This is the perfect choice of spray paint station for both the amateur and professional alike, as it will spray a host of different viscosity fluids including varnishes, lacquers, polyurethanes and latex paints. The 700 watt HVLP motor allows for a high volume of fluid to be sprayed at a low pressure, causing up to 90% less overspray compared to a standard spray system. As less fluid is consumed material costs are reduced and there is less impact on your workshop, garage or garden surroundings. The low pressure means that the operator has improved spray pattern control resulting in a finer finish to the workpiece.
I had a large number of drawers to varnish and wanted a good smooth finish. I purchased this based on the two existing reviews of the system. I am very pleased with the results. You do have to practice if you're not experienced with spraying (I wasn't) to avoid runs. Getting the viscosity right is important and took some time so I mix plenty and store any excess. I've now used it with water-based varnish and eggshell and the results are really good. Tried it with Zinsser 123 and it was a fail, might be that the viscosity was too thin so I hand-applied this and then sprayed - good result again. For the price its an excellent system.
I recommend trying the gun out on an 8 x 4 sheet to understand the spray pattern choices, the distance that you need to be away from the subject and speed at which you need to move the gun. It took me 30 to 40 minutes to achieve a really fine finish and now I spray confidently on a weekly basis. Far better result than by using a brush - no hair lines - consistent finish - no blobs. Just make sure you clean the gun and nozzle down afterwards.

I had been told by a cabinet maker friend of the benefits of HVLP spraying compared to conventional compressor spraying. I couldn't justify the Fuji HVLP so I thought I would try this unit. Having never used a spray gun before I was slightly wary of over spraying and leaving a high gloss finish. Fear not the result I achieved was superb. Because the polyurethane was sprayed under low pressure I could spray one coat, let it dry and then see the finish. I could then add a further coat to get the finish to my choice. I have been conventional in the past and only used bristle or foam brushes, but I would not go back now. Even in the corners of the cabinet there was no build up. Excellent choice.
