Best sprayer for baseboard trim


I am looking at spraying my baseboard trim, so I want to know what the best inexpensive sprayer is that has very little overspray (I want to be able to tape about 12 inches up the wall and on the floor and be able to spray.

It can be airless, aired, I don't care. I have a wagner airless and the damn thing has way too much overspray to be able to able to do baseboard with it.

Thanks!

if it's just one room, i'd just go with a can or two of spraypaint! might still be cheapest/easiest for the whole house too.

You pretty much cannot get away with only masking off 12". Since the sprayer atomizes the paint, even the tiniest air current in the room will end up with paint somewhere other than where you want it.

A quality brush, and a top-quality paint or enamel from a paint store are pretty much the only way to go for DIY trim painting.

I already have the paint and brush (both high quality), unfortunately I have a LOT of trim to paint, so I was really hoping to spray it.

HVLP claims to be the least amount of overspray. Look here www.lemmer.com

HVLP might do it
They are not really for latex though
And if it's an occupied re-paint, you are way better off with a brush

I just did it with a brush. It took about 4 1/2 hours, but it's done (the first coat anyway)
