With these guns being mass produced like they are there is a chance you can get a lemon so right when you get your guns test them with solvent. Put the cup on (hand tight only, if it leaks tighten slightly) and adjust the air at the gun very low 10-15 psi and see what kind of pattern you can get spraying against a brown piece of cardboard. Adjust the air pressure, fan width and volume (needle) until you get what looks like a cigar shape on the cardboard when you goose the gun real quick. If it is fat on top or bottom check that the gun is clean and try again. If it is still fat on top or bottom return them and get new ones.
These guns have a pretty nice chrome finish which helps during clean up. Try and stay away from anodized guns and ones that are not smooth as paint is harder to clean from them. I recommend the "DeVilbiss DPC8 Spray Gun Cleaning Bottle - 16 oz. Capacity" found here on Amazon for $6.50. It will save you more than that on lacquer thinner in two cleanings. These guns need to be taken apart right after each use for cleaning. Treat the fluid nozzle and needle with care. If you drop them you will probably have to replace them to get a good pattern again. Most people using HVLP guns use way to much air pressure at the gun. Heavy bodied primers you might need 20 psi or so but base coats and thin clears stay around 10-15 psi. They use high volumes of air, not high pressure to atomize the fluid. See how low you can go and get good atomization on a test piece. Also make sure to use the correct fluid nozzle/needle for the material you are trying to spray. Thin material 1.0, med 1.3 and heavy stuff 1.8. At 1.8 I am not sure these can spray latex paint though.
Now for the larger gun..... It leaked from day one. I tightened down the cup and it still leaked. I tightened it down some more and by this time the plastic gasket was so deformed it leaked real bad to the point I would not use it anymore.
I am a woodfinisher with nearly 30 years under my belt so I do know how to spray...I do know to respect a tool...and I do know how important it is to keep my tools nice and clean and in tip top working order.
I grew up using the DeVilbiss and Binks lines of spray guns but the quality control should be much better than it is.Because of these issues I wont be able to recommend this product to a prospective buyer.
One saving note...maybe. I did contact DeVilbiss and they promised me a new cup for the larger gun but as of yet I have not received it. In the meantime after originally contacting DeVilbiss, the smaller cup bit the dust just a few days after I contacted DeVilbiss. I doubt they will replace IT so it looks like Im going to be out $16.00 dollars.
Here is an update as of 1-08-2013. I did contact DeVilbiss company about the quality of the cups and gaskets that came with my HVLP set and DeVilbiss has sent me replacement cups for the large gun as well as the smaller one. They also have sent me two replacement gasket sets for each cup.
I have put both these guns back into service and so far no leaks.
I've also had minor issues with leaks on the cups.
So, as other have already stated, great entry level guns but the quality control is a little loose. For the price I think these are a great deal.
It worked much better than the super cheap $25 HVLP that I got from eBay!
Very pleased with the way these guns lay down paint. Good for a beginner.
