Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by dood Made it easy to do a better job than my drywall guy...
I've never textured or really finished drywall. I figured that I could do just as good as anybody else. I watched a couple you tube videos, read the instructions and set up a big piece of cardboard in the backyard to practice on. I dialed the compressor to right at 25 PSI and opened the trigger up to the right setting for the type of coverage I wanted (the instructions give you the details). I found that the thickness of the mud and the level of dryness before you actually run the texture knife over it really makes a difference. I ended up when finally coating the laundry room doing a surprisingly fantastic job. This thing made it easy. Very adjustable and easy to work with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Mosguy Great gun
This is a good texture gun. I just used it this weekend to spray an orange peel texture on an attic remodel and the results were excellent.
The multiple adjustments for flow control and trigger pull really let you fine tune your pattern. Control the rest of your pattern through air pressure settings. The higher the air pressure, the finer the texture.
The top of the hopper is covered halfway. This is great for spraying ceilings and keeping compound off of your face, but it does make the underside of that area a little difficult to clean. Just take it outside and hose it out and you will be fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Impala Excellent tool and reasonable price
After weeks of a professional not showing up at my house to texture a basement, i decided to purchase this tool from Home Depot. I am glad I did. This tool was easy to assemble and maneuver during the texture process. I started by doing some test runs on the wall and simply scarping the mud off the wall. I went with a heavy orange peel and then knocked it down. it turned out great, I believe better than the professional that would have charged me hundreds of dollars to do a small job. It took me longer to mix the mud than it did to spray the texture. One must be careful though to get the right consistency of mud throughout the project, otherwise it will come out of the gun to thin or to thick. A good quality air compressor is a must also. Do not use an air compressor without a regulator. You need to regulate the amount pressure going through the gun to achieve great results. If you have any DIY experience this is a project worth doing yourself and not hiring it out. Save some money and then help a buddy out on his project. Great Product Wal-Board.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by perryg114 Did the trick
This thing did the trick. I had about a 3sq ft area that I had used those spray cans on and it just was not cutting it. If you have more than about 1ft sq of area the cans are not the way to go. I will use this one again and probably loan it to a friend or two. I used the medium texture mix with about 30 psi of pressure and the big nozzle to get a pretty heavy texture. It is not the fastest thing in the world but I did not play with higher pressures. I think you could do large areas with it no problem but practice first to get your settings on a piece of scrap dry wall. I wish I had gone this route in the first place a can is $15 each and I wasted 2 cans without good results.
