So I am your typical average DIY junkie, purchased my first house this past summer and have done more projects than I could count, and plenty more awaiting. I could use some advice on a paint sprayer.
I've never spray painted before other than some random spray can work.
I am considering getting a small sprayer so I can paint (Latex Paint) some wood trim, some louver style doors, interior panel doors, and eventually kitchen cabinets. Probably some other small paint projects will eventually come up too.
The first gun I am considering is the Critter Spray gun. It sounds extremely simple, sprays latex, and I can use the 6 gallon pancake compressor I already have.
Then there is the Wagner Paint Crew Sprayer. This sounds good overall, but I think it may be overkill for what I need it for. Would be ideal when I need to paint a whole room, but I don't have a ton of full rooms to paint anymore.
Lastly is the Earlex HV3000. This gun sounds similar to the first Critter gun, but it has the pump to spray built in and is an overall versatile gun. This gun seems to be adjustable so I could spray a lot more with the adjustable nossle, etc.
I am thinking the Critter gun might be perfect for a DIY like myself. The Wagner is a nice gun, but seems like a better option with larger stuff and to spend a ton of time cleaning the gun for small jobs doesn't sound ideal. The Earlex sounds nice but is 3X the price of the Critter.
Any suggestions on experience, or tips for a new person in spray painting?
