Mine is hanging in the garage waiting to be used till I get some work thats worth heading out to the garage and flipping the switch on the compressor. All I've done with mine so far is spray some lacquer thinner through it.

My W400 copy also has a 1.4mm tip. I haven't used it yet because it is not HVLP.

It says hvlp in the auctions for the ebay gun. The real w400 is a complient gun, still maintains a high transfer efficiency. 5 dogs, how was overspray with the gun? The the main reason I wanted something other then my sharpe conventional, the amount of material waste and overspray in the air.

I only painted the bed of my truck, and it was a single stage, hardly any overspray at all, very easy gun to handle in my opinion, plus it kept up with my small compressor

You are correct, the ad does say HVLP, but it is not. My W400 knockoff that I received from the Tuul Shed DOES NOT say HVLP on it, and it DOES NOT have 10 psi max engraved on the air cap like all my other HVLP guns. If you go to the Iwata web site and read the specifics for the W400 it does not mention HVLP, but if you look at the specs for the LPH400 it says it is the HVLP version of the W400.

If I used mine yet, I would give an opinion. The only thing I have gotten to paint lately is a set of wicker patio chairs for my mom, Geez , whats going on here. If I get another car to paint, I'll give mine a test.

Well there is a lot of talk about this but mostly about the ebay one. The gun you see pictured in the begining noone else really owns. After closer inspection I noticed that if it is a replica of the LH 1.4 400 then it must be an OLD replica. Iwata switched over and their very tips on their guns has slits in it to atomize the paint more supposedly. The LH400 would have 4 slits and the W400 would have 3 slits in it. This would be where the needle would be. Take a closer look at the pic posted and one from a REAL Iwata pic. You will notice where the needle is on the Iwata it has a Fat Maltese Cross look to it. Hope that helps

As far as how they test out I have no idea. But for the price it would deffinately be worth checking out.

I bought the lph version from ebay.. it has a wide fan pattern(which alot of cheap guns dont have). i got mine for 28 bucks i cant complain for the price. just to see what it could do i decided to paint an entire deck lid with it.. it has to be dialed in really good for it to spray good. and i use the 3m pps system and for some reason it seams to pressurize and spray funny at times.. im gonna try it with the regular cup on it and see how it does then. im gonna try and clear something else with it now that its dialed in a little better. the deck lid i cleared had orange peel.. im gonna try and eliminate that. the sole purpose of buyin this gun was to compare it with my real iwata and after that i was gonna give it to my brother to play around with. the adjustments knobs are actually smoother on the cheap gun then the real one.. but the real one is just too easy to use.
