Thanks DW,
I’ll take a look.

I don’t have experience with any of them,
so I was hoping someone that had experience with one could chime in. experience.

I had an airless sprayer I used to paint my house. It was a beast. Lately I’ve seen videos where two hoses are going to the gun and couldn’t figure out why there were two. I see now that’s obviously the air assist and material hoses.

It’s not much help, but I’ve been really impressed with the volume and even coverage I see them put out watching videos. At a $3K+ price point, I won’t be offering any first-hand feedback anytime soon.

The main downside with airless is the material left in the hose. For a 1/4” x 50 foot hose that’s about 6 ounces. You’re probably dealing with the same issue with a pressure pot though, so I’m sure you have tricks to salvage most of it.

If I remember correctly, at the last woodworking convention I went to, the airless I looked at had a valve that would reverse the flow back into the container. Clean up is just going to be part of it.

The pressure pot keeps the material air tight, so it’s not a problem.
I don’t think it’s the case with the airless.
I am already mentally prepared that I will have to clean it after each use.

I’ll still use my pressure pots for paint and just keep the airless for final clear coat finishes.

I hear a lot of people saying they don’t want to have to clean their guns after spraying, but it’s just another thing. Just like sanding before staining, it’s just going to be part of it.

You have to make sure there are no clamo marks on the surface. :)
(some people scrape it)
Personally, they way I work, I have to do a lot of sanding.

You don’t use ”Clamos” with spray painting projects! They are for special situations…
Below is an example of a cheap Chinese knockoff of true Clampo …

You will soon after you have to start over a finishing project, from experience :(
The hardest part is trying to remove the marks left by a Clamo..

Yes, sanding is required. For small items I do use a scraper but larger stuff the sander gets the job done and is much easier on bad wrist.

The Grayco and Titan now make their airless for fine finishing! :)
I had the the experience of trying a Titan

https://www.titantool.com/industry/fine-finishing/wood-cabinets/flexspraytm/

to spray enamel with no dilution. It did not work out. But the efforts of Sherwin Williams and Titan offering to come by my small shop to assist.
And they honored their 30 day Money back…
Also, as a former, B general contractor in AZ talking and seeing painters their opinion- Titan was tops, for many reasons.
I would go Titan
As for cleaning the equipment? Personally I prefer to clean my own “stuff” and with experience- it is similar to packing your own parachute.
