Ok, so after too much research, I have come to the conclusion that with my $500 budget, my woodworking paint needs will be best served by buying an HVLP air rig. My thoughts are that this will better atomize paint than a 3 stage turbine. Since they are both in the budget, the compressor setup seems best because of the future flexibility of it.
Here’s what I have come up with so far. As always, thoughts and opinions are welcomed.
compressor – Husky 30 gallon oil compressor. It says it will do 6 SCFM at 90psi, so i’m assuming that it can at least do 7 SCFM at 40psi. http://www.homedepot.com/Tools-Hardware-Air-Compressors-Tools-Accessories-Portable-Compressors/h_d1/N-5yc1vZbb2v/R-100063473/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&storeId=10051
gravity feed HVLP gun – Husky. Looks decent to me. http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100378501/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=hvlp+gun&storeId=10051
