What is the best gun for painting? I have heard Sata, Devilbiss, and others. Which has the best reputation or is the best? Thanks!

I was in the same spot as you looking for a good HVLP gun. I found a sata set on Craigslist for a reasonable price. It had 2 sata jet 3000 digitals in it with a couple other sata guns. A primer and small finish gun. These things can put the paint down. I have sprayed with the harbor freight purple gun and devlbiss and a couple old style syphon guns. The sata is they way to go. A little pricey new. You might have luck finding a used setup though. Good luck.

A Wagner Electric. They are about $70 at Walmart. I painted a 100 feet of picket fence with one in 'no time', both sides. A lot cheaper than them other models you listed and you don't need no compresser.

Not an automotive paint gun, may work, sort of, but should not be compared with a gun designed to do the job.

Any of the higher end guns are going to be good guns. As to which one is best, that is kind of dependant on the person spraying. Everybody lays paint on differently, some like a huge pattern,some a narrow pattern,some like 50% overlap when they spray others like about 10% overlap.My opinion is buy the best you can afford and one that fits your hand well and learn to spray with it.Ive used the high end SATA's several times and I dont spray as well with them as I do the Iwata's because they are what I'm used to.

Purchased an iwata lph-100 with little usage on ebay for ~ $75. I have found this gun nice for painting tractor underside with the tilting side cup feed.

The original poster never said what he was painting. What he is painting and the type of material to be used has everything to do with the type of gun to recommend. The Wagner works well on fences.

Like I implied in the other "Paint Gun Thread". A beginner should not spend $400 for a first spray gun to paint his/hers first tractor.

He mentioned Sata and Devilbiss, those are not fence guns. A person can buy an expensive gun for a tractor if he is serious about painting. The one I bought retailed for about $300 ten years ago. If he is only going to paint one tractor you are correct.

I'd like to get into competition pulling or racing. I heard 'Bickel' or 'RJ' are good chassis builders. Could you give me some recommendations?

And then there is this:

Quote:
SATA® spray master™ RP®
Multi-task tool for carpenters and painters
The multi-task tool for carpenters and painters Special system for spraying high viscosity material. Ideal for carpenters coating small surfaces and painters with special application problems.

A complete product line of industrial and woodworking finishing equipment.

DeVilbiss

I'm well aware that you are an experienced painter. Had you asked the same question as the original poster, my answer would have probably been differant.

I know nothing about pulling or racing.
