    My first foray into spraying finish (I have the HF HVLP) was with Zinsser BIN primer. The results were spectacular straight out of the can, but the primer is more expensive than other primers. Not to mention the need for DNA cleanup doesn't help with the cost per use. Knowing that I have many...

    I'm having trouble getting a precise finish on anything double sided, like shelves. I always seem to end up with drips on the underside, or sagging on the edges. Let's say I'm using General Finishes water based top coat. I apply it with a fairly dry applicator pad, yet I inevitably get sagging...

    Hi Lumberjocks, I recently traded an old fridge for a Capspray 10000 and was curious if anyone has had experience using one? I will be in need of HVLP spraying for upcoming cabinet building projects that will be painted not stained as well as eventually guitar finishes. The unit does not have a...

    My wife has informed me that we're re-doing the house. This includes changing out 13 interior doors and replacing nearly all of the trim moulding throughout the entire house. Oh, she also wants the change to include white-painted wood rather than stained. I do not know whether she wants latex or...

    So I am doing a large media center for a customer and had some material on hand, that being prefinished birch ply. My customer wanted the unit painted white and I have been wanting to try GF Milk Paint for a while now after reading good reviews on it. So not wanting to screw up, I talked with...
