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 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.
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)
We also have a wide selection of quality tools for the Professional and Serious Hobbist at www.SprayGunWorld.com.
