When I took this Tool Force sprayer out of its box I could see and feel it was much, much nicer that the price I paid for it. There isn't anything cheap looking about the sprayer. The head, needle and the body emulates the quality of my guns ten times the price.
I've paid more for just a needle kit for other sprayers.
I started off spraying Latex paint. I knew I had to thin it, and it wouldn't deliver the volume equal to the Airless. But, after tinkering with the air/volume/fan adjustments it's performance actually amazed me. It is fantastic on small projects. It easily opens up on big areas and tones down on intricate areas. Loose the Air Regulator and install a light whip hose and this gun gets everywhere, at all angles. The material in the cup weighs almost as much as the whole gun. It still worked good with a small compressor, but it performs best with a big compressor with more air volume.
I tried using a few of those 'electric' guns. Besides being inefficient, they are Very noisy and heavy.
After a couple hours use, I cleaned almost the whole Sprayer with just water, then a little lacquer thinner to make it look like new again. My airless sprayers takes 2 hours to disassemble the pump, filter, hose and gun, and a gallon of lacquer thinner.
So, I'm now considering purchasing a Nice HLVP. But this one has such an even delivery of material, a perfect conical spray pattern and fantastic control with all the available adjustments..... I'll have to see what other models they have. Maybe another cool color.
Internet searches will give you tips how to hold and move the gun, what tip sizes are needed for your type of work, pressure settings etc. Then practice on a piece of scrap. Even after doing all of this homework, I still managed to get a run on the first side of the first door. A little more experimenting revealed that I had the pressure too low (30 psi). I turned it up to 40 and presto! Easy spraying and a smooth finish. The information avaliable will tell you to use the lowest pressure possible but but my experience is don't be afraid to turn it up a bit for varnishes.
What I really liked about the gun:
- Great price
- Easy to clean (takes maybe 5 minutes - compare that to a big paint sprayer!)
- Has a pressure guage and adjustment at the gun. This is important because the pressure at the compressor may be different than the pressure at the end of the hose.
- You get two useful tip sizes
The provided pressure regulator is a nice addition, but wish it were of higher quality, then again I wouldn't expect much more from a $20-$30 HVLP gun.
The only real complaint is the trigger, when using the gun for a period longer then 15 minutes your hand and fingers get fatigued, but applying some PlastiDip or other similar product helps.
All in all a very reasonably price HVLP gun that does a decent job.
I was painting a wood cabinet that was previously primed with Kilz.
I used new ACE latex acrylic enamel semi-gloss and the 2.0 tip
I thinned the paint with a bit of water and added some Floetrol to slow drying.
It works nice at about 45 psi on the regulator
Much easier and quicker than brushing and the finish is very smooth.
p.s. - I spoke with minwax and they told me you are not supposed to spray their products.
Next I went to a industrial coating distributor where I was buying some water based laquer (Kem Aqua Plus). I brought the gun. The owner was very nice and took me to a spray both and showed me how to shoot this product with my gun.
He sells high end professional spray guns. I told him this was a cheap $30 gun. After he sprayed with it he said it was a great little gun and was very impressed.
So instructions for this gun says to shoot at around 43 to 50 lbs. A friend told me 30lbs (which is what I shot the minwax at).
However, the man from the shop told me you always want to shoot as low as you can. This product actually had very specific specs and called for 8-10 lbs.
So that is where we set it and it shoots great.
Can't go wrong with this gun.
BTW - The pressure control valve seems like it does not work at first, but it does. You pull out the knob to adjust it. Then turn it WAY out counter clockwise to get to the lower pressures call for by HVLP guns. I am running about 120 lbs in my compressor.
