HVLP For Cabinets


Looking for suggestions.

What is the cheapest HVLP I should get for painting cabinets. Will only use maybe once a year.

Most often would use latex. Usually cheap is not what I ask for in tools. But it could only be used every year or two.

But I still mean something that will do a good job. Looks like starting around 600.00 from what little I know about them.

Thanks for suggestions

For latex you'll be in the 1000-1200 for a turbine unit.

Look into one of the new Graco hand helds. For latex it would be my choice.

Pressure cup or pressure pot will work well with latex.

Re: HVLP For Cabinets


I agree ab subbing it out at once a year but hereís my two cents. We sub out paint when we turnkey siding and decking and exterior paint and shutters are included. However we just began manufacturing aluminum Bahama Shutters and I had to learn how to not only fabricate Shutters from raw 24í aluminum stock but to paint aluminum quickly and well. Started with Lowes Kobalt brand Gravity/HVLP kit with S-W Bond plex paint with no success for $70 and my compressor. Stepped up to Graco 360 airless handheld gun and was almost worse. Had to keep squeezing air out of cup bc latex/acrylic blend didnít wanna cooperate and cutting wasnít an option. Opened charge acct with S-W and bought Graco 390 airless Unit w 312 fine tip and read manual 4 times. Yahtzee. Total investment of $729 with $80 fine tip rebate and all my woes have vanished.
With handheld.

With Graco 390. Very worthwhile investment long shelf life and very easy to clean. So much paint saved.

What happens when you walk past raw extrusion and arenít paying attention. 24 stitches and 10 staple lesson learned.
Hope this helps.
