I'm in need of the ability to do some spraying, using automotive paints, but don't particularly want to invest in a compressor that will lie idle for most of the time. Am thus considering airless spray guns. I would be grateful for any experience that can be shared, as to quality, ease of use, etc. Specific recommendations as to brand and model also very helpful. Many thanks.
Regards,
Richard

Years ago the Apollo stuff was well reviewed in articles, but it was noted that progress was slow. Not airless, but those hvlp systems are fairly well priced....

Of course there are some very expensive options, which you won't want to even think about!

But avoiding the cheapest, and googling some of the reviews may help. But just remember the manufacturer reviews tend to make things look far better,/easier than reality.

(Sorry, not really helpful, just thoughts)
