straight talk about wood finishing

HVLP; which one?

Q: I’m looking into buying an HVLP turbine system that will spray oil based and waterbased finishes, including latex paint. Many folks seem to be very happy with the Fuji Q4 Gold; then there’s the Earlex HV6900.
A: The Fuji system is excellent, though if I had to name my current favorite, money no object, it would be 3M’s Accuspray system, in part because it is compact and portable, and in part because of its excellent gun and PPS delivery system. On the other hand, for the money, Earlex certainly is the best system for the least cash, and will probably do all you want it to do.
