We recently moved and my air compressor was in storage. After having a shed built that needed to be painted I decided to buy this and give it a shot for that purpose as well as for laying down some stain on a swingset that needed refinished.
I chose an exterior latex paint for the shed project and thinned it out per instructions. Wasn't sure what to expect but I must say I was very pleasantly surprised with the performance. The turbine is a bit noisy but with properly thinned paint you should have no problems with the standard needle this comes installed with. The controls on the gun are somewhat limited but at this price point it does a fine job. For the stain project I went with a smaller needle (purchased separately) and had equally good results there. This is a lot more portable than my big air compressor so I think this is going to be a great finishing tool to have as an option. Not sure why I waited so long to try one!
I had my first woodworking project ready to clear and could not bring myself to bushing my life away. Splurged on this guy, unboxed it, swapped the needle out and put it to work. Its a nice alternative to a compressor, dryer and hvlp setup.
I attached a pic of one layer of clear. I used minwax poly base fast dry and did not thin it first time around. I may thin it a bit next time, it sprayed fine I just wish it atomized a touch more.
When I first purchased, I was afraid of the time spent cleaning after each use but it's really quite easy to clean, just don't lose the tools that come with it.
We ordered another special fine point needle for the use of cabinets. It look a really long time and needed 2-3 coats of paint on bare wood after the application of a primer. The end result did look smooth and professional. We are deciding if it will just be faster using a smooth roller instead of using this sprayer for our next project.
Overall, the Earlex Spray Station is a great product to use if you have enough patience or really good technique to make it apply quicker.
Compact unit, light weight and about as noisy as a vacuum cleaner, I sent a Fuji back and kept this one!!
