Editor's Review:

by Chris A. Minick

review date: October 25, 2005

Pros: The AT 950 is the most compact, portable system of those tested. The gun is made of metal, and the system has an air-reducing valve to regulate atomization pressure.

Con: The air hose is slightly stiff.

For a full review, read Chris A. Minick’s article in the August 1999 issue of Fine Woodworking magzine, available on the Fine Woodworking Network.
