I am a terrible brush painter and hate every minute of painting so when i refaced all my kitchen with new doors, 40 of them, i decided to spray them. I have no experience either other than cans. I read the instructions thinned the paint a little and practiced once on a scrap piece of wood. They came out ok however my biggest issue is that you cannot see the paint level so as soon as its low you splatter the job with globs of paint, now u have brush them in and hope its flattens out. Why o why did u not put a clear plastic container on it?, I will keep it but i think its an outdoor project painter. Still better than the cost of a contractor.
I recently built a large wall storage unit in my garage. Painting with a brush would have taken far too long. I bought the Wagner Power Painter Plus with Optimus technology. I am new to air-less sprayers, so first tried it out on scrap panels. I soon got the hang of the technique. I did learn that the machine must be kept level, horizontal, otherwise it sucks air as the paint container empties, and this causes spatters and blobs. The finish is excellent; smooth, even and clean, and paint delivery rate surprisingly high for a machine of this size. All in all a great machine for the money.
I bought this product to replace an older version wagner. Where as the first one could easily spray water born paints, This one has not done nearly as good a job. To the point of having to replace all the doors becouse it was just too time consuming to sand all the doors down. Yes I did have high hopes, the first wagner had minimum sanding problems.....I guess this is called updated and improved technology. It cost some $30. +/- dollars more too. It should work (hopefully) on stains and clearcoats.
