I’ve seen a bunch of posts about HVLP, turbines, and various other related topics, but I can’t find anything in the way of a specific recommendation for a specific brand gun. Secondly, I’m not 100% sure how the HVLP vs LVMP vs LVLP issue applies to me. And I’m not interested in a turbine system. I have a compressor rated at 6.3 SCFM @ 40PSIG and [email protected] I like the idea of LVLP using less material than HVLP and being more compressor-friendly, and from what I’ve read, LVMP has better atomization than HVLP. But there are lots of contradictory statements online, and no firm reliable recommendations. I’m spraying as much water based finishes as possible, but also some solvent based conversion varnish and urethane. In an ideal world I’d have one gun that could shoot those pigmented and clear finishes, and occasionally latex. But for this gun I won’t try latex. Any suggestions? What works for you? What does your friend use? Is it a DeVilbiss/Binks choice? If so, which models, the Binks Trophy? Who’s your go-to vendor/dealer?
