    first time using a spray gun, hf gun, best gun they offer

    I purchased it about a year ago, when they had a big sale on it.

    It took me a while today until I figured out why I was not getting any spray, but once I got it, I sprayed every piece of outdoor furniture(with water) I own, painted my blacktop about 60 feet worth, painted the side of my garage, and when my wife came outside to order me around, I gave her a little shot of it, told her its paint remover and she flipped out.

    I had to tell her it was only water because I want dinner later.

    I had a very pretty (cupie doll) 5 year old, platinum blonde and very nearsighted (nearsighted has nothing to do with this except she was wearing glasses) patient. I straightened her really crossed eye (also has nothing to do with the story). She got a hold of dad's red enamel spray can paint. You can guess the rest---Yep, right in the face from a very few inches. She did a total job on her beautiful hair. The glasses saved her eyes---they were painted solid red. The parents and child had real fun with the paint in one ear.

    Allen, I thought that would give you a good true story to tell your wife.

    Enjoy,

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    my sophisticated spray booth and aparatus, a 2x8 screwed into an old stool with some pieces bradded to the back of the shelves to hold them upright so I can spray them.
    humidity is still over 85% here, so Im holding off spraying them until tomorrow.

    allen. spray tip... always try to spray things so that you have a horizontal surface rather than vertical one and when you can have it horizontal put the most seen sides horizontal..especially starting out.. runs happen on the vertical walls easier then the horizontal ones..

    ok, a few pieces screwed into the board, just slight adjustments, and Ill lay the cab on its back.

    Its a challenge for me to be able to move on with finishing these things.
    I dont have any room to move around, and my finish room is tiny, so I can only work on a few things at once.
    the side panel for this cabinet takes up my entire work table in the finish room, so I cant work on any doors, I have saw horses holding a few frames and some panels to laminate on the old cabs.

    wish I had a 1400 sq foot shop.

    and theres nothing like that baked on look that I find on commercial cabs, the finish is always pretty perfect.
    I will not achieve that. Ill get it smooth, but wont get that baked/totally consistant finish look.
    It is what it is.

    lookun good allen,, now to make things easier to make more room or save time,, if you could move the pieces to another spot to final dry you could use a pin board to be able to spray both sides of the part. spray bad side first then do the final spray on the good side..they are just scrap with a brads shot threw and you place your parts one them like a nail bed.. the little prick points will not be seen just dont drag thema cross the nail bed allen up and down not across.. works great for alot of smaller parts that can be stacked
