One of the fastest and most effective ways to apply finish is via HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure). Whether you use a self-contained turbine system like I do, or a more traditional compressor-driven conversion gun, HVLP can turn the cumbersome task of finishing into an absolute pleasure. Do it wrong and it can be a disaster but let’s not go there right now.
Just about any finish can be sprayed, including the thicker-bodied materials like paint, if the unit is powerful enough and the material is properly diluted. So what’s your favorite finish to spray? After you answer the poll, use the comments below to tell us why you like that particular finish, or perhaps why you dislike spraying others. For example, I NEVER spray oil-based finishes. They take too long to dry and have a tendency to run. So I stick to fast-drying finishes when it comes to HVLP. How about you?
