Let me know which gun / sprayer you have and if I'm in the area I will pop in and ask as they aren't too far away and in the past they've been very helpful.

It’s a low end machine. Some of the cheaper ones aren’t serviceable. Personally just buy a new gun. I use a HVLP system. And the guns are just under £200 each.

To many of us £200 is a lot of money.

It is indeed. But it means I can get spares easy enough. So less downtime. So you earn more money.

And if you are retired ? Or a keen amateur woodworker ?

Surely it’s the same ? Of course it’s a more expensive outlay
But will last longer. Give you a better finish. More scope for improvement. Cheap machines. Wether it be a spray machine. Or any other tools. It’s a false economy. The £200+ that was spent on the cheap machine. Could have been used against a slightly more durable brand. £400 will buy a trade machine. Even a hobby user or retired user. Will get frustrated when a machine goes down. And spare parts are not readily available. You will still want to complete your project. Buy cheap. Buy twice.

No it isn't. If you are just going to use it for a couple of projects then the concept of buying a more expensive machine makes no sense.

Think we will have to differ on this. Just wait until you are retired and on a fixed income !!!
