The "win $250 for giving us your thoughts" thread from a month or so back.

Here is a pic of the airbrush kit. Currently I know nothing about airbrushing. Just bought it solely for touching up sprayed cabinets. The installers that come after me have a habit of damaging the finish when installing the fronts. Saves me from prepping the room again and having to bring out my turbine.

I'd be curious to know how it works with regular house paint. I imagine having to thin it down a boatload. But I also see it filling the gap where I would of in the past use a Prevail. And I swore I'd never use one of those things again! Do the work for ANYONE?

How about a touch-up gun?

I've just picked up a Prevail to try on a project, but it wasn't another case of the triumph of optimism over experience. I'm going to try it with water-soluble aniline dye stain for a furniture project. Since it's basically water, I thought the Prevail might actually handle it.

Last fall I tried one last time with the Prevail. I had a small touch-up on a cabinet door in a kitchen I had just sprayed. I was using water base Satin Impervo and kept thinning till I got to a 50/50 paint and water mixture, and STILL couldn't get it to spray! Ended up pulling the door and re-coating with my AAA offsite.

This is a single quick test of unthinned pro classic through the airbrush sprayed directly on the back of a crap door. You can see slight spatter but you can't feel any texture. An improvement over the prevail cans imo. Cleaning the gun takes longer than my titan elites however.

How long did it take? Do you think you will get faster the more familiar you become with it?

30-45 minutes I think. The microscopic parts take some time to fart with. Should get quicker with practice but definitely not like the militant speed I rip down my cup guns.
