Title: Spray gun
Post by: Andy on March 20, 2010, 09:05:14 AM
I've got a small 4.5 hp, 15 gallon tank, compressor. Is there an inexpensive (cheap) spray gun I could use with this?
 
I need to prime the inner fender wells, and other brackets, parts etc. in the engine compartment. Maybe even spray some small stuff black. I'm just tired of running back and forth to the auto parts store to buy spray can primer.

For priming and small parts, one of thode 19.95 Chinee guns from Harbor Freight or a local flea market will be fine.
Ask me how I know...

cheaper guns tend to use more CFM's.....try Lowes or Home Depot's guns....the gravity feed cups lessen the amount of air and thinner you need to move the paint so they are more economical to use.

Harbor Freight does have little one cup capacity spray guns that are great for one fender at a time and are still under $30, just a little smaller than a rattle can and you can clean them real easy, mine has a non-stick surface for easy internal cup cleaning.

I was looking at Harbor Freight's web site earlier today and thought about one of these two guns:
http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=47016 (http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=47016) or
 
http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=91009 (http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=91009) Are either of these like yours?

This one works real well, even down to 14psi.

One of their stores is just 30 minutes from here. I'll have to take a run up there and look at their selection.

The Harbor Freight HVLP guns work just fine in my experience.
