I normally brush or roll but have been given an older Wagner CS8000 HVLP with Wagner gun. Of course I cannot find anything online.

This is a turbine unit right?

I need to paint a bookcase type inside and out made out of 3/4" sanded plywood.

I was given a gallon of paint to use. It's Home Depot ultra Behr paint/primer.

Any tips to get this to come on smooth and semi-gloss? I tried last weekend on MDF and got a very small wrinkle dimple finish. It certainly was not semi-gloss that I thought it would be.

Thin with water or XIM entender? Any special # needle? It came with two but are loose and I don't know the size.

Use the larger of the two needle setups.
May be hard to get it to atomize latex well. Especially a thicker product. May be better off using a mohair roller cover. But give it a shot.
