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

Hrm... do the WoodCraft finishing classes provide the turbine setups? If so I might have to sign up for one so I can give it a good testing. You're right on the effeciency though... It takes some serious practice to keep the waste down with a traditional HVLP gun. I've gotten to where I can make quick close passes and keep most of the material on the piece without it being too heavy of pass. The Emtech stuff from Target is only $65/gallon (I say only because I'm used to spending $100+ on automotive finishes) so it's not too pricey and goes quite a long way. I've still gotta try Crystalac though.
