Turbine Time - 1 Posted: Fri Jul 20, 2018 1:07 am     Views: 22      Rating: Not rated

Let's do something with a 6-stage vacuum motor. I've got some painting in the near future. :-)

It's amazing how little info there is on hvlp turbine units. Makers seem to have optimized guns to whatever stage motor was available at the time. For low powered machines, this has created the opposite universe of reducing/thinning paint before you can see the "normal" coating. Thinning/reducing is not a big deal but some paints do look better without modifiers.

I would prefer a turbine that's slightly overpowered and will allow full control of speed/pressure. That's the direction I'm going.
