    hvlp gun?

    would the porter cable hvlp gun work on a turbine machine the fittuns are completly differnt. would the air be the same in each. the gun that came with the turbine has a large fiting and was designed for it, the porter cable gun or any gravity feed hvlp gun normally has much smaller fittings??designed for compressors?

    I have been told by the experts that No it will not the air passage chambers in the guns are very different. You will need a gun that is designed for uses with a turbine. It does not have to be the same brand as the turbine.
    Hope this helps answer you question.

    How did you like it down here. I was up in your neck of the woods the end of July (Allegan) that is some beautiful country up there.

    Are you coming for vacation? We may have to meet up somewhere for lunch ( Id say for a beer but I laid off that stuff 20 years ago.
