    Perfect thread to bump I guess....

    I've got too many spindles to do on a upcoming job and they are currently stained very dark so I'm looking at a good few coats and I'm dreading the monotony...bout 7 doors a floor too.

    Seeing as this thread is a few years old any recommendations for a sprayer to pick up for such a job?

    Yes, I realise I sound a bit clueless...I do have time to buy something and get some practice in at home on multiple projects so I will have a chance to give it and me a good test before a paid job and it's something I'd like to have in my arsenal going forward.

    Cheers.

    For me a Wagner 3500XVLP would be your best and affordable option here. Use with the fine finish head which you can change to dot pattern for the spindles.
    It's not the best for spraying flush doors as it can leave dry spots which will drive you nuts.
    Perfectly fine for eggbox doors once you get the hang of it.

    I did a large HSL that had 158 spindles and I think I'd of gone round the twist if I'd brushed them.

    Here's few links where you can read up about the use. There's some good tips from other PPS members on this.

    Appreciate it mate:notworthy: - just happens to be the sprayer I spent the evening reading up about...just scouting about for prices..best I've seen so for is £420 which would pay for itself on this job alone.:thumbsup::doff:
