    Some questions:
    1- Where are you?
    2- How many instruments do you make?
    3- Professional or hobby?
    4- What will you be spraying? (nitro, poly, shellac, opaque paint colors?)

    Fuji is good (with a turbine)

    Any spray gun needs a decent sized air compressor to work, so factor that in too. min would be 21 gallon

    For a long time I used a DeVilbiss SRi Pro spot repair gun with gravity feed and it did a really nice job but I switched over to a Fuji. It is a Mini Mite 4 with the T75G gravity feed and I really like this one. Sometimes I almost don't think I need to final sand and buff, but I do.

    Right now I have a titan turbine system that I used to spray cabinets and furniture.
    I was hoping to get some thing gravity fed it would be easier to clean I’ll be spraying Water based products

    I suppose you could buy any gravity gun that fits a turbine system- like a Fuji 5175G-T75G
    You need stainless steel gun.

    If your a hobby builder, just get something from Harbour freight for $40 instead of $340-
    One is better off buying more wood and becoming a better builder than being a crap builder with an amazing gun.

    The only difference between a great gun and cheap one is (usually) a bit more sanding due to orange peel. The end result once sanded and buffed is exactly the same.- Same with rattle cans.

    I use a Titan Flexspray fine finish sprayer. It is an HVLP air assisted sprayer with a cup gun which is easy to adjust for different viscosities and easy to clean up. It also is self contained in the hand unit so it does not require a separate compressor, and is used by professional painters.

    I assume that is Tonge in cheek. A crap builder would not even care to post a question here. I've had projects that I would consider crap that will not see the light of day, maybe the fire place. Still they are valuable learning experiences.

    You were referring to yourself, and I am an idiot. Please accept my apology.
