This kit turns any kind of paint you have into spray paint!
The contents include 5 large glass jars, 4 large plastic containers, 4 small plastic containers, 3 spray units, a V-grip, an assortment of extra spray tips and feed straws, and caps for every container.
The instructions inside the box are pretty straightforward, and a thinning guideline is included for various types of paint and varnishes.
I tested it out using a thinned latex primer. I didn't pull the screen off of the feed tube, but it fed without any problems. It took a bit of spraying for the primer to wick up the straw, and it was a little intermittent at first, but once it got going the spray was even and smooth. I found using the V-grip actually helped keep an even flow and made it easier to depress the spray tip the same amount for extended periods of time. The primer went on smooth without any splatters or drips.
There's a fair amount of overspray, but less than I've experienced with standard spray paint cans. If you want a system with virtually no overspray, I'd suggest something a bit higher end, like Preval's airbrush.
Cleanup was a breeze. Just rinse out the container and the feed tube, then reassemble and spray some water or solvent through the sprayer until it comes out clear. If there's left over paint, you can just cap the container and store it for later. I've kept paint in one of these containers for over a month, and just shaking it up is all it takes for it to be ready to use again.
The only downside I can think of is that the vGrip feels a little cheap, and it's hard to get on and off the spray units.
An added bonus is that the containers fit the Preval airbrush perfectly. So now I can store a ton of different paint colors at a time.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Retired297 Vote is still out here
Our vote is still in the wind here, but with straight stains or oil based paints and finish's I had good coverage. The one water based latex paint I tried, we had bad luck getting it to spray and overall we had to work to get it to start drawing up[ the liquid to spray. Once started it did work well and is great for those small spot finishing. The kit it's self had a number of sized bottles to both mix/spray and store the paints or stains to be reused again at a later date. There are also a number of extra spray caps and draw tubes.
My only words of wisdom is to ensure is that you mix at the required ratio and the draw tube is tightly fitted.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jonjon1 Fantastic Product!
I wish I had discovered this spray kit before now! It would have saved me so much time and money on projects over the years. But I am glad I have it now! I can use it on so many different projects. Craft projects, touch up paint projects on my bike, bbq, even those old nicks on the side of the refrigerator!
It's super easy to use. Easy instructions. Easy clean up. And all the components are 100% recyclable once they are cleaned and free from paint, stains etc. It can even be used for spray on tanning! Cake decorating and so many creative uses. Truly an inspired product and design! Let your creativity flow!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Yazsgranny PreVal Value-Pack Kit
The PreVal Value Pak was exactly as the manufacturer described. It was extremely easy to assemble, lightweight and able to spray solvents, paints, fertilizers and cleaners. It is also very easy to clean in between projects. I have found so many uses for it. There are glass jars as well as plastic enclosed. All come with there own lids and the sprayers fit them all. I just could not be happier with this product and I recommend it to anyone with multiple projects or even just one project that you want well done.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Mamajane1234 Didn't work for me
It could have been me or the paint that I used, but I never could get this to work correctly. I thinned the paint several times, changed chargers, changed tubes and never got it to spray consistently. I was using gloss latex and it just kept doing fits and spurts and that was when it wasn't just letting all the pressure out of the can. You really need to use gloves or the sprayer handle because the can get really COLD. Because I want this to work so bad, I'll probably try it again - still have lots of stuff left - with a new small can of paint. After messing with it for about an hour, I finally got out the old brush and did the rest of the boards in about 5 minutes. I'm really disappointed. If I figure it out and/or get help I'll re-visit this review and update it. For now I'm being generous giving it 3 stars but you really do get some neat jars with this package. It does at least clean up easily - I never use anything that can't be cleaned with water.
