Great touch up spray gun
Posted by plasticjunkie on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 11:28 PM

Some years back Harbor Freight had a small touch up sprayer on sale for $7 so I grabbed one but never had the opportunity to use it till yesterday. I used it to spray Behr latex paint and was pleasantly surprised how well the small spray gun performed. It’s still available and I highly recommend it.

I have a Sata mini jet that is very close to it.  Used to use it for spot repairs on motothomes when I was painting those.

Would be the go to over a regular AB on a huge model in a single color, or a small job on a 1:1 project.

The good news is that it worked; the bad news is that it's from Harbor Freight, thus Chinese , and only God knows how well or how long it will continue to work. I buy things from Harbor Freight, but I consider them expendable right from the start. Most of their stuff is stolen technology, built with substandard materials and lacking precision. They are good for the short term, but don't count on any sort of longevity.

"Why do I do this? Because the money's good, the scenery changes and they let me use explosives, okay?"

Yes they are ok for light casual work but not for daily commercial use. My son in-law is a welder by trade and the shop he works at made the mistake of buying a HF angle grinder that went kaput after 3-4 days work. They ended up getting a DeWalt heavy duty one.

I have several HF tools I have been casually using for several years now and I’m very surprised they have lasted this long.

Hmmmm;

    I have Harbor Freight tools I bought many years ago. They still work fine and do exactly what they were intended to do. But, Here's the hitch. I am a clean freak about my tools, just like my guns, they get fully disassembled and cleaned after use. They are then returned to their cases or boxes ( If they had any) and they're good to go the next time.

      My Primary compressor that I just replaced had almost eighteen years use on it. It started running hot. So it was replacement time. The Bearings were going bad for sure. When I broke it down to it's internals the crank end bearing fell out in my hand. It was only half as thick as it should have been.

     Maybe it's luck, But I never really have had any bad luck with any bargain brand tools. I have high end tools too. DeVilbiss, Craftsman and of course Many types of others. I have never taken a hammer to a wrench to tighten or loosen anything. I was taught not too, by folks who knew the results. No Snap-On tool has seen abuse. I guess that's why I still got them. Even my odd Cornwell tool goes back to when I first saw them.
