Topic tags/keywords: hvlp sprayer homeright question

Rockler is offering the HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer for about $70. Home Depot and Amazon have it for about the same price. It’s an HVLP sprayer that seems to have it’s own little compressor with it. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with it. The reviews aren’t that sterling, but the derogatory ones seem to have thought it was an Earlex 5500. I’m not trying to spray paint with it or do a house. I just want to spray thinned shellac as a sealer. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks, Dave. That’s a bigger model than the $70 version, but that had a lot of good information.

Glad to help! I am eyeing one of those myself, right after I get over the pain of buying my new dust collector and then all the duct work that goes with it :)

Harbor Freight, Rockler, Wagner, and Campbell Hausefield all have set ups like that. I have tried all but the Rockler. They work very well with water based finishes, and of course the clean up is very easy. I like the CH better than the HF because the gun is a little more robust—more metal and less plastic. Also, the hose attachment is better. The Wagner has a 2 speed blower, which is good, but I don’t like the plastic orifice and needle. The others all use metal for those parts.

The Rockler looks identical to the HF version.
