I am thinking about buying a paint/sprayer of some sort.. nothing too elaborate...just something to get the job done that isn't high maintenance to care for... compact, easy to store... I won't need it to paint a room, just for finishing work... does anyone have any suggestions... in the $100 range???   I saw this infomercial www.paintzoom.com  but I don't know if its a piece of junk or not.  Thanks!

Hi Laura - I think you're on the right track as far as the type of paint sprayer you want. I think I would avoid the company you referenced though. Had a difficult time getting off their website with all the pop ups  and "do you really want to leave?" questions which left no option for a "YES, I want to leave". Comapanies that resort to marketing ploys like that I avoid.

What they are offering is generally referred to as an HVLP sprayer. Excellent finish and minimal cleanup. Really only need to shoot some appropriate solvent through gun and you're done. No air compressor or anything needed. They implement their own air source. Picture a shopvac in reverse. You can get a decent one in the $100 to $150 range, I have an Earlex 3500 I am pleased with. There are better out there; multistage units and such but the really top of the line ones go $700+. The unit I have is available at WoodCraft for $149 now but they do go on sale, I picked mine up for about $110. There are several other good ones out there also.

I use a 50 dollar kobalt sprayer, it hooks up to my compressor but does a good job.  only one problem with it is the tip wears out after about 10 gal. of paint. and it is a process getting a new one.  not saying it is the best if you want to paint alot but it gets the job done for a low cost.
Thank you John and Michael for your replies... I was just told on Ana White's facebook page to try the Graco Spray Station HV2900 and it looks very similar to that Paint Zoom thing... I may just go with that one.... I think its pretty much what I am looking for.  I am not the best finisher ... I don't have the patience for it all.. hopefully this will help me get a better outcome...

Graco is a good quality mfg, they also have a full line of airless sprayers but I don't think you would want to get into those things. They're more for buildings, fences and lawn furniture. Neither require use of a compressor.

 

If you don't mind reconditioned equipment try here:

I've bought a couple of sprayers from them and they are decent to deal with.

Oh Sweet... Thank you so much!!!

airless sprayers are good
Hi mike - I didn't mean to imply that airless sprayers are bad, Just that I didn't think they would meet Laura's requirements. Especially the "low maintenance" one.

No problem John, guess I didn't quite understand what she was looking for
I got this one off EBay.  It is the Graco HV one that I mentioned.  I bought it recondiitioned for $59 with free shipping!!!  Thanks to everyone for the advice.  Can't wait to use it!!!
My nephew uses a Kobalt sprayer(got at Lowes) for lacquers and it seems pretty good.For lacquers I use rattle cans.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
