Tool Force A-C1 50 PSI 2-in-1 HVLP Spray Gun Review
(More customer reviews)I picked up this gun to spray oil based urethane on my front doors. It was impossible to get a smooth and even finish with a brush with Varathane's satin urethane - I tried twice. So, although I have never used a spray gun, I deciced to give this one a try and see if I could get a satisfactory finish. I was not disappointed with the end result. The finish is far better than can be achieved with a brush. Just be prepaired for a little learning curve when learning to spray.
Internet searches will give you tips how to hold and move the gun, what tip sizes are needed for your type of work, pressure settings etc. Then practice on a piece of scrap. Even after doing all of this homework, I still managed to get a run on the first side of the first door. A little more experimenting revealed that I had the pressure too low (30 psi). I turned it up to 40 and presto! Easy spraying and a smooth finish. The information avaliable will tell you to use the lowest pressure possible but but my experience is don't be afraid to turn it up a bit for varnishes.
What I really liked about the gun:
- Great price
- Easy to clean (takes maybe 5 minutes - compare that to a big paint sprayer!)
- Has a pressure guage and adjustment at the gun. This is important because the pressure at the compressor may be different than the pressure at the end of the hose.
- You get two useful tip sizes
