5th birthday project

Postby Bucks woodshop » 04 Nov 2018, 15:13

Sorry no WIP on this as the deadline was tight to say the least

My design for the dressing table is mine and simple construction using pocket holes which are hidden

Finish is courtesy of peter millard as i spotted his 30 quid HVLP video and it made a huge difference ImageImageImageImageImageImage

That is going to make one 5 year old very happy and feel very grown up! Nice job.

Some great play there!,

I've watched a couple of Peter's videos, he's good and does a good job of the content.

Noice!!!

Lovely finish from such a reasonably priced tool.

I think these "budget" tools get a lot of bad press which I think a lot of which is underserved. Not all of us can afford a £400 Graco airless sprayer and this just shows that you can get a good result from a tool that costs less than 10% of the Graco!

Incidentally I am going to be painting the inside of my workshop in the Spring and was going to buy the Screwfix Erbaurer sprayer but I'm tempted to go for the £30 one you have got. Do you think it would handle the smooth masonry paint? The reviews on Screwfix say theirs can but I see no point in spending another £25 if the £30 one can do it just as well.

I used a performance power or some such named one at a very budget price to spray bitumen emulsion to damproof the walls of my workshop some years back with little problem other than the clean up.
It also sprayed about 40 litres of creosote. Since then It has done some passable normal paint spraying.
These bottom end price units do seem very good VFM

Yes it comes with a viscosity cup and 2 pots so you test the viscosity and it works great

Ive used emulsion varnish and satin wood all water based one thing id say is over spray can be bad but if you cover wvwrything and wear a good mask its all good

One thing id say the blower runs really hot id definately limit the run time and give it a rest every now and again
