I'll bet you my bro' can lay paint better with a H.F. special than most people (other pros' included) can with "The real thing", it all depends on who's using it. If you pay attention to what you are buying, you can get just as good if not better results than the "high dollar" tools. I agree with willy's, those grinders are tough! My bro' preffers an Accu-Spray HVLP over anything else, but can use anything you put in front of him. Don't take me wrong, I agree with quality tools (most of the time) but let's face it, those "cheap tools" are just spin-offs of the "real thing". I guarantee, if you look at what you buy first(and you know what to look for), you won't get screwed.

I own a couple of cheap($129 or so) Gravity feed HVLP guns and they work well. Mine is a devilbiss knockoff that I picked up at a carquest paint store. The guy who sold it to me said that it should work as well as the high dallat guns after I learned to use it. I have learned the hard way that this is true. The first paint job I tryed was acrylic enamel and I just could not figure out how to cut the material flow back and get a good pattern. The car looked terrible and I was so embarrassed since it was my wifes car and I had to be seen in public with it. Since that time I have learned alot more about how to tune the gun and it shoots beautifully since I figured it out. Of course I also have never used a high dallr gun so.....

As for the cheap grinders I am all about that. I have a $20 4.5 inch that has been totally abuse and still runs like a champ.

Thank goodness someone understands about getting quality finishes with quality
sray equipment. <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" />
Hobbyist may not be professionals BUT I know most of them want or should strive for quality finishes reguardless of what type of refinish material is used. Experience does matter and so does quality of the sray equipment that is used. It seems most Hotrodders always wants the nice things for the automobile so why not try to achieve that with the finish by starting with a quality spray gun.
