I have about 10 sprayers 8^) about half were given to me and are basically useless.

For woodworking I have an Earlex 7000 HVLP with a full needle set and several small “touch-up” compressor driven type guns.

For years I used what basically is the Harbor Freight touchup gun (Pratco, the source for cheesy tools before HF came along). Recently the packings went south and I really needed it so I bought a DevilBiss SRI which is the cats meow for excellent spray and control. The Earlex is just too big for anything smaller than a side table, but it does well for larger surfaces (haven’t tried spraying any paints with it yet) The old Pratco would spray anything short of latex.

Having two primary guns is optimum for me, the smaller guy is the go-to for almost any non-paint application however.
