Compressed Gas Regulator

Jul 8, 2011

Painting an instrument?

I am likely to be finishing an instrument I constructed from scratch soon, and I am baffled regarding how to handle supplies.

I understand that I’d rather not use any kind of aerosol I wish to finish it by having an air driven spray gun, much like it might take place in a factory.

I am prepared to purchase the spray gun, but I’d rather not pay $100 to rent an aura compressor for 3-4 days. I have also considered purchasing a compressed inert gas canister (ie. nitrogen, argon), however I’d need an costly regulator.

Lastly, I decided to just purchase a compressor, however i don’t believe that ~100 dollars could purchase one big enough to effectively energy a spray gun.

Any ideas? I have to stress that I have to perform the painting/finishing without needing lacquer from spray cans. I want a very good quality, durable finish, that we only think semi-professional equipment can offer.

Rent an HVLP turbine sprayer, they provide a much better finish with less overspray. Might opt for an extremely tough finish like memory or polyester as opposed to the simple to apply and repair but simple to damage lacquer.
