Default Re: "Popping" the grain with water based finishes...

The compressor will work... buying a turbine system is a great way to go if you don't already have the compressor.

It's like going out and buying a vacuum pump when you have an air compressor. Sure, you could go out and buy a several hundred dollar piece of equipment... or you can buy a $50 Venturi valve and generate the same vacuum with the motor you already have.

I'm not sure what the output of the smaller compressor is but just make sure you can keep at least 30-40psi to the gun at all times. You'll have to figure out where you're comfortable with as far as setting it up.

I need to borrow someones turbine setup and try it sometime... just to experience something different. It's all about finding what works for you though.
