oneartist Tinkering is worth it. It's the finish that transforms an old barn yard car or a classic piece of furniture into something valuable. Besides, there it is satisfying to bring something broken and beaten back to life.

AutoGear thanks for the information. Please do give feedback; even though we are primarily automotive-based, we're almost always tinkerers and tend to cross over into woodworking to some degree

oneartist I found a number for direct help from IWATA. 1-800-440-0282. They can tell you information in detail. For a forum person, this is a novel approach. One thing I learned is that the SuperNova LS400H (hybrid) is built like a conventional WS400 (non-compliant gun) but the LS400H is compliant. It needs more air than the LS400, as does the WS400. I am impressed that IWATA provides this type of customer service. I also do computer audio recording and I don't know of any hardware or software companies that put this level of expertise on the phone. I ordered a LS400 Silver tip 1.4 from for a very good price. I guess my search is over. I'll give feed back after I use it.

Spray gun selection

I've been reading many entries regarding Iwata spray guns. The USA Forum is closed to new registration. I had an older Iwata LPH400. I used that to spray black one coat Urethane on a grand piano. The gun and lots of tools were stolen. It seems that the LPH400LV is one of the best choices for clear coats and for furniture waterborne. I've also read that the LPH400H is also good for clears and may give more options. After reading many forum post, it seems like the Supernova WS400 Silver 1.4 is a favorite. My compressor delivers 6.2cfm @90psi and I think the WS400 may require more air than that. I'm deciding between the SuperNova LS400 Silver cap 1.4 and the LS400H (Hybrid) Platinum cap 1.4. I've read that the Supernovas are preferred over the LPH400H. I assume that a good automotive gun can also be a good waterborne furniture gun. I plan to spray black auto finishes on pianos as well as an occasional car. Any suggestions are welcome.
