HVLP Paint sprayers recommendations?
Have some furniture to paint and eventually will be painting kitchen cabinets.

Anybody has any recommendations or experience with them?

Thanks in advance.

Edit to add info that I do not have big enough air compressor to run one that requires it. So looking for electric one.

Graco is the heavy duty version. Harbor freight makes a knock off that is cheaper, not sure how it works.

I have a wagner that does a good job for smaller stuff.

Second the Wagner. We have two of them, and the wife just ordered a newer version. She paints kitchens as her side hustle. It is the Wagner Spraytech model. She also has the Wagner Home Decor sprayer, and it is a little smaller, but great for detail work like cabinet doors where you don't want any brush marks or roller marks.

When spraying cabinets for example, do you need to mask off the entire kitchen or can you just do a small area around the cabinets? Just trying to get an idea of how much overspray we are talking about

I have the graco 20 volt. Perfect for small jobs. Easy cleanup and you don’t waste a bunch of paint running through a hose.

I'll probably get shite on for this rec, but I was cleaning out some old stuff from my dad's garage recently and came across his PaintZoom set up.

I have a fancy HVLP which is powered by my compressor and it's always a PITA to wheel it out and mess around with long hoses so I decided to give this PaintZoom a go.

It's freaking great. No sputter, no missed areas (provided you clean it properly which *is a must*). It was 80-100 bucks and it plugs in which negates a compressor. Highly recommend.

I recently purchased a Fuji Q5 Platinum turbine system. I havent had the chance to use it yet. We are currently in the process of building a house, and will be refinishing and painting a lot of furniture.

The 5 stage is probably overkill, but it will do everything I want. They make a mini mite 3 stage turbine sprayer that is significantly cheaper and has great reveiws. The advantage of the turbine sprayers is that there is little over spray and less wasted paint. I also have a graco airless that does a good job, but that thing has a ton of over spray.

i have the 120v of this model. it uses the 1 quart disposable paint containers. i have painted several things with it and i was surprised on how good the end product was. make sure to strain your paint so it does not clog up while spraying. masking is a must, the over spray can get out of hand if you don't plan for it.

We use the wider painters tape, the 2.5-3 inch wide stuff, and tape the floor, next to the wall, and then she uses a thick sheet of foamboard/posterboard and lays that down instead of using a dropcloth. The small Graco doesn't have much overspray, and she just puts that down right below or beside what she is spraying and it catches it all. It puts out a really fine mist, and she typically sprays in one direction, side to side, and then comes back up/down on the next pass. She also uses Flotrol mixed in with the paint and it helps the tip not to clog up and gives an even spray.

I have the same kit, excellent for small jobs like doors, cabinets, furniture, etc. I picked up a smaller FFLP tip, way better on over spray now.

Graco is the way to go.

I used a bunch of these over the years...

...because they're cheap and a better option than brushing and rolling on most projects. However, they clog easily and splatter all the time. I threw 2 of them away a couple of months ago and bought this bad boy...


...GAME CHANGER!! If you can justify the cost it's worth it.

ETA Regarding your question about overspray--its minimal and honestly better control than the handheld sprayers. I haven't used it inside yet. You would obviously have to protect some surfaces. How much all depends on your skill level.

I've had both the larger and the small Fugi sprayers.

They're the best I've used.

You won’t regret. I only wish the hopper was a little bigger. But it gets the job done.

Which one? I’m seeing 3 versions on Amazon.

I’m interested in what you think. Probably buy one for small furniture and kitchen cabinets soon.
