@Ohio painter - I use pre-painted white hinges. Since 99% of the trim paint I use is white, no masking thus required. (If a client wanted different hinges, I would just spray with the white ones and replace them later with the client's preferred type - still easier than masking.)

@ Xtrememtnbiker - My current project is an 1800+ sq ft bungalow ground floor gut/reno + top-up addition. Not a huge house, but not tiny either. All trim and doors (except for the bathrooms, which were brushed/rolled as masking the already-tiled floor would be too much of a hassle) were sprayed in about an hour. With just a plywood subfloor elsewhere in the house, no masking/dropcloths were required - another major timesaver.

Then brush/roll the rest - I've never have a problem with the sheen on trim overspray showing through flat ceiling or wall paint.

Frankly I have no idea how anyone paints trim with a brush. With a sprayer I can paint every door and all trim in an entire house in an hour.

Bet you really have some really fine cut in lines with a sprayer. WTF

So you paint the hinges? Again...WTF

House flipper? Unless you're just dusting with paint, I can't imagine the hinges take the paint well. And there won't really be paint on the trim next to them.

Standard new construction isn't that much different than what you do, but at least they take the doors off. And mask windows.

I helped someone flip 7 houses when I lived in Tacoma 18 months and didn't want to start my own business for such a short stay. Similar quality, similar time frames. 45 day whole house, mostly just me working. We didn't do bad work or hide things, we just rushed through stuff. Basically half the cost of the mid-range work I do now. New owners were always happy. Still better stuff than what's out there.

I sprayed the crown 2 coats today. Looks great! Will roll out the ceilings tomorrow.

The 310 tip is still a little big I feel for crown and base so I may pick up a 208.

That's a FF LP tip, right? At least on a big rig you can really turn down the pressure and not get tails, and paint pretty slow.

what size batteries does it come with?
have you been able to run a battery dead since you are not spraying much?
