I am considering purchasing a Homeright Super Finish Max HVLP Paint Sprayer and would appreciate any information anyone would have. I am also interested in anything anyone would like to share in regard to similar HVLP options at an affordable price.

I have a larger air compressor in my shop, but my (clean) finish area is in the house basement and I would prefer to avoid the hassle of moving the compressor back and forth. I also have a smaller air compressor for my finish area but use it primarily for final brad nail assembly and it is likely not large enough for spraying. I would also like to avoid the issues involved in HVLP spraying with an air compressor as the source, but am open to hearing opinions in that regard.

My primary usage would be for General Finishes products including Milk Paint, High Performance Topcoat, Exterior 450 Topcoat, Pre-Stain Conditioner, Water Based Stain, and also products such as Behr Porch and Patio Floor Paint, as well as other latex paints and primers. The items I intend to spray are wood furniture, individual boards and craft-type items.

Basically after spending hours of time painting with a brush, I am in need of an alternative means that can provide a quality finish, speed and efficiency, and to fit into a reasonable price point.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you for the reply and the review. At the present, I am considering holding off and perhaps going a more expensive route when the budget allows. I sincerely appreciate your reply.

Campbell Hausfeld DH580000AV
It’s $25 tool that will give great results. Keep it clean and lube the screws.
Clone of a Sata Jet.
I have Sata and bought this on a whim.

I purchased the homeright super finish max and love it, I’m no expert but I’ve run latex and stain through it and it performs superbly.

I’m saving up to buy a Fuji Mini Mite 4 but this machine gives me great results; I’m new to the hvlp scene but am impressed with what this machine can do. As long as you sand between coats it really gives a great surface finish.

Hope this helps.

If you want fine furniture type finishes I dont think a $100 airless will do it. My experience with a similar product was that it is really for wall and outdoor painting/coating. Doesnt atomize well enough.

I have a larger air compressor in my shop, but my (clean) finish area is in the house basement and I would prefer to avoid the hassle of moving the compressor back and forth. I also have a smaller air compressor for my finish area but use it primarily for final brad nail assembly and it is likely not large enough for spraying. I would also like to avoid the issues involved in HVLP spraying with an air compressor as the source, but am open to hearing opinions in that regard.

Ive used a 100 ft 1/4” air hose with my spray gun. No need to move the compressor, just roll and unroll the hose. A compressed air gun provides much more viscosity range, with the right needles and tips vs a turbine. As for airless, havent priced them but a good setup would probably run 1k, and then you are messing with pressure pots etc. compressed air hvlp, also called conversion guns, are the best way to go for max flexibility unless the system needs to be moved to different locations. As mentioned, a selection of needles and tips are needed, – about 1.0 to 2.0 mm. The cheap guns from box stores only come with one set and other sets arent available. The key to spraying is atomization, controlled by adj to fan and material flow, and air cap design. The cheap guns nneed to be ran at higher pressures creating a lot of overspray. Which brings up another issue – what are your plans for air flow and filtering in your finish room?
