Hope you enjoy!!

Iʻm assuming you are going to add it to your projects.

Nice bookshelf.

very nice lance, what kind of paint are you spraying (I know the yellow is milk paint). Did you have to do anything special to the paint to get the 5500 to spray the paint nicely? It looks like a very nice paint job, and the last time I sprayed paint with my earlex (I do not paint a lot of projects), I had a tough go of it.

Emetric -

I used General Finishes Milk Paint on both the white and yellow, all I did was add 10-15% water to thin the milk paint out, which is already pretty thin to begin with. I installed a 2.0 needle in my 5500 and she sprays like a champ!!! Hope this helps on your next painted project.

Thanks for sharing my video, spraying GF Milk Paint with the 5500 makes finishing easy again.

Awesome Bookshelf. Also, I posted a question on your “Workshop” thread, if you have a chance, can you answer it.

Have your say...
