Paint Spraying Starting Points
« on: April 10, 2018, 05:42 AM »
I'm just at the beginning of my HVLP experience and couldn't find starting points for many finishes. If you email the HVLP or finish manufacturer you'll get good recommendations, but none seem willing to provide their complete list, just one answer at a time. So with this post, I'm starting a list. @Peter Halle agreed to sticky this at the top of the finishing forum to make it easier to find.

My request to all of you is, please reply with the combinations that have been recommended by the manufacturer to you, and whether you found that sufficient, or if you had to modify it. I will compile the answers into the table below.
