http://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverline-763556-High-Pressure-Spray/dp/B000LFWAD4/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=diy&qid=1232447425&sr=8-7

Having a closer look I think I've made a boo boo, this won't work on its own will it? Needs a compresser?

ive tried this before, and the masking tape left a line when i removed it. cover the rest in a big sheet to stop everthing being covered in spray. spray in layers.

Yup, thats just the gun.... needs compressor to work! :oops:

Should I get this instead? I saw the one on the shopping channel and it looked really good. Have got some Amazon vouchers hence why I wanted it from there but if someone knows another way that's quick that would be cool too.

cool, was the line a big problem or is it not really noticable from a distance?

And what do you mean spray in layers? zigzag across the whole wall in a pattern or do you have to do several coats on the same bit?

Line wasnt really noticable from a distance, but I knew it was there and it was annoying!! i did layers to get a nice even finish

Better getting the first gun and a compressor to start out , If you only want to spray your garden fence get the second gun.

i did several this coats, in lines not zig zags, but I guess zigzags would work.

Remember to point nozzle away from you!

Walls in a house.

Like the JML paint sprayer ^.

I'm confused now, what do I need? Is the £45 or whatever one from Amazon good, or am I better off going to b&q?

Thanks for all help.

ah, is that not for normal paint from a diy shop? what's a solvent based paint?
#20


I'm guessing the other Amazon one is no good for what I want then? Does this do the job? I just want to tip paint in and start spraying!

i dont know if anyone else can say, but i have never really heard anyone say good things about them

Can't comment on the particular model you refer to, but the one we bought ended up in the bin within an hour! :p

Did only pay £25 (sale) so it could be a case of 'you get what you pay for'?

Personally I'd hold onto the cash & stick with a roller & a brush.

Good luck & please report back if it proves effective!

Used one of those to spray my basement (sprayed the bumpers on my car with it too :lol:). Really had to water the paint down though. The electric ones are only fit for fences tbh as they spit blobs of paint rather than giving a nice mist. Use a brush :p

So would I ... by the time you have thinned paint down, masked everywhere off, time to clean sprayer thoroughly, the job could have been finished.

Have you ever seen a decorator using one?
#25
Good points everyone, thanks very much for your help. Will stick to roller, maybe for a big job these would be good but I've got quite small rooms to paint.

Will rep later.

Must agree living on a new estate see painters every day decorating complete houses. They all use rollers and brushes.

Would love to! BUT, this isn't even my house, doing an elderly neighbours' house as she can't do it herself.

I always use a thick pile emulsion roller to get the paint on the walls and then go over it again when wet with a short pile emulsion roller to get a really smooth finish.

Preparation is key as are good quality brushes / rollers. These 5 for £1 brushes are useless as you spend half your time picking the brush hairs off your walls / woodwork.

I always wrap brushes used for glossing in airtight clingfilm and store in the fridge for up to 48 hours to save cleaning them all the time.
