Cheap guns , Do you feel lucky ?????
My painter called me over to show me his new guns he was saying they looked just like my Satas ,he got three guns for less than 100.00 ,1 for paint,1 for primer and 1 small jamb gun when I asked how it sprayed he said great and we went in the booth where I watched while he sprayed the second coat of clear ,the car looked darned good ,really good....As he got about 2/3 of the hood done the fan knob fell off the gun hit the hood and rolled all the way down the hood through the fresh clear...He mouth dropped open ,his eyes got real big and he just stood there like he couldnt believe what he just saw...Then I realized I was doing the same thing ,we looked at each other for a second and started laughing our as'ses off.
Its great to start the day with a good laugh...
Later that day the painter came over and said come here and see what these guns work great on...when I walked over he had them stuffed under the rear wheel to keep the car from rolling back,we laughed our as,ses off again ...The moral of the story : when you start thinking about buying a cheap gun ask yourself one question: DO YA FEEL LUCKY ?????? Well do ya???
I love that story it still makes me laugh....thers a little more to a gun then a good enough pattern wierd stuff happens,hoses bust ,bulb filters can break off the gun ,cup caps get loose and come off pouring paint on roofs,knobs fall off,so figure on spending at least 200.00 for a good gun maybe a Devilbis or something ,a lot of guys like them...I'm about the cheapest SOB on the planet but I wont skimp on a paint gun...
