Any Other Cups Fit an Iwata LPH 400?

Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum, been visiting a lot but never have posted. I was hoping someone can help me - does anyone know of a less expensive paint cup which I could use on an Iwata LPH 400?

Might go with the Mix and Spray but I thought I had seen someone post that an Astro cup fits their Iwata. Plastic or metal OK.

I appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks,

Jeff

Harbor Freight sells a cheap gun for $ 9.99; with coupon in many car magazines. Although not a great cup it will work with the Iwata. The gun looks just like one of my cheap Astro primer guns & all the pieces of the Harbor Freight gun will interchange with the Astro.

Personally I bought this kit, they're cheap and work on my Satas, I would imagine they will work on Iwata also

or you might try this one if your gun has male adapter

Thank you both for the replys.

mitmaks - do you use the disposable cups one shot or do you clean them? my gun does not have a male adapter. Do you think I can just buy a nipple and use that as an adapter?

the plastic one came with male adapter, actually 2 or 3 if I'm correct, different treads. I clean mine as I'm not rich enough to throw away things after one time use lol

no leaks. Also I'd like to point out that they're clear so it's convenient seeing how much paint/clear you have without stopping.
Too bad they don't have 33 oz ones so you could shoot longer without stopping.

That was kind of my thought also. Use the "disposables" except when you want the large capacity - then use the aluminum one.
