I am in the market for an HVLP Turbine system or an LVLP gun. I have a 1.8HP dewalt compressor 5.4cfm @ 90psi. No specs on 40psi that is common with HVLP’s. I am going to be spraying Latex, Laquer, Glazing and Enamel. I was looking at the 3M Accuspray LVLP 19C today at the paint store. It specifies only 5cfm at 43psi. Have any you guys or gals used the ACCUSPRAY? Should i just bite the bullet and get a Fuji or Appolo turbine and matched gun?

Which HFLP sprayer did you eventually get?

Mark, I ended up getting the Accuspray 19c. I tried a wagner airless, Home Cheapo’s husky HVLP set, and an HVLP from Grizzly before settling on the Accuspray. There was a learning curve, but considering the setup I have I am very happy with it so far and the 3M rep was awesome. I called him with some troubleshooting questions and ended up with a free air cap and a case of disposable PPS inserts. Great customer service. If I was going to do more spray finishing I think I would have got a Fuji just to be more compact and quieter. If you already have a big enough compressor and aren’t spraying latex like me you may be able to get away with a cheaper setup. I am no expert though. If you are looking at sprayers try contacting Jeff Jewitt. He wrote articles for Tauntons and fine wood working magazine and personally responds to emails. He is a super nice guy and I found his finishing book and video to be very useful.
Hope I helped you Mark
