I just purchased a HVLP sprayer from Harbor freight (model 93305). I went low cost as this is the first sprayer I have used, and they were on sale. A couple of Jocks have given pretty favorable reviews on it also. I have two questions about the sprayer and two unrelated spraying questions:
1. Can I use an oil base polyurethane in it? I called Harbor Freight tech support and he said yes, but there was a lot of hesitation in his voice. It was the first time he had this question.
2. Whether I use oil base or water base – do I need to cut the poly, and by how much?
3. I used a MinWax oil based stain, is there any problem using a water based poly over it?
3. If it isn’t windy, can I spray outside or do I need to make myself a makeshift booth?
