Anything that sprays lacquer
Response To:
Spray setup? ()

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Any gun that will spray lacquer will spray varnish, oil paint, shellac. I use a DeVilbiss with a #30 cap. There are lots of them used on Ebay. I usually thin varnish before spraying......start about 1 part solvent to 3 of varnish, or 2 to 3 if building a thinner close to the wood finish.

Learn spraying technique by spraying water on cardboard. Easy to see result and it will develop the technique.
