    Has anyone used one of these I have just got one (no idea why) I ran some water through it, very noisy but seems to blast it out.
    I was wandering what its good for.

    Wasn't thinking of spraying the car, wheels maybe.
    I still have a good compressor, Infra Red and devillbis set up should the urge take me.

    Back when Pontius was a pilot I used a similar device to re-spray my £40 Mini. It actually did quite a good job and produced a really authentic looking BMC orange peel effect.

    You will probably get a smoother finish using a standard garden hosepipe with no attachment on the end.

    It's a 'buzz gun'.
    As stated above, ideal for water based painting of fences and houses, although with houses the paint needs to be so watered down, it'll take a good few coats to cover well.
    Noisy and messy but quick.

    Well gave it a go and suprisingly good, you have to get the vicosity right but I wacked some gloss paint on a house door pretty good.
    I don't think Devillbis will be worried but could have its uses.
    Very noisy.

    Suprisingly cleaning is very very easy, it has its uses but not for high quality finishes.

    I used one to spray below a 4 x 4 I owned and it did a good job. Good for spray cleaning parts or even engine bays with degreaser. Or has beef said shed fences etc.
