Great tool, the Wax and Grease sprayer.
 
I have been using this neat sprayer for wax and grease remover for a while at work and got so spoiled I had to pick one up for home.

Here in crazy California they forced us to use these instead of pouring the surface cleaner (wax and grease remover) out onto a rag producing VOC. I think it is a feels good does nothing sort of thing but that is beside the point. The darn thing works GREAT, and I am glad they forced me to use it. :) It has a pump on the top to build up pressure to spray the cleaner out. You can adjust the tip to spray a stream or mist or heavy droplets. This thing is WAY better than the metal ones that you have to pressurize with your compressor. You spray on the cleaner then just wipe it off to clean prior to paint. No sloshing it out onto a rag. Just spray and wipe, it really works neat. Plus, you can spray it on irregular shaped items where getting into nooks and crannies with a rag is difficult to impossible sometimes. I just painted some steel rims and it was a great time saver getting down around the lug holes where there was some polish.

If you are a tech, it is a very valuable time saving tool. If you are a home hobbiest it is a valuable garage time tool. Instead of looking around for the rags to use and getting out a gallon of cleaner and what not, it is sitting or hanging right there ready to use any time you need it. It stays pressurized until you let the pressure out by pulling the trigger so you don't have to pump it up every time you use it.

It's available at autobodystore.com for $39.00 http://autobodystore.net/Merchant2/m...egory_Code=PSH

Or if you have to "touch" it you can order it at a NAPA auto parts store (they probably won't have one in stock, tell them it is in the "MS" line) part number A501100MS for about $50.00. http://www.martinsenour-autopaint.co...rtinsenour.htm

And to add to the use described, someone on another forum gave me the GREAT idea to use it when quenching metal while shrinking. I'll go for anything that saves my muscles and that sqeezing the spray bottle is something I can live without.

will it hold up to lacquer thinner?

Might work real good with bourbon,
No one will ever suspect :thumbup:

Great tool Brian, bet it really cuts down on the amount of W&G remover you use. But I'm glad I live in Texas :D .

Milo, you are in the bay area, you havn't been using something like this? The VOC police are going to come and haul you away. :) I have to assume it would hold up to lacquer thinner, it holds up to strong wax and grease cleaners.

Vince, like I said, with change somes improvement sometimes. Lets face it, the HVLP gun has been a nice improvement after we stopped kicking are feet. :)

LOL! I just bought two of these from Big Lots for $3.99ea. These however were made for insecticide and such so I don't know if they would hold up with solvents. I will give it a try though. It makes a great dogie discipline tool if you fill it with water. You don't even have to get out of your chair. You can hit them with a stream from across the room. :)

LOL, I am told the cheap ones won't hold up to the solvents. But you can re-seal them to.

CAUTION !!

I bought one from Graingers about 6 months ago. It was SUPPOSED to be for chemicals such as laquer thinner. I used it, and it WAS awesome. 2 weeks later, the trigger wouldn't pull. Now its junk.

If you use it, empty it out and spray some water or something through it to clean off the seals.

I really liked it too...... :( (It was like $40.00)

We have been using the ones I picture for months without a problem. Now, there isn't any lacquer thinner in them, that may just be too much for them.

I just use the standard squirt bottle for mine but for a large area or complete it would be great. I actually have one I got at HF for keeping the shower/bathtub cleaner in. I have to do the tub cause my wife can't take the fumes and it's SO much quicker. Not sure about the lacquer thinner with the HF one. Not really sure "why" you would be spraying that much lac thinner either.
I'm sure Milo has a reason though. :evil:

Beenaway2long 12-19-2006 11:57 AM

Brian-
I just dug out the receipt. It was Graingers 4YJ23. Like I said, I really liked it. I left the thinner sit in the jug for 2 weeks. Maybe THAT was what killed it. You are right though, they are awesome. I'd just recommend emptying it and at least blowing it dry after the day is done. Mine was $27.45 down the drain. Mine had teflon seals and Viton.

I think I'll give your vendor a try!

I don't use wax and grease removers partly cause of those pesky clipboard BAAQMd (http://www.baaqmd.gov/) coppers, but for thinner I have been useing a Sure Shot sprayer for years at the gun clean station...

I would really like something with a hand pump that could handle harsh thiinner so I was interested...

This is the style I use for the solvent based wax and grease remover. Pressureized with air. I like it

Been thinking about getting one of the plastic manual pump ones for waterborn surface cleaner.

Dogon right they're KOOL Senior! :thumbup:

But, a little warning from my experience.

:spank: Don't leave it in the booth during the bake-cycle! :spank:

Turns out, the bottle doesn't like that!
After it swells, it's kinda hard to put the lid back on. :(
