    Spray guns

    Anyone know if you can spray wood finish through a spray gun ??

    Its the flat matt wood finish, not lacquer.

    Want to see if it works on the rafters and the underneath of the thatch roofing.

    Sure you can, but you'll have to use a thinner depending on what you're spraying and the conditions you'll be spraying in.

    Sure you can do.

    Do it at least three times if you want a good result and of course you will have to spend some time with the sand paper.

    Between the first layer and the second one, the texture of the material will rise quite much (depending heavily on wich sort of wood). THAT has to be rubbed away with a fine sand paper before you proceed with the next layer (avoid rubbing off all the paint/tarnish/etc).

    Proceed with the second layer. The texture will rise again - be sure of that :-). Rub it down again and apply the third layer. Voila should be a very good result. If you aren't happy with it, repeat the steps above and you'll be satisfied after the fourth layer.

    Ooops forgot this:
    Whatever you treat the wood with, make sure you have thinned it enough out to go through your spray gun (think this was already mentioned).

    Yeh, Nawty we use these http://teakdoor.com/Gallery/displayi...up&cat=0&pos=0 to spray furniture and what not but if you are going to spray over head you will need a spray gun with a separate pressure pot similar this 2.5 Gallon HVLP Pressure Pot Review - Reviews

    happy gunning
