This one kinda burns my butt. I painted everything around here with a wagner airless sprayer, cost me 120 bucks. it uses a quart at a time or very poorly sucks paint out of the can. this works but both ways a re a pain. my other options was more money for a sparayer that sits on a 5 gal bucket and really does work..Ive used those. or a pressureized tank sprayer which also works but these are bulky and expensive. so i'm in lowes, i spot an air gun for cleaning engine parts... it has a suction tube for solvents ect.. it says it sprays paint too. "pish.. its only 20 bucks its a dinky little air gun cant be..." so tonight i took it out to clean some grasy parts... it is USELESS. so on a whim I stuck the tube in a can of old housepaint I was very slowly painting the fences with... now... there is poetry in motion. its quiet.. its clean... it actually works. even the tip adjusts to spray light or heavy. I was so overjoyed at this thing I painted 30 feet of fence and finished the house. now its not a gun to paint a car with, but to lay latex paint down on old wood and fences and yer house (my house anyway, old barn wood) this thing is unbelievably wonderful. to clean it just suck soapy water thu it, no ripping it apart scrubbing all the bits of springs and valves... aint none! I painted a whole house with that noisy messy heavy wagner contraption and there was this cheap 20 buck thing... I looked for a tool like this I was told by evceryone "dont exsist" I did have an air gun with a suction hose but that type didnt work like this... its made differently. I looked and I cant find a link to it anywhere, even on lowes site, but go find part# campbell hausfeld IFT232 in the air tool section... anyone wanna buy a wagner power painter.. cheap? ~~~~ lesson two; as I crawled out from under the other house retrieving the old gas line, I stood up and caught my ear on a jagged piece of tin on the wood stoves chimney support. ya know how you "notch" a pigs ear? this pifs ear has a 1/2 inch notch cut in it. my earlobe to be exact... like you too a razor , stuck the tip in a high peaircing and the pushed... yes... it hurts.. even down my arm I dunno why. I found out too late the chimney was in my way. ~~~~~ what have you found out lately that you found out a bit to late to be really usefull?
