Randy, the manufactures DID NOT want to make HVLP guns, BELIEVE ME! They lost their butts on the first ones. They HAD TO BY LAW make them for the first VOC regulated areas (mostly in California, but a few counties elsewhere). The rest of the country got these guns when they finally had a friggin clue on how to make them! The first ones were ABSOLUTE JUNK they cost $400.00 or so dollars when a JGA502 was $150.00, no the paint gun companies did not "create a market" they were FORCED to fill the market created by the US Governments "Clear air act" of 1990.Randy Ferguson said:Hey Guys,
Here's the cold, hard facts!!
How smart is your paint???
Does it KNOW what it's being sprayed through???
Think about it!!!!!!!!!
Who do you think started claiming that the paint would do better being sprayed by a different type of gun?????
Is it possible that the spray gun manufacturers sales were dropping off, so they had to come up with a new way to sell equipment??
If I was practiced up with my old "fire hose" Binks 7, I guarantee I could put on just as nice a job with it as I can with an HVLP, and perhaps even better!
Anyone who tells you you HAVE to use HVLP equipment to spray urethane, or any other type paint is an absolute friggin' moron!!
Ya gotta think for yourself!!!
