Knock off's have a place in life but after using the REAL DEAL,

It's worth EVERY penny paid.
Bro if you dont mind me asking how much were you able to pick up one of the real deals ( Iwata) for??? I have looked on the net a time or two for Sata's, Iwata etc...

Spraygun world does not sell Iwata, Spray gun depot does but their prices are inflated IMO... I have never asked Baker when I was on the phone with them... Maybe I will check into that for everyone

Think it has something to do with the so called "advertising" SPI get's here. Which is not previlent,just word of mouth from members using it IMO.
Besides, The FREE information and ADVICE Barry hands out is worth WAY more than whatever ad expense cost here would be.

Matt, SEE the Iwata thread on the main page.

Most are paying 350-365.00. You can get either 1.4 or 1.3 with alum. cup.
The gun reg. is extra but anyone's will work. I have a DeVillbliss on mine as he would have to order Iwata's and I didn't want to wait.
Cool thing is that you only have to change the cap not the whole set for going 1.3-1.4.

What brand roller do you use paint tech and do you like the short nap rollers?
Instead of saying everyone else is a hack painter, why don't you post up some pictures of your work chicken****. Wait you probably never really did paint a car in your life. Don't try to talk the talk, if you can't walk the walk. All the other painters on here could most likely do a better job with a cheapy clearance gun then you could using the best available. But everyone on here already knows that.

First off,
I NEVER said it was crap,your words NOT mine. I have several knock off's and they do a GOOD job when in the hands of a REAL painter.
I had the opportunity to get MY Iwata worked into a paint job and got it for a couple day's work on a tailgate. Otherwise,I'd still be wanting one.

So, F-Stick, LET'S SEE YOUR WORK.

Simple around here,

SHOW OR GO.........

Sata was King of the hill around this area for many years, now Iwata seems to be taking over, I visit many (87) shops and see them sprouting up all over the place. I bought one the day after trying out a demo. So Paint Tech where are those pictures?

i just spend close to a grand on iwata's. i plan to sleep with them for the first week i bought them for the same reason i bought a jga or binks #7 years ago. i wanted the best i could get. they are tools of my trade. i doubt i'd put that kind of money in a gun i only used once or twice a year. theres so many knock offs out there that are'nt any good that we need some feedback from someone on them.
you cant please everone barry so please yourself. i doubt helping someone get a gun will tilt the universe

I Dont know if this discussion has anything to do with it, but I have noticed since this discussion has began the copy of the iwata w400 at tuul shed on ebay has really shot up in price with the starting bids

Yea, and we don't have any reports yet as to whether it is any good.

Its great, it pretty much does the painting for you. Just kiddin. I am hoping I get mine later this week so I can try it out. If you see a picture of a gun in a bunch of pieces, then it didn't work well. I am waiting for a review from blackls.

I found this thread while shopping for a paint gun. I'm getting close to being ready to spray epoxy primer on my 34 Plymouth 4 door sedan. I've never touched a paint gun before, but have been reading everything I can find about rust removal, metal finishing, epoxy priming, and working filler.

Can someone help a newbie filter out all the extra info here and make a recommendation for a primer gun? After the body is smooth, I will have a pro do the bc/cc/buff, just trying to save money on labor from the countless hours of prep. Due to time constraints (new baby), the plan is to prime one section at a time such as the body shell, then the fenders, then doors. Then I will work the filler on one piece at a time and respray so I don't get overwhelmed.

Which gun should I buy for this process?
Keep those reviews coming.
Thanks!

ps, the exclamation point on 'thanks' holds no hidden meaning

Go to Harbor Freight and either buy a cheap suction conventional gun, or an inexpensive HVLP gun. The HF HVLP gun is about $39 on sale and you can get a 2.2mm tip for it. It comes with a 1.4mm tip which can be a problem spraying primers.
