I used my HVLP sprayer on my last project and it turned out great! I've had it for 4 years and I've been scared to use it. 4 coats with 220 in between and 400 final sand. It looked like it came from a store prefinished. I've never been able to get a finish that great, it's perfectly even and very very smooth. Not only does it look great it took 1/4 of the amount of time.
