Default Taping spindles.

We have 4 flights worth of spindle to spray. Bought a bunch of Frog tape and one of our guys went to town.

Seems to me I could have had a couple guys brush them as fast and cheaper than using all that tape. Nice masking job though.

3 hours per set of stairs including treads. He was also prepping windows so the stirs could have taken less time.

We could have but these people are paying extra for spraying.

I do not know why we waited so long to get this. I love the 395 FP. It took me a couple of minutes to dial it in.

Tear it up CD.

To this point 14 rolls of frog tape have been used. We still have one floor to finish prepping.

This is called an upside down house. Kitchen, dining room, living room are on the top floor, bedrooms a floor down.

All I know is I see a Festool, a nice Graco spray rig, good tape that is well-installed. A hack you are not. Rock on CD!

He will be soooooo disappointed with you. And no sign of nicely prepared food or a place to dine anywhere in sight. You are a hack!

We had the 395 and Titan 700 spraying today. 3 of us, 2 on ceilings 1 on trim.

The 395 is very front heavy then add a 5er, the 700 is much better balanced.

Probably could have saved some money on tape if you used a paper taper.

I recently did a ton of spindles where HO did not want to see any brush strokes. Previous painters left some nastiness. So we sanded, tape and papered, cut and mini rolled with a mohair 3/16. Looked amazing.

The sad part about this is the HO paid extra for this only to have the floor guys get stain on every single piece of trim, on some walls and ceilings. There was no way we were going to cover floors again. Had a talk with the GC and HO and had no choice but to use brushes. So now all trim has light brush marks.
