Check out the reviews section here. Sprayer prices run the scale from one end to the other. Also do some research on what type would work best for you: gravity feed, airless, those with the container on the bottom or those that just pump the liquid like those Wagner’s. Oh yeah, don’t worry about those occasional typos.

DAMHIKT but you don’t want to spray polyurethane or other slow drying oil based products unless you what everything in you shop to be sticky.

I have sprayed poly in the shop with a gravity feed HVLP gun that runs off a compressor. I didn’t notice any residue on shop equipment. However, I much prefer spraying lacquer because it dries quicker and you can apply two coats inside of a day.

As far as a gun, I would recommend a Porter Cable PSH1 gravity feed gun. Woodriver makes a comparable gun form less, but it doesn’t include the regulator. I have both guns, among others, and those two work quite well.

Neither poly nor lacquer are food safe finishes.

You did not post what compressor you have. Does it have capacity enough to run a spray gun?
