Be it me, or someone who has never touched a piece of sand paper in their life, often those odds are the same in the end.

I am all for doing anything you want to dive into this incredible hobby or industry. I have spent a ton of my own time writing articles and answering questions because I REALLY want to help those who are just dabbling in this work to do better, to demystify, to help in anyway to get some guy who has never done it to do it and be proud. I am all for that, in a big way. But I also have to do my warnings so as those same people don't bite off their tongue in the process.

This is just one of those warnings. That is all I will say on the subject.

same here,just not with rattle cans if you cant afford the proper equipment even entry level ,starting with the compressor then dont start I've been there and see that stuff on the road everyday ....BUT that IS how I started out ...I couldnt afford a compressor at 14 so I built one ...something else I knew nothing about ....Just trying to save a few guys all the heartache of seeing your hard work go to crao because they didnt know any better ...I still build my own compressors and never bought a new one in my 35yrs of doing this work...I made so many mistakes I actually know what I'm doingand can rebuild any compressor even a worm drive....Its not because I'm the original cheepass but I just gotta know how things work....It all comes at a cost ,being like that and theres no reason anybody else needs to go through all that with this computor at your finger tips ...wait till I show you my gun washer I'm building for twenty bucks ...even I'm impressed with how well it works and I'm not even done yet....You gotta have a compressor though ....
