Fuji HVLP with off-brand spray gun?12/16/17
Hey guys, I’ve got a quick question regarding my Fuji HVLP turbine. I’m looking to buy a cheap gun to dedicate to spray primers. The guns I’m looking at, like the cheap ones from Harbor Freight, have a 1/4” male outlet on them. The Fuji hose has what looks like a 3/4” femal quick connect, but I can’t find any specs on-line with information on the Fuji hose. Does anyone know if (a) can I use one of these cheap guns with a Fuji turbine, and (b) what fittings do I need to make the conversion?
Thank you in advance,
I can't say with 100% certainty but id guess it'd be close but I dont think your going to get the volume of air through the 1/4" inlet in a conventional hvlp gun and relying on the turbine to feed the air. The turbine is not a compressor.
I could well be wrong but I'd highly doubt it will work. The fuji turbines are just using a garden hose thread and quick disconnect and fittings to adapt your 1/4 port to GH are available at the hardware.
I'd just bite the bullet on a second gun from fuji.
3-8 psi ain't gonna cut it with a conventional gun.
There are cheap(er) turbine guns available. I've seen them on eBay. I bought a Titan Capspray gun for around $250, but there are cheaper ones than that. $250 isn't exactly cheap, but even at that price the quality is so-so in my book.
I would say no. Those are conversion guns. High pressure in, the HVLP conversion happens in the gun. Do a search on HVLP conversion guns.
The answer is flat no. You need a turbine gun - any turbine gun - to use with your turbine.
