I read something about this in forums, I was wondering what all you can spray with one. Can you do paint? If so, how do you go about it, do you have to thin the paint?
I’ll only be using it to spray adirondack chairs and small deck tables.

Edumacate me.

I believe these units have a velocity cup you run your material through first. You check how long it takes to empty the cup. If it takes too long then you thin your material.
Then when you get the correct consistence, strain your material through cheese cloth, or strainer, and put it in the HVLP cup and spray away.
I always practice on scrap first, to check for spray pattern and coverage.
They work well. Just follow the wet line.
You’ll get the hang of it.

waho6o9, I must admit that from the picture I have no idea how it works. I think I’ll pay HF a visit tomorrow and see for myself how the thing works.

The VC is for determining what tip you will use and it is based on time. Before thinning you will need to filter the paint before you thin it… If its single stage it may not hold up over the short haul. You get what you pay for when it comes to tools buy your last tool first.
