I finally bought a paint gun set!

I broke down and bought a paint gun set after reading about what not to buy. So, how did I do? The set is the AF900K and comes with 2 HVLP full size guns (one with a 1000 cc cannister- one with 600 cc), and one touch-up gun (250cc cannister). It say's it's complete. I figure for $110 it's not the top gun set by any stretch, but it should be worth using to practice with and use until I either get good enough to need a better gun, or give up on painting cars. What do you think?


In a while, Chet.

I never used those guns before, but have gotten good results with lower priced guns over the years. Seen they are made by durablock. I think if memory serves me right, there was a thread about them awhile back. Nice to hear you are ready to journey into the world of painting, be prepared for many days of joy and pride as well as days of complete frustration.

Kenseth17, presently I'm nowhere near ready for paint, but I figured that for the price, I couldn't let them sit and not get them. At least I know now that I have what I will need when the time does arrive to delve into thie "black art" you are into.

Keith, see above ^^ ^^ Maybe I'll find a small sample project to test them though....


Don, I bought mine from the local Parts Plus auto parts store. I've always gotten good advice and even better service from them, so that customer - parts house played into the decision to buy as well as the price.


Kevin, you are welcome. I just hope I bought a decent beginner paint set. Also see above...


86078, from what my brother-in-law says about the set, it sounds like I did fairly well on this purchase.


I'll keep you all posted as soon as I use the guns. Stay tuned.


In a while, Chet.

It's always exciting to add a new tool to the collection

A few years back I bought an HVLP gun and buggered up a paint job pretty bad. I was used to a regular devilbliss. Mighta helped to practice on an old hood first.

Just trying to save you some grief.

Have fun with the new guns!

P.

Maybe I'll be ahead of the learning curve then by having not used another gun type. Oh yeah, that "new tool in the garage" smell. My wife caught on real quick...

I got my two gun Devilbiss HVLP set from Eastwood, $99 bucks. They seem to work OK though I have only painted one truck. My Old Man always used a Devilbiss gun for his garage paint jobs so I decided rather than going no name I'd get this set.

I looked everywhere and couldn't find the specs on that gun.
I'm sure you'll be able to get a good job with them but my only
concerne would be what is their air requirements?
As long as you have enough air to power them you'll be fine,
but some of these newer HVLP's are real air hogs, oink oink!
