Thanks guys for your response.
I have a large enough compressor for an hvlp gun. I just sometimes need a larger amount of finish that a pot would hold and would sometimes like to use a different gun. Not having to hold it up like a siphon gun requires but upside down sometimes comes in handy.
I did learn one thing, twice, don't use a glass container in the pot
I Didn't want to clean the pot for a small amount. The first time I thought it was a fluke the second time made me a believer
I'll try an hvlp gun on the pot. We'll see
I run an HVLP gun on a 2.5 gallon pot all the time.
Pot, Fuji Q4, Jc-10 compressor.
For small amounts, place the material in a one gallon paint can, place can in pot, place pickup in gallon can, seal, charge, spray. If you don't have a mixing blade in your pot a one quart can is possible.
To filter the product in the pot, cut up bucket strainers/filters into 6" squares, fan it over the pickup screen, hold in place with string or cable/wire tie.
