Has anyone had experience with the Wagner stain and Paint sprayer? I’m looking for an electric or low cost air spray gun for staining and clear coating.
Any suggestions is appreciated.
Thanks

They work very well for water based products. Oil based products come out too heavy. That’s my opinion.

Is there a way to dilute with mineral spirits so it flows better or is there really no way to get a even coat with polyurethane.

I have a Wagner Control Spray Max. Works really well with water based stuff. I’ve never sprayed any oil-based material through it, though I have sprayed thinned out latex paint, as well as, thinned acrylic alkyd paints. Those also worked well.

I think the oil based poly is to thin and the surface tension dynamics are not as condusive to an even spray.
Turn the power up and the play with the nozzle adjustments. You may find a combo that works. They are good units.
