First, I have been painting for a living for 10 years. I have sprayed with everything from a rattle can up to a $4000 pro paint sprayer and everything between. This sprayer says it comes with a nozzle for LATEX paint, so it SHOULD spray latex if you thin it a little (and strain it of course) right? Wrong! I did that and nothing would come out. So I thinned it a little more. And then a little more. Finally I got it to spray (kinda). with very thin paint it still wasn't putting out very much, so I had to hold it close to the wall and go very slow. In about 7 minutes it clogged, and I gave up and got out the roller, which now took 3 coats to cover instead of 2 because I had to thin the paint so much. MIGHT be ok for stain or something really thin

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JackinNH Easy to use and very functional.
I frequently help build sets for a community theater group and talk about a tool that helps speed through the painting process for each set. We are always having to paint and change the colors of walls for a show and this is so easy to load up with the colors we need a quick paint coat and then we can wash up and load the next color. I this basic unit works pretty good for this application.

This basic spray gun would have been perfect for me because of its size. However, I can't use it because it works with a compressor. This should have been mentioned in the description of the product. Otherwise, if you have a compressor and know how to use it, then you could benefit from this product. It's the right size for spray painting furniture and smaller items.

Ok. So it may seem to early writing this review but it just so happened to be. I am a DIYer and do so handy man work. I was working on restoring an old desk that my grandfather had. Ihad it all ready to be restained and varnished. I got this just in time. I took it out of the box the same afternoon UPS dropped it at my door. I sprayed the first coat of stain on. waited a while and sprayed on another coat. the next morning i was amazed at how it looked. sprayed the clear on it . This spay gun is well worth it.
