Time to go to school….
I have a 5HP 20 gallon Campbell Hausfeld compressor. 5.8 scfm @ 90 PSI and 6.6 scfm @ 40 PSI. A couple years ago I purchased a HVLP spray gun from Harbor Freight. The saying “you get what you pay for” has never been more true, as I paid about $25. Anyway, I think the gun was a bad idea as it sucked every time I tried to use it. It left a bad taste in my mouth.
I need to put a finish on some kitchen cabinets I am building and I would like to see if I can do it using HVLP. Do I need to buy a setup like Fuji or Turbinare? Are there guns on the market that will do a good job, with my compressor, at a reasonable price, say under $200. Are there specific guns for finishing options? Or will a good gun shoot most of the spectrum.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. I will look in on this thread frequently and will answer any questions as quickly as I can.
