Re: HVLP Spray Guns?
Here is how I see it . HVLP's are nice , but more expensive and do require a bit more "finesse" . One thing to consider is whether or not you have adequate means of ventilation for and air type gun , if not an HVLP is the way to go . Problem with them is cost , you do get what you pay for although a lightly used cheap one should suffice for more than you would need in the long run . Just gotta take care of it , as others have said keep oiled and clean , or it won't last . Concentrate on dust control first and foremost , surface prep and proper mixing follow in suit . Research the type of paint you are considering , some of the newer types of poly's ect. will take scratching better than the old style enamels , acrylics are very hard but do not flex well if pushed . Look for the highest durability with good flex quality , you can't go wrong ....
