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

I'm not an expert on the subject either.
My question is how well the Rockler turbine HVLP system works. With true turbine HVLP systems the material transfer efficiency can approach 80% That results in less over spray and less wasted material. The conversion type HVLP's are in the 40%-60% transfer range. Probably not a significant difference unless a lot of material is sprayed often. Some of the finishes are pretty pricey so the turbine unit could pay for itself in a short time.
