Purple Harbor Freight HVLP Guns are on sale.

Hey guys,

Just a heads up, but the purple HB guns are on sale for $39.99. I bought one to see which gun I like best.

The HB gun
http://www.harborfreight.com/high-vo...gun-66222.html




And the Titan (Vapor) gun.

I have an extra set of fenders I'm going to practice on to see which gun I like best.

No problem. I'll post the results and what I think about them. That's a good deal and I thought $40 was a good deal.

I use the stink out of the HF gun. I paint primmer and anything non body panel. I have a Saita Jet for body work but if I did not, I would have no issue painting body work with the HF gun. I use them enough to wear the purple paint off:

Thanks for bringing this back up. I painted the fenders with the HB purple gun. Other than user first time error, which I'm working on fixing the problems, it laid the paint down real nice. I sprayed the paint @ 40-45 psi. The fan, wide open, covers about a 12 inch area. I'll take some picture of the fan tests if I remember to do so.

I used both the purple harbor freight gun and the blue titan gun to spray primer. They both did a great job. Results were very similar. I'm going to try the blue titan gun with some color on some other areas of the car to see how it does. I'll report back.








Not bad for a $35 gun.

And the disposable cups are a godsend. I pick up a couple packs every time I hit HF.

I use the cheaper HF purple gun. They don't come with the air regulator. They put them on sale for less than $15.00. If you are painting a car, just use a brand new one. You don't want to run primer through the same gun as the gun you use to paint. The guns last a few times and you toss them. Once in a while you get a good one that works a while. I put the air pressure around 25 psi with the trigger pulled for base coat and crank the air pressure up to around 40-45 for clear. It puts the metallic base coat on perfect.

94572

I bought the 94572 kit last weekend. It was on sale for 49 then I used one of the 20% off coupons and got it for 39. I plan on using it for primer and underhood work. I hear a lot of guys get good results out of the other "purple" guns - hopefully this one will work well too.

There is a HF close by. The only thing I could see different between the more exspensive purple gun and the cheaper on is the more expensive one uses a little bit fancier knobs on it and a different cup. The draw back on the purple guns is the cup size, they use a 20 oz cup. They use to make a purple gun with a 1.5 tip, now I only see the 1.4 tip. Once you have the air regulator, you can use it on other guns. They sell the air regulator seperate if you want one.

Yea I have the cheaper NON HVLP gun from HF I use it to paint my frames and rear ends and stuff, it works ok, First thing I had to do was toss the POS cup and install my metal one from a old mac econocoat on it, but I was just wonder how the 2 he had listed compared, Especially for the much higher price of the vaper gun.

I had different cups on the purple gun. They don't work any better than the way they sell the gun. I bought another gun in a generic box and the parts interchanged with the purple gun. The operating instructions that came with the generic boxed gun were different and the box said HVLP. The generic boxed HVLP gun cost 5 times what the purple gun cost.
