Looks like it was used for contact cement or something. Sure it's clean inside? Should be selling pretty cheap. Missing a pressure gauge -- should be one for fluid and one for air. Normally you would use this with a compressor driven conversion gun.

Although I have several pots, I find myself using a gravity gun with deKups (like 3m pps, but less costly). If I need more than 24 oz, I load up two or more cups (they have stoppers for storage), then switch cups during spraying. With waterbornes, the cups are easily washed out and reused.

Some are only single regulator since you can still control air pressure at the compressor and then fluid at the pot. Dual is better, but it is not necessarily missing parts. As long as you have a pressure feed HVLP gun you can hook it up to that pot.

Unless it is a really good deal, I would look for something a bit cleaner than that one. If it is stainless and the inside is spot less, it could still be just fine though. Inside is what counts (and working regulator).

Thanks very much for the info. Sounds like I might be better passing on it.
