    Default Eastwood Concours HVLP

    I've been curious about this gun and was looking for any experience or opinions. I like it because it only requires 4cfm@29psi so it should work for smaller home compressors.

    My wife ordered me one for fathers day so I will post an update after running it on a 30 gallon 110v craftmans 6cfm@40psi compressor.

    For the price I would suggest Devilbiss Finishline

    Yeah for the $200 you can get the 3 piece Devilbiss kit but then you would need a $700-1000 compressor to keep up with the cfm requirements. This should be a great gun for the novice with an average compressor.

    Are you planing on spraying completes? Because my concern with spraying a complete with a 30gl compressor is moisture in the lines, I used my Sata's with a 25gl craftsmen and most of those guns require 10-15 cfm's @ 40 psi which translate to nearly 6-10 cfm's @ 29psi which most painter's spray at. To be honest even if your a novice,expert,or whatever I prefer someone buy a quality gun they can rebuild in 5 years if they need to and finding parts for a random manufactured gun may be hard. Go with a reputable gun manufacturer, DeVilbiss, Iwata,Sata, if your looking for inexpensive definately look at DeVilbiss they make some nice equipment for cheap

    I feel stupid not knowing you could spray with a smaller compressor but everything I read was saying 60 gal. or more. To be honest at $200 I almost consider it a throw away after 5 years of use. If I continue painting like I want to in the next few years then I will most likely update my set up to my skill level.

    I do plan on doing completes and your actually on to my next question which is " What oil separater and air filters do you run / recommended for home systems?"



    Eastwood has a couple in the 2-300 range or is something from Harbor freight fine for novice use?

    Could you post of a pic of the water drop? Does it get dragged on the ground or do you only have 15 ft to work with?
