On page 118 of the Woodcraft catalog is the Wood River HVLP spray gun. It looks exactly the same as my Porter Cable gravity feed gun, which I really like for spraying lacquer. Has anyone used this gun? Part # is 149388. The amazing thing is it only costs $34. If it is any good, I would like to get it as a gift for a friend.
Thanks

I bought one of these with the intention of spraying lacquer…. I just have not got around to it yet. I used the gun on a few small painting jobs (latex) and it worked just fine.

Thanks Charlie,
Did you spray latex with the 1.4mm tip that comes with the gun, or did you buy the 2.0mm kit?
That gun is less than half the cost of the P.C. version – looks like a great deal.

I used the needle that came with it, but I did thin the latex a tad.

I believe this is the model that Charles Neil reviewed last summer. He said for the price it was an excellent gun.

I wanted to start doing some spraying, so I picked one up when it was on sale – $25!

I have sprayed shellac on some drawer boxes, and some stain on a larger project. I don’t have a lot of experience, but I think it did a nice job. I’ve never used it for lacquer.

Pick one up. For the investment, I don’t think you can go wrong

I have used it for water based and really liked it. I posted some more detailed info here

Since then I have used it a few more times, the gun is working fine, though the cup fell apart.

Have your say...
