You could do a room or two with a brush and roller faster than you could with an airless IMO.
Thanks for the reply.spraygunn said:Hey Tomdiy,
We all love our toys and tools, but the difference between a DIYer and a professional is knowing when and where to use those tools. Only a DIYer would think of using a piece of spray equipment inside an occupied home. I seriously doubt you would EVER find a professional that would consider that approach. I know you probably want to convince your wife that you needed that new airless sprayer, but spraying an interior room in your home is not the place to demonstrate its benefits. You will find many projects around the house that the sprayer will shorten your working time and it will eventually pay for itself, however interior rooms are not one of them. If you have a fence or a garage or a basement, someplace to experiment using that sprayer, then you will see what I am talking about. Learn it’s benefits and it’s drawbacks first before you take that first step toward your first mistake.
I was planning on the Graco XR9 and Chuck at CJ talked me into the Graco 190ES - the 1st level pro model - for about $100 more.FreddyD said:TomD:

Thanks!jarheadoo7 said:spray ceilings, mask around trim, spray trim/base/ doors, spray walls last....if you dare.
or spray trim base/doors first, then ceilings/closets, then walls...if you dare
or spray closets and ceilings then walls and trim last with an HVLP and a precision tip..
Good point. Thanks.tpolk said:needs to back role anyways or touch up will need to be sprayed on, imho
Some latex paint benefit from a splash of Flotrole---Most will spray well right out of the can----dont forget to thin the paint out with japan dry....
