I just noticed that the Iwata W400 knockoff is not an HVLP. It is just a gravity feed conventional gun. I'm glad I was outbid on that one .

I think?? it is an hvlp?

I used about 34lbs at gun, when I tried it for clear.

If we get Bondo King off the couch and spraying he can let us know.
I just don't understand how a smashed collor bone can stop you from something as fun as painting?

Well, I if a little thing like a Hurricane would scare you off your vacation, A broke collar bone could be a major excuse not to work.
Some people just look for the slightest excuse.

I finally got to use my new LPH-400 and all I have to say is...

WOW!!!! An AWSOME gun.

The description on the Tull Shed site does not say HVLP for the W400 knockoff like it does for other guns they list. I also found a review of the real Iwata W400 on another site and it also does not say it is an HVLP, just a gravity feed spray gun.

http://www.anest-iwataeu.com/objects/documents/cert/w400r.pdf#search='iwata%20w400'

If you take a look at this website they state that the Iwata LPH-400 is the HVLP version of the Iwata W-400 which is non HVLP.

http://www.airheadairbrush.com/iwata_spray_guns.htm

I put in a bid on another one that specifically says HVLP and it has a 1000cc aluminum cup.

Whats the difference in having the cup on top of the gun versus on the bottom? Advantages/disadvantages?

I'm going to need something to do primer shortly. I won't be doing any BC/CC so it doesn't need to be a hi-end gun. These might be a good alternative...

Cup on the bottom is refered to as a suction gun. A cup on top can either be an HVLP (high volume low pressure) or a conventionl gun. Both the guns with the cup on top are gravity feed guns.

ok, picked up the same touchup gun as bob from the tuul shed. its pictured as the small green one in their ebay store. its a copy of the iwata lph-50. i have a real lph 50 and sprayed with both today to compare. i must say thay the cheapo gun from tuul shed sprays just as nice as the iwata. i even tested it on a panel with some candy and it came out nice and even. not blotchy at all. atomizes great. i paid $20 + $10 shipping and it seems to be worth every penny. i think i spent over $250 on the iwata. granted you cant get parts but even at $30 a pop, it breaks, toss it and get another. i will probably end up getting 3 more or so this way when i need to have a few different colors mixed up i can have it ready in each gun. if you want a cheap touchup gun dont hesitate to pick one up.

Having a few of these for multi colored graphics where you need to keep going back in with the same colors would make life easier for sure.
mrcleanr6, do the parts look like they would interchange with the Iwata you have? Just wondering if the copy was that precise.

I used mine again today without a hiccup, just for spotting in some edges but it worked just great. The only thing I've noticed a problem with is the colored coating applied to the gun body will soften some if exposed to solvent long enough- no big deal to me though as long as it keeps spraying good. I only paid $10.50......I must be cheap because I sure get a smile on my face when I think of what it cost, $10.50 $10.50 $10.50

Dang, I think I payed close to 20 bucks for my cheapy touchup gun a few years ago, and its not even hvlp. I could have two of them for that price.

bob, no the parts wont interchange. the head design is different but the body is very similar and parts like the adjustment knobs look close. its funny you said that about the color. when i opened the box the first thing i thought was that **** isn't going to be on there long!!

From the photo it looks like a side mounted cup. Is that correct?
Can the cup be tilted to different positions so you can spray up, like the underside of the hood, and not dump the paint out of the cup?
