    I just finished making a new daggerboard for my son's sailboat. I used a special marine-grade white polyurethane for the finish, but I don't have any paint spray equipment. I ended up getting the "Preval" paint sprayer at Home Depot, and was impressed how well it worked. But I think it's time...

    I was given a Rockler HVLP-1000 sprayer that is missing its hose. I contacted Rockler and they don't have parts or support for it any longer. Does anyone have a suggestion for a replacement or a way to make a new hose? I don't know what the original hose looked like. Thank you!

    I was thinking about upgrading to a 3 stage sprayer. I currently use brushes and a high density foam roller. Will the results be different and is it worth it?

    $10 HVLP Sprayer that WORKS! I have been playing with spraying projects lately. I like the look of a sprayed finish and enjoy it more.

    I've had a (used) Jet 1236 lathe for about a month. Everything works great - even the reeves drive. Maybe it's not done anymore, but I've been trying to find some guidance for periodic maintenance. The "Operator Manual" is the assembly instructions and a parts list. There isn't even any...

    I recently purchased an Earlex 5500 to paint a bunch of trim. I decided I am also going to try painting a bedroom with it. I did a test run tonight on some scrap drywall, and I'm not sure what to think. Here are the details: - ~8oz of Ben Moore Regal (old style, not new Regal Select) - 2oz...

    I read a lot of good advice on how Rebecca should paint her kitchen cabinets, but would you use the same paints and techniques when painting a bookshelf? I'm a relative beginner woodworker and very inexperienced at good paint jobs. The bookshelves are mostly made of Poplar and high grade...

    Hey guys, have a question. I'm in the market to buy an airless paint sprayer. Kind of lost with how many products there are. The types of projects I will use it for are wood stains etc, for small woodworking projects and interior paint for kids beds and other projects. Also, I am on budget...

    So I have had a lot of help from the readers in my other post about my problems with staining maple to a real dark color. I appreciate all the input, but I have restraints that keep me from incorporating all or most of the suggestions. I may need to buy a sprayer to spray some dye and toner on...
