The guns I see on Ebay are "gravity feed" but you say NOT to buy one of these?

I'm not impressed with Nason paint. Everyone speaks highly of it but the cream colored paint on the Case Tractor faded. Then the floor of the tractor I knew it would get additional wear so I put six coats of paint on it and it wore through before the tractor had 100 hours on it. When I painted that tractor I was going to use Iron Guard paint and the CNH store in my town told me they were out and I would have to wait three months for them to order paint again so I've never used Iron Guard. That's why I went with Nason. Nason you need to use an air supplied respirator to spray that because of the isocyanate hardener. I knew it was dangerous so I sprayed the tractor outdoors with a regular respirator on and held my breath when I was down wind from the paint. After spraying two gallons of it that way I coughed for six months. Never do that again. Thought I could get away with it but was proven wrong.

I use a siphon sprayer. I have several but the last one I bought was Harbor Freight #43760.

In my opinion a gravity feed gun would be alright for spraying a car where you can easily get to every bit of it. On a tractor you end up sometimes almost laying down spraying up at it or inside around an axle where the cup on the top would get in the way. The main benefit of a gravity feed gun would be if you were working with a paint like Nason. The paint is expensive and with a gravity feed gun you can use almost every drop. See with a urethane paint once you put hardener in the paint you have a few hours to use the paint up or throw away what is left over. It would harden up overnight in a sealed container. Because of this you end up really trying to estimate what you are going to use and use it all up every time you mix some. With a siphon sprayer or a HVLP type sprayer you need a couple ounces minimum for it to spray. Working with a paint like Iron Guard it doesn't matter if you have some left over you can just pour it in a clean container and keep it for a couple days and use it again. That's assuming you put hardener in it. Without hardener you could just pour what is left over back in the can. The hardener for enamel is mild enough the paint will keep quite a while, especially in winter.
