The Medway Handyman

Anyone got any experience of these? I've never used one.

Looking at finishing some plywood seating bases with either woodstain or
paint, need a reasonably good finish.

We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
drugs began to take hold. I remember "The Medway Handyman"

I used a Volumair professionally - lovely bit of kit, but they've
disappeared. If you can pick one up, grab it.

I've had an Apollo for years, which is ok, but the plastic gun it came
with is a bit crap. Better guns are available.

HVLP will do fine.
What you can do of course, is get an HVLP kit for normal air supply -
trades off pressure for volume and accomplishes the same.

Aha! I've got a little compressor - 6 litre tank IRC. Got any links?

Not good enough, tbh. When I say trade off, I mean really trade off. You
need a paintshop sized compressor that would be used to run conventional
guns all day long. No point in that expense, if all you want it for is a
small job, so it's worthwhile looking at an Apollo system, or similar.
