I am looking to purchase a paint sprayer. I have an air compressor. I would mostly use it to spray oil based paints.

I would love to hear your thoughts as to which make / model you would recommend.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you want to spray house paint. In that case you should get a gun with a large needle. Or an airless.

I just saw your post here and thought I would chime in. I have been a painter decorator for 22 years. I would suggest an airless sprayer (Graco mod. 360) with a #11 tip keep the pressure low. The compressor type gives you to much overspray as you are pushing more air than paint…. If I can help in any way please contact me… Good Luck John (aka Woodmight )
