Have seen it done, but to me it's untidy. You can't beat the nice neat lines of a box!

Re: Graco Mark Iv Level 5 Finisher


By using the boxes, you are only putting on the required amount of material. It is both quick and neat. If your spray plant is a heavy duty one, like a MK IV, V or X or the petrol powered G Max 5900 or 7900 then I'd consider getting the Apla-Tech Continuous Flow System tools and run them from it. Get the boxes rather than the flat coaters though, as the finish is better. Watch the videos at www.apla-tech.com You can then spray your final coat for the level 5 finish.

You do see second hand stuff on Ebay occasionaly which sells for a fraction of the cost new.

Harris, if you poke around here and on drywalltalk.com you will find that guys customize their boxes to run off a mark 4 or 5, you need to still get the handle from apla tech. I can't afford the cost of the pricey sprayer, so it's trips back and forth to the pump for me.
