HVLP, Where to buy?
« on: March 05, 2017, 03:11 PM »
Hi Guys,

I am pretty sure I an going with a Fuji MM4 or MM5 at this time.  Who do you recommend purchasing this from?
This guy gives you some extras and seems to know a lot.

Please forward any advice you have.  I am a novice at HVLP so I would like to have support from wherever I decide to buy.

Thanks,
Trevin

Good choices on sprayers I have the MM4.  Be sure to get the 3M PPS system.  Makes life a little easier and a whole lot faster.  The 6' flexible whip hose is another must.
Go with whatever vendor gives the best deal.  I bought mine from Paint Sprayers Plus

I bought my MM4 from Roger Phelps at Phelps Refinishing.  I phoned hime first to ask some questions, he was extremely personable and helpful!

I bought mine from Paint Sprayers Plus mainly because they were closer to me, so I figured that delivery would be quicker.  It turned out that the parts shipped from a warehouse fulfillment center in Buffalo NY, so it took a week anyway.  That wasn't a problem though, just longer than I had hoped.  I ordered the Fuji unit, gun, extra air caps, needles, replacement check valves, whip hose and filters and everything was perfectly packed and arrived with zero damage.

Another good source is Homestead Finishing Products owned by Jeff Jewitt.  Jeff is an author of several books on finishing, and is very knowledgeable and helpful.

I can recommend hvlpsales and rogerphelps refinishing (same seller). Always good service and prompt responses to email. Quick shipping too.
