DeVilbiss Finishline kit w/ small compressor?

Not sure If we are allowed to post links but I saw this kit at my local NAPA store ($120cdn) and was wondering if I would be ok for my setup. I have a 20gal 7.4CFM@40psi, 5.4@90psi compressor.

I would be painting small things link side skirts (body kit), grills, and perhaps a hood or two. This would be more of a weekend hobby then anything else. Id more then likely shoot acrylic paint as its less of a hassle.

Also, lets say the compressor kicks in while im spraying.. what exactly will happen? will my gun start sputtering? or will I just have to stop and let the compressor fill up?

I heard that there are no rebuild parts are available for this gun. Is this a major thing that I need to worry about? I would only be using it a few times per year. Hopefully these guns are reliable.

Paint anything sizeable with that setup and your compressor will be running continuously. It would prolly work OK for small stuff though. Your compressor (obviously) will cycle, but the pressure won't swing enough to bother you at the gun, as it will be regulated down quite a bit from the tank pressure. If it runs (near) continuously, I'd be worried about condensation getting through into the paint. Invest in a good drier!

Mike look at the spects and you will see it requires 13 cfm @ 30 psi . From your compressor spects it won't supply enough air . Look at the Astro evo


Astro LVLP Spray Gun (CLICK HERE for Options)
Code:APEVO4014-18
Price: $75.00
Quantity in Basket: none

� This gun's patented cap nozzle design and use of lower volume of air finely atomizes paint creating a smooth finish with minimum overspray
� Lower cfm consumption
� Stainless steel needle and fluid tip makes it suitable for water base products
� Decreased overspray creates cost savings up to 20-30%
Specifications:
� Cup capacity: 600ml
� Operation Pressure: 25psi
� Net Weight: 1.02lb / 462g
� Average Air Consumption: 9.6-9.8cfm
� Air Inlet Thread NPT: 1/4"
� Required Compressor: 3hp
� Max. Pattern at 8" Distance: 8.7-9in (220-230mm)
� Air cap output: 10psi

I got the spects here .

I should mention I do have the DeVilbess set your interested in but it does require a lot of air .

Take Care

I noticed the Astro gun you posted does not have an adjustment knob at the bottom while the Devilbiss does.

What's its purpose and should I be looking at a gun with or without it?

Mike that knob is for air control and most just turn it all the way open and never touch it . That being said to me it makes no difference wheather it has it or not.

thats pretty good gun. I use it work very often and actually sprayed my bumper cover with one today. It doesn't take much air, Id probably do coat at a time and let it fill up between coats.
