My dream machine, I saw it in action at an SW contractor lunch. I cannot justify the price at the moment, but if I had more cabinets in my future...ceilings in inhabited areas are another good place to use this tool.

What type of product, are you thinking of? Just feeling lost trying to figure out your project.

The air assisted 390 is nice, but not only do you have to figure in the purchase price of the machine, you also have to remeber that the guns ,hoses, and housings are different then a normal airless and are alot more expensive.
I have used one quite a few times and it does cut way down on the amount of product used and the amount of overspray created. I just worry that it will be like the digital controls on the Graco's, something that I never needed, but tends to break and cost me more.

I would just buy an automotive cup gun if I were looking to shoot single stage.

I've had the Finish-Pro 390 since around when they came out. It's just a small airless machine with an external compressor and an air cap on the gun. It works great for shooting trim at lower pressures, but you still end up at around 1000+psi paint pressure. I would never even consider buying one for single stage when you can get a great auto paint gun and air system for a much cheaper price. Invest the money in a quality separator system.
