Devilbiss FinishLine Spray gun opinions wanted

I tried a search but to no avail...so
Since I cannot afford a SATA gun at this time I was thinking of this Devilbiss unit from ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWA:IT. I have had DV siphon units before and they were great. I plan on painting 1-2 vehicles per year. Any opinions?

Second question:I don't plan on using a big desiccant dryer, just to use an inline dryer because of costs. I have a seperator already with an 80 gallon compressor. Any recommendations or any other dryers that won't break the bank?

JR Tech about 8 years ago came out with a copy line of the SATA
German dryers, dryers they sold overseas but not in USA.
One month later JR sold out and the 800 number bought all there dryers. I have 4 with about $150 invested and the one sata goes for $700.
I don't know if they still have any or not but worth a call.

Jeff would know so talk to him as they may not be in computer.
8-5 est.
They were the JR-Chrome dryers. They made about 10 different ones.

Harbor has an air drier for under $300 in the master catalog or online if that interest you.

I use a Sporlan refrigeration liquid line drier inline with my paint set-up right before the regulator. It won't catch a bucket load of water ,but it will clean up the air nicely.
It's a 30 cubic inch capacity/3/8 flair connection and is an "HH" type which has charcoal along with the desicant. The standard drier does not have the charcoal so IF you use one be sure to get the HH series. FWIW. Mike.

opinion on finishline guns

Hey, before you go to e-bay, check Sears. They sell the finishline gravity feed guns there and if your not happy with it its easier to return than dealing with a seller on e-bay. I've been painting cars over 15years, and I have had big money guns and cheap ones, for the money, you can't beat 'um. Get a 1.4 - 1.6 tip for single stage urethane, and clear. If your going to spray 2K primer find a cheap sata copy, home depo, lowes etc.. expect to pay under $175 for the devilbis. It is a good low cost gun !! KEEP ALL REAL CLEAN

As to your concerns to moisture, you can get a cheap inline filter that goes above your regulator, and they are available at most autobody supply shops. the company that makes them is Motorguard, they trap a good amount of contaminants and moisture.

If you are going to a Finishline lll price level gun, consider the Sharpe Finex FX300 as well. I have both and they will both do a good job, but the Sharpe is a bit better. The Devillbiss is Chinese made, the Sharpe may actually be made in the US plus has a better network of repair parts. My only complaint with the Finex is that the paint cup is small - but is very maneuverable

If you can afford it - for sure, go with the Sata or one of their knockoffs.

I'm using a cheapy Harbor Freight air filtration system to knock out most of the water vapor, then it's followed by a Sharpe 707F to do a final air cleaning - all at the end of 50 feet of copper line. Take a look at this thread:
