This is great for anyone that wants a affordable way to get into hvlp finishing. I have finished tons of projects with this unit with great results. Some think this unit is under powered but really with proper thinning it will spray anything even latex paint. Now the only issue it has is that the blue coating on the gun dissolved in areas because a helper soaked in for a bit in lacquer thinner. However it is only a cosmetic issue and otherwise is like new. I utilize only fuji turbines now in shop and on the jobsite just because our volume of work has increased and i wanted a new finishing system. This will be a great unit for many woodworkers though.

I am asking for $125.00 and that includes all shipping and packaging charges.

If I didn’t already have one I’d definitely consider this for that price. I do like mine.

I have looked at this unit as a second unit but decided to take a pass due to the fact that the gun is a bleeder type. I used a bleeder gun once and did not like the fact that air is delivered thru the gun while the turbin is in operation.

Alright guys in hopes of getting rid of this unit soon Im lowering the price. It has been sitting for many weeks and i hate seeing a tool go to waste hence the sheep price. I am now looking for $125.00 shipped! At that price its a huge deal.
