I am looking for a new HVLP spray gun. Since I will probably never paint more that 2-3 more cars ever again, don't need a Sata or Iwata or for that matter, a top of the line Devilbiss. Since I've already tried the HF purple gun with acceptable results and have primered my Brookville project car sucessfully
then have just sold the gun. I have a Devilbiss Finishline 3 using a 1.5 tip (and a 1.8 ?? hose nozzle tip as an alternate) and have tried that and it works fairly well. Now I'm considering a Sharpe 300 with a 1.4 tip for possibly better atomization (DuPont says 1.4 to 1.6 for ChromaBase). The Finishline 3 had a Made in China sticker on it and I'm skeptical that it has good surviveability and availability of parts. It is pretty though. The Sharpe probably is Chinese as well but I did a web search and did find that they have a good service center but didn't find much as far as reviews - which is why I again am turning to the forum. Have any of you used this gun and how satisfied have you been?
