I have decided it is time to move up to spraying finishes in my home woodshop.
Most of my projects to date have been small, the largest being dresser sized, most much smaller. I don’t ever expect to do large jobs, with one exception: I am helping justify the cost of a spray system by using it to stain my deck every third year or so. I don’t do a lot of finishing, but when I do I want the best possible results with the widest range of finishes.
Because of health, environment, and the direction the finish industry is moving, I want a system that is good with low VOC / waterbased finishes. My compressor is a 5 gallon 5.2CFM at 40 unit.
I had been tormenting myself over Fuji Mini-Mite 3 vs 4, and gravity cup vs bottom cup. I wrote to “SprayGunPros.com” and explained my interests, and they recommended a low-pressure gun instead. the Asturo ECO . I was not aware such critters existed, and now have yet another option with which to torment myself. This is an Italian made gun, and the few reviews of it I have found are very good.
I’m sure I’m not the first one to struggle down this road. I hate to spend dollars needlessly, but would rather buy quality once than go cheap and have to lay down more in the future.
Advise and comments much appreciated.
