One of the things I despise is painting. For me, painting is best done with a bottle of red wine, brushes, pallet knives, tubes of oils and canvass.
When faced with anything else that needs painting, I’m prone to procrastination. Unfortunately, I foresee a considerable number of painting related tasks in my future. As I’m also a tight bugger and have philosophical issues with paying someone to do a job I can do if I try, and also so that I might actually achieve some of those tasks and finish them before I’m in my grave, I’m considering getting a spray painting setup. I reason that apart from the initial fun of a new “toy”, which will hopefully get me through the current list of jobs, in the long run such a device will undoubtedly save me time and money with respect to bottom paint, to name just one item.
My question is: Airless or air compressor fed system?
I have access to a compressor. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each one? I honestly know slightly more than nothing about them.
