        Yeah, this is for cabinets, doors, trim, larger metal projects, appliance repainting, and etc. I really like wipe on poly for my small stuff, so I'm not sure if I'll use it on smaller scale stuff or not. I can do my small stuff with wipe on in less time than it takes to clean this gun.

        This specific model is overkill for the quantity of work I'll do with it, but I make these over the top crazy purchases from time to time. I've been looking at these for many years, but couldn't justify it for what I do . . . and still can't. I was struggling with a very cheap HVLP system, and decided to just get something much better.

        As expensive as this was, it is all relative as some of the Apollo units are way way up there. I was also looking at some equivalent Apollos, which are very good also, but in the end, a cabinet maker friend suggested this brand a long time ago, so I just followed his direction.

        I definitely wouldn't recommend anyone follow my steps with this tool. Fuji does make more responsible hobby oriented sprayers that are well reviewed also.

          If your press is high pressure hydraulics it could be a JIC fitting. I'm kind of lucky there is a hydraulic place right down the road, I just take the fitting in and the guy says here you go.

              Hey, if you were in my area, how would you go about finding this type of place? It this a Co-op, tractor repair, or some other similar place?

              Thanks to the link to Target Coatings, I'll check them out.

                Look for hydraulic hose assemblies on Google. The place by me is called Joe's truck parts it is actually a junk yard for trucks but they do hydraulic repairs and make hoses to order etc.

                    These guys don't have a location close, but I did find a similar shop within an hour, so looks like I'll be making road trip. Thanks for the advice!

                        That is a nice purchase! If you will be finishing larger projects then this is a must have.
                        Grainger also has hydraulic fittings. post a picture of what you have and what needs to connect with what.

                          Glad Bruce didn’t see that one when he did our cabinets! We paid about $300 for it. It’s a good one just don’t remember the name of it. He used a water based finish followed by a few coats of black bison wax. You can almost see yourself in them.

                            Some NAPA locations make hoses, or can steer you.

                            Too early to leave, too late to call in.
