thanks alot for all the info. Thats what I was looking for, someone with an honest opinion on the gun that doesnt stand to make money off of the sale. Looks like I'll be putting an order in for one.

007

Hi i've been using the 007 for about a year now it is a great gun for the hobbyest it sprays as well as my other more expensive guns but is kind of a pain to maintain in a production seting.

More expensive?
How much more expensive than $500 can you get for a spray gun?
Another guy said "3 guns for the price of 1". I don't know of any $1500 spray guns out there.
I have an LPH400 and two digital Sata 3000RPs and none of them cost me $500 and all are a much better investment than a Chinese made gimmicky 3 headed gun.
The Durablock is probably a good gun at $200, but for $500?

Believe it or not Harbor Freight had them awhile back but when I checked the link just now I found they have discontinued them.

less expensive

You get the the equivelnt use that you would get with three complete guns for $500 (I got mine at the nace expo for $399) you can't buy three good guns for any where near $500. My sata 2000 cost almost $500 and that was a promotional price. The 007 is a good gun for the home user you get a 1.0,1.4 and 1.7 plus three cups.
On the other hand it sucks as a production gun too much trouble changing the heads back and forth.

Oops! I'm not sure where my $1500 logic came from.

007 next generation V2

I just found that there is a version 2 now. I called and found out they are and have been back orderd for some time.. Guess V1 has been discontinued but the heads are interchangable with V2. Anyone got a V2? They say it atomizes 30% better than previous versions. If I can get my hands on a 1.4mm or 1.3mm head ill let you guys know how it sprays. Also found out V2 has a limited lifetime warranty. Whatever that means.

Just setting the record straight...

I was recently asked by somebody if I liked the durablock spray gun. Mainly because they had read on this forum that I had liked the gun, and used it all the time.

The reality is, our shop tested the gun a number of years ago. While it did spray well, the removable head unit proved to be cumbersome, and unnecessary. The gun never came close to the atomization of our early LHP Iwata series guns, let alone the newer pre-atomization LV models. Our current guns of choice are all Iwatas, either the LV series of 400's, or the new Super Nova. So, just setting the record straight.

Paint to live, live to paint

Since Craig has awoken this thread, (I forgot all bout it), i reckon i should post more of my experience with this gun aswell, since its been like 4yrs or better.

My main problem was with a full cup of paint or clear, it would **** head to one side if I changed direction abruptly (such as fighting and yelling at the air hose).
This wouldnt be a problem except when the cup goes sideways, so does the head. And when the head ***** sideways, that puts the needle in a bind.
Long story short, once you pull the trigger with the cup cocked, the needle sticks wide open and will not return to closed unless you uncock the head.

Im gonna assume D.B. has addressed this problem, as it became pretty obvious of a concern after so many uses (the nut tightening the head to the gun body dont take much torque).

Its a manageable problem. But a problem nonetheless.

Also, the fancy 'titanium' coated needle tips would seep paint fluid. I just seated them by putting the needle in a drill and running them slowly in the fluid tips. This seated them and solved the problem.

The concept of changing heads sounds neat. But I almost never do. But probably cause I have too many other guns the way it is.

When im painting and want the best transfer efficiency for what ever reason, I pull out the 007.
When i want slick as glass atomizing, I pull out the Iwatas.
