Anyways, considering getting a middle end hvlp gun to spay clear on furniture, but my compressor is a small, portable one with 4 cfm @ 40 psi, 6 gal tank.
With a regulator on the gun and the compressor turned up to 120 psi would I even come close to enough air to spray furniture? (Most of what I build/refinish would take 1 to 2 minutes at most to spray).
For your system to operate properly, your compressor should be able to supply at least 1 - 1.5x the pressure/CFM requirement of your gun.
