View Full Version : Calling on spray Technicians

Hello all, Well, it's time to order a gun and I need your input to help me out. First of all I'm a light green novice and am looking for an all around gun for base coat and clear coat. I have been feeling strong about the finishline3 with the 1.5mm for base and the 1.3mm for clear. Now, either HVLP, compliant, or conventional is the "foggy" spot, as what lays down the best atomized spray that a green horn can work with? Compressor issues are none for supplied CFM and, spraying will be in a home booth. I plan to use this gun for quite some time, that is until I perfect my talent (or lack of) and feel I can move on to a more expensive line. Give me responces on the likes and dislikes on the FL3 so I can formulate, think about it, and order it from Len. Thanks all who participate. Regards D

Dustin , From reading your questions in my opinion I thinnk the durablock gun would work for you as good as the FL3

Check out the Devilbiss Plus 670 ,it's a gun in between an HVLP and a conventional, sprays really nice and if you shop around you can get it for under $250 and it comes with Three tips 1.2 ,1.3, 1.4.
I meant to say that I'm not the "least" expensive.
There are larger companies that purchase big quantities of whatever and can offer products at lower prices. They just can't offer mush in the way of support or information on the products they sell. This information would also have value that some people consider part of the cost. If you consider the cost of the products without the information or supportthe cost can be much greater.
The Dura-Block guns have been working very well in our shop, I'm becoming a bigger fan of these guns each time I use them. They atomize well, hold a good pattern and come with a cup swivel that allows you to adjust the angle of the cup for extreme angle spraying. It also comes with an inlet pressure gauge and valve.
The Finishline guns have a good track record and can use cup liners when you need to spray at extreme angles.

For the cash the PLUS is hard to beat. A true pro performer and three tips for free. I've got over 25 spray guns (I'm a collector) and if I only could afford to buy one this is it.

I've always been a DeVilbis user, and can't comment on the other brands that Len is selling....but the PLUS is the best gun I have ever used....I've had it for 3 years, and gets used almost daily.
