I agree. The hopper isnt as important as the air supply. A compressor that can hold 40 and above psi CONSTANT is not cheap. If you dont have access to a big compressor,, rent one. A gas powered wheelbarrow type and you will be able to spray like the wind blowsGoldblatt Pattern Pistol here:thumbsup:
Bring a couple of compressors
Same here, works great. Stay away from the stupid one at Lowes that has the rubber sleeve that holds the hopper to the gun, used it once and the hopper fell off spilling mud everywhere.What's your expected volume of work? I've been happy with the Wal-Board Texture Pro (I think from HD), but then I only do the occasional wall or ceiling, orange peel or knockdown, to match some existing decor.
