Can someone please recommend a paint sprayer? I would like to paint some cabinets and the interior of a house. I prefer to order it on Amazon. Also, if there's anything I need to order with it, please let me know. I have a worker that's used sprayers in the past. Thank you..!!

We rent one from Home Depot when we need one.

Paint sprayers there two main types. One air type which uses a air compressor, air dryer in line and the other airless which forces paint at high pressure. It is worth viewing videos on You Tube about paint spraying or painting cabinets.

Check out Graco airless sprayers. They are awesome for painting house exteriors. They can lay paint a bit on too thick on cabinets with the standard tip, but you can buy a lower flow tip to use for the cabinets.

You might want to do a search on this in the Q&A. This question just came about maybe a month ago.

We use the airless Graco from Lowes $300. If they flake out we can take it back to Lowes.

We use them A LOT!

Use a 20Ē extension. We also use a second hose so we donít have to move the rig around. Park it at the corner of the house and do 2 sides. Saves time.

Replace the tip ($45) after every 5 -10 gallons of paint.

MUST keep the insides of the equipment SUPER clean.

Mask the glass with liquid car wax and a small paint pad. Remove within a few hours with a razorblade,with a razorblade.

Learn spraying from Idaho Painter on YouTube, imterior, exterior, cabinets...

I use Graco and have several compressor sprayers for things like laquer and varnish or oil paints (cabinets, cars, etc.)

I don't replace tips as often as Brad. Probably more like every 100 gal. You will start getting globs or weird patterns, then it's time to replace. Like I think I've replaced maybe three tips in 15 years... LOL Brad probably paints a lot more than I do.

The trick as Brad says is keeping the sprayer clean. As I've gotten older I've avoided the Graco preferring my quart or pint sprayers for easier cleanup. You need either someplace where you can drain the lines - NOT into your house drains, or into the dirt (the EPA will murder you). Here we have to drain all the old water and paint into 5 gal buckets, then set them in our fenced storage and let the water evaporate, then we scrape the dried crud into the trash. At least I found a use for the zillion old buckets I have. :)

I have a compressor sprayer that feeds latex paint - most oil sprayers won't do latex. Not good for a house, but good for things like garages.

With some paint sprayers you have to thin the mix and run your paint through a filter sock to remove any tiny particles that will clog the spray nozzle. --47.156.xx.xx

If you decide on a Graco you can get rebuilt ones from Gleem paint and they carry extra parts too.

Yeah, I have a suggestion. Don't spray paint. Get some good expensive rollers. If you can't physically do it, find a handyman. Spray is a mess. The sprayer clogs and has to be cleaned with chemicals that can kill you. You will be inhaling bad chemicals. It sags since the spray is not foolproof. I painted cabinets that were painted with enamel, by getting the same color mixed in a cabinet type paint, I forget the name. I got an expensive brush so the hairs did not pull out and gave them a very light coat in same color.
