I recently purchased an Earlex Spray Station and have not been able to get it to properly atomize the finish I’m trying to spray. I’m trying to refinish a kitchen table and chairs using Sherwin-Williams hi-bild pre-cat lacquer (tinted black). Below are the steps that I followed with poor results.
1. Viscosity without thinning was 1min 45 seconds
I ended up going back to my compressor run HVLP gun from Harbor freight which works great for small things. I used it to spray some chairs but there’s no way my small compressor will keep up in order to finish the top.
Am I doing something totally wrong here? I haven’t tried any other materials in it so I suppose it’s possible that the finish is just not compatible with this gun. Any help would be appreciated even if it makes me feel less than a genius.
