I just sprayed my first waterbased poly yesterday, via air gun with compressor (old format I used to spray cars with, not hvlp).
I was impressed with the results, vs spray can and brushing like I've done prior, and clean up was wonderful. No solvents.
Likewise I obtained info right here last week in the "finishes" section (thanks guys).
Only issue I had was I was fighting temperatures of 45 deg, and went with Minwax fast drying, and it doesn't at that temp (as expected). Not optimum, and a few areas sagged a tad. I had to wet sand and re-coat. 4 coats later...I'm very pleased. What shocked me is how much easier this was over shooting lacquer based automotive work.
Good luck with your project.
