Apparently good things can’t last forever. Last fall I blogged about how I had finally bought a paint sprayer and it was rocking my world. After 1.5 years, it bit the dust for good last week. Since it was my first one, I am trying to gauge whether it was a good investment or not, and I want to share my experience here because most of the reviews of sprayers online are from folks who have used the sprayer once or twice, but not over a length of time with many uses.
Next time around I will definitely take more time in cleaning it after each use because I really do think it cuts down on the overall painting process and I love the finish of a sprayed piece.
While this gun does NOT have the option of multiple spray patterns, the design is pretty simple and I like that – less to clean, and less likely to clog. Also, depending on the pressure setting it is on, it will spray from 1/2″ to 3.5″ and I love the option for that kind of control.
If you’ve used a paint sprayer for several projects, I’d love to hear about what you have and how it has held up over time!
