touch up gun

Any suggestions from you pros about a good touch up HVLP gun. Will be using it for motorcycle paint and graphics and auto graphics like flames etc. Also what tip sizes should I have for it. Using mostly HOK paint. Thanks, Ray, Denver Co.

Any of the high dollar top name guns like Sata, Iwata, or Finex are excellent guns. The Harbor Freight HVLP touch up gun will suprise you though.

That little purple HVLP touch up is a good gun for the $$$.
I have a Finex myself and it's a good gun. Only thing is that they had some manufacturing QC and I went thru 2 before I got one that wouldn't leak air around the trigger packing,So IF you get one be SURE you get it locally so IF you have a problem you can easily return it for another one.
Might check out the new 3M line. I was checking one out Yesterday and they appear to be nice pieces.

I hate to sound like an advertisement because I've said this before.
But if you want a low cost gun with good quality look at the
"Astro" brand guns. They are import copies that cost just several dollars
more than the Harbor freight ones, but they're twice the quality.
I got a mini HVLP and it's hard to believe it's not an expensive gun.
I have 3 different guns by them, they're all top notch.
Just get online and search for "Astro Spray Gun"
There's lot's of companies that sell them.
Sometimes they're on Ebay, but they go fast.
(And no, I'm not affiliated with them what so ever)

best touchup gun on the market right now, imo is the iwata lph50. i have tried quite a few touchup guns and this one takes the cake. best atomazation, nice even fan. cup is side mount and rotates so you can spray upside down. also useful if you are using a few different colors when doing graphics....you can get multiple cups with a quick release so you can switch colors almost instantly.

I agree Jim.
If you want a great gun and $$$ is no big deal, The Iwatta is a great gun.
