    • https://www.amazon.com/REXBETI-Replacement-1000ml-Container-REX043/dp/B07QDRFC2M/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=REX043&qid=1586521870&sr=8-1 Here is an updated link for that item number. FYI Just helping with the link I have no opinion good or bad on the product in the link.
    • A while back I picked up some Enduro Var from General Finishes. I used it on a number of projects and liked it. However, it does not add the rich amber color that an oil-based finish does. The directions say it should only be used over water stains, dye stains and raw wood. I tried it once on an experimental project for myself over an oil based stain, giving the stain seven days to cure. I’m about three quarters of the year in and everything seems to be holding up. The project I’m working on now is with walnut and I don’t want to use a stain, but don’t want to go straight Enduro Var because when I’ve used it on walnut in the past it fails to produce that deep warm brown you get with oil. So with that brief history, I wonder if I might get away with using linseed oil first, let it cure for an extended period, and then try the Enduro Var. Does anybody have experience over time with this strategy or something similar? The project is big, and I don’t want to screw it up. Thanks guys, Dave
    • Thanks anyway.. Maybe you could give your thoughts on the new thread I started.  
    • I have read several threads on this and other forums on HVLP as well as hundreds of reviews on dozens of sites. I talked to a Fuji rep for about 20 minutes and he says the setup I am thinking of getting will work fine. I still wanted to ask opinions here about it. I am 99% convinced to buy a Fuji 5 stage and run a 10 quart pressure pot to feed material instead of the supplied cup on a T70 gun. My son and I will be spraying lacquer based clear coat and paint on cabinet parts and doors. (We finish the cab parts before assembly.) We will have a dedicated paint room with good exhaust system to handle fumes. To a point, I am more concerned with a good finish than speed. Also in my research, I have seen mentioned a few times that the heat from the turbines can affect (dry out?) the material being sprayed as well as shorten turbine life. I have never read anything like this, but i thought of using an air conditioner to directly feed cool air to the turbine in summer, and use filtered, outside air in winter. Any thoughts on my ideas?
