  YOUR 1 STOP SHOP FOR PAINT GUNS AND SUPPLIES!
Hi-End Woodworking spray guns

Our HVLP, Reduced Pressure Complaint and Conventional Guns are designed for fine-finishing. This includes... High grade furniture, pianos, cabinets, trim work, shutters, doors, machinery - anywhere a 'Class A' coating is to be applied. If you already own airless equipment or even an Air Assisted Airless or Airmix and you are looking for a superior finish, you'll find that an HVLP or Conventional Complaint (reduced pressure) system will complement your system perfectly - Use our guns anywhere were a superior "cannot get any better" top quality finish is required. Yes, better than an Air Assisted Airless; Yes, better than Turbine; Yes, better than Airmix.

What our professional guns are designed to do: If you have ever tried to hand paint a door, imagine spraying a flawless door in a matter of minutes and not having to buff or sand... that is what we are trying to achieve with our guns.

Consumer Grade Guns = a Consumer Grade Finish. But worse still. Cheap guns look good in the store, but they are NOT PROFESSIONAL. These guns are geared toward a consumer grade finish (our guns spray much smoother and flatter), do not last more then a few months and typically have no repair parts available. We call them "throw away" guns or the most expensive guns you will ever buy, since they end up in the trash. Here is some common thoughts from a person.

"What I found is that when the gun is new, it works fair...spray's even, with less overspray. But as I use them for three months or more, the spray quality deteriorates. I tried to buy replacement parts, but I had problems getting them. I bought a new gun waiting for parts and again it worked for a few months and started to degrade. I had to have a gun to finish the plaques and get them out, so bought another NOT SGW GUNS. But, I won't buy **** again."

"I purchased a $80 ***** gun from ***** store and to my dismay it ruined my work. It seems like the material I used melted the aircap so I got color pigmentation in my clear coat. It is in the trash now."

What about my local store? The guns SGW recommends have been tried and tested by other wood craftsmen like yourself. We listen to your feedback and offer systems that WORK FOR WOOD! Often, local stores will sell you spray guns with an incorrect tip set! and have no clue that there is a differences in wood material and coatings versus other coatings! Such guns will not work well for you... Also, remember, you are purchasing at wholesale prices: this means when you purchase a $75.00 spray gun here, you will likely find it for $150.00 at a local store. We would not sell a retail spray gun for $75.00 as that spray gun quality would be too low for a professional. If we did sell such an import, it would likely be priced at $28.00 here. Can you imagine the poor quality of a retail priced $59.99 HVLP spray gun found at your local hardware store, or Harbor Freight!!!! You will not find such guns here. We could purchase those "Chinese imports" at $12 our cost but WE DO NOT.

With today's high demands for mirror finishes and fast working speeds, from cabinets work to trims, and doors, many woodworkers are using high quality spray equipment on their woodwork. Stains, Clears, Metallic Flakes, Iron Work and Lacquers and enamels - we have the right tools to help you get a professional finish. Note: Recommendations are to be used as a starting point reference and are not an absolute application for all refinish material brands.

PRESSURE SETUP

Most common for woodworkers

(most popular setup for production shops) Many woodworkers enjoy a pressure setup. Pressure Setups gives the woodworker tremendous control over their spraying and is great for traditional materials as well as those woodworkers who like to experiment with different and unconventional material and or finishes. These setups also allow for hookup to larger pots for small to large production facilities or shops where large volume of material is applied. We have several pressure setup available from those starting out on a 1 liter cup to industrial 2-5 gallon or even 10 gallon tank setups.

GRAVITY FEED

Recommended for smaller production and ease of use

(most popular setup for smaller shops and individuals) Woodworkers have found the convenience and ease of use of gravity feed guns. These guns are a great alternative to a pressure setup. The benefits of Gravity Feed are ease of use and ease of cleanup. If you stick with standard woodworking materials or are doing regular size jobs we suggest these guns.

Note: Worried about the cup on the top? Yes you can spray upsidedown or at any angle - Check out our disposable cup systems for easy cleanup and use.

 


SUCTION FEED

not recommended due to the lower atomization power of these guns as compared to #1 & #2 & #3. However if you have been spraying for a long time and are used to the cup on the bottom we offer several options:

1) you can get a pressure gun (see#2) with a small pressurized cup on the bottom or

2) Click here for the latest versions of traditional suction "cup on the bottom guns". Please note: we recommend 2.0 tip set or higher for wood. 1.8 is a more common size so be careful when purchasing elsewhere or non wood shops as these do not work well for wood finishes.

TURBINE HVLP

Recommended for those who want portability hassle free use in a self contained system.

If portability, self filtration, 20lbs, and small size is your main issue look at a turbine unit. These units typically run around 20 lbs and are easy to move around and run off a 110v outlet. The small size means they are low powered so be sure to look at a minimum of 3 stage and we recommend 4 stage for woodworking.

If you already have a compressor. We also have the X Series II which operates on a 40 lbs 110v 4 gallon compressor and you can use the compressor for other tools. While not as light, it is a great alternative to Turbine Units.

 

 

What tips should I get?

Recommendations are to be used as a starting point reference and are not an absolute application for all refinish material brands. They are not meant to imply that any given air cap/fluid tip combination can not be used to successfully spray any given refinish material. Technique and personal preference must also be considered.

As a general Rule, a 1.5-1.8 HVLP Gravity can handle most materials. (1.0-1.4 for pressure feed)

Generally, go smaller for Stains (1.0-1.3 Gravity / .8-1.0 pressure feed)
For Wood Waterbornes (1.5-1.8 depending on the brand Gravity - 1.0-1.3 pressure feed)
larger for primer surfacers, lacquers and traditional lacquers and enamels (1.5-1.8 Gravity / 1.0-1.3 pressure feed)
For Urethanes use a viscosity cup as they vary per manufacturer (1.4-1.8 Gravity / 1.0-1.4 pressure)
We recommend DeVilbiss Guns because they generally come with multiple tips to handle all your finer refinishing needs.
