I think anyone that has been around autobody for sometime has used a Binks model 7, or at least heard of them. This gun was often copied by other spray gun manufactures. I still use my Sharpe 450 often, A gun I started using when I was somewhat new to auto painting.

I actually own and have used the Central Pneumatic gun sold by Harbor Freight. It is a great light-duty unit. It is a true HVLP (High-Volume, Low-Pressure) unit. The Wagner is an airless unit, in which the paint is actually pumped through the whole system -- not the same thing at all.

If you're going to paint a small number of things, or only use it infrequently, it's fine. It's not going to give the quality of a paint-booth job in an auto body shop, duh. But for stuff like priming, code coating, chassis and underbody painting, it'll do a fine job and give you the flexibility you want as to choice of coatings, etc.

I haven't tried it for finish coats on exterior bodywork, mainly because I haven't got my project to that stage yet. Besides, my skill level is probably the limiting factor, right now, along with my inability to stop putting on too much paint, too quickly.

By the way, the nozzle size of 0.70 inches is surely a typo. Mine is about the same size as a rattle can's. If we assume they meant .070 inches, then the opening is just under 1.8 mm, a bit more likely.

My suggestion: buy the thing. Good luck -- and please let us all know how things turn out.

Actually, Tp has been making the turbines sprayers for years. Don't know if they changed them over the years or not. I never tryed one, I always had an air compressor and a spray gun.

It eliminates over spray 100% and orange peel about 95%.I have used one and it was pretty cool.It was a little bulky to move the hose around(it was bigger and heavier than a normal air hose).But a quality turbine will save time and money.

Complete spray systems revisited

Does anyone have a success story with either of the Harbor Freight HVLP spray systems? Specifically, models #66297 and #44677. After seeing some very nice results that people have had with the rolled-on Rustoleum method... I was wondering if one of these Harbor Freight systems would work better for me. Okay, now you're saying this guy can't be serious about having a decent paint job. I'm not looking for a show car finish. I just have high hopes that with proper body prep and a DIY paint booth in my garage, I can get a nice paint job for very little money.

Mike

i started out with a paint sprayer just like that in 1961, bought it at a guarantee auto store painted a firewall and rims on my 35 ford coupe about as effective as a spray can, maybe one notch below, but maybe after 50 years it has improved. i would buy a cheap compressor and buy an astro lvlp paint gun.

I have read some reviews on the Harbor Freight website and people were very happy with the performance of the cheaper system. I would probably get the more expensive one, but there are no reviews for it. But I don't know how many were painting entire cars and what their expectations were. I was hoping to hear from someone on a site like Hotrodders giving me confirmation that the paint came out okay.
Thanks for the reply readdirections on the LVLP gun. The price of the compressor is the main issue for me. What are the compressor requirements on the LVLP gun.

Mike
