    I still run the Graco 495 High Boy - 9 years old and was serviced last year still going strong. For furniture I use the 7 meter hose and hopper far less wasted material 308/310 FF tips.

    for everything else I run 100ft of hose and 515 for emulsion work. Once that sprayer packs in I will probably go down the Tritech T5 High Boy route

    Lovely job that! Love the papering :thumbsup:

    How come you used Helmi for spraying and Aqua for the woodwork. Do you prefer it to Helmi for brushing!

    I prefer Helmi for furniture. Seems to be very tough after its fully cured hasn't changed ever since I first used in years ago.

    Shutters back on after there prime coat. New hinges as the old ones were 150+ years old they broke whilst removing them. The worst of the panelling was burned off today :spew: 4 hours just for the panels and some skirting! Absolutely hate it but sometimes all the best sanders don’t touch it. Went over it all with the DEOS and 120 on a foam interface then coated with Haftprime ready for filling tomorrow.

    What a great project to get your teeth into.
    Sometimes our trade can seem dull but on jobs like that where you are doing everything from burning off and spraying through to papering, it can give a great sense of pride in a good job well done!:thumbsup:

    Hello @DerekHessett Nice to see you back on PPS pal!

    That is a fantastic project you are sharing here. I bet you have enjoyed it so far.

    If I had those mountains out there looking back at me like that, I'd be gone for a couple of days each week.
