    In my experience, these are a bit overpowered for painting a pinball cabinet (assuming that's what you are planning to do with it). They throw a lot of paint, fast. Worked great on a boat I painted, but I chose not to use it for pinball cabinets because it was too difficult to dial down the amount of spray and still get good results. (Move just a bit too slowly and you'll get a thick coat of paint that'll puddle/run).

    There is a dial that is supposed to control the airflow and another that controls material flow.

    And yes it would be to paint cabinets and may be (if it's OK) to clearcoat playfields.

    I painted my house with one. You might look at http://www.fujispray.com/hvlp-systems/ instead for cabinet/clearcoating. I think FlashInstinct has the Fuji setup.

    I'm seeing good review of this one actually. Might be better for smaller job as well.

    Yeah it's like 1500$. I'm sure it works well.

    Both of the Flexio products state the following, which is not what you want.

    "The FLEXiO Sprayer produces a slightly stippled, roller-like finish..."

    It's a toy. Save your money for a good air compressor.

    Seriously, stop trying to cheap out on the tools (I saw your nailer thread). If you can afford a WH20, you can afford the proper tools

    You are right. Most expensive tools usually works best. This is not what I'm asking here though.

    We got to stop thinking that we always need the very best of everything to take care of our machines as if those where the 8th wonder of the world. People said don't use spray cans but my paint job is freaking sweet and my game looks a thousand times better than before. Seriously, it's freaking staples inside the cabinet. If I ever, one day, ask top money for those (Pin Bot in the case) well may be someone can complain that my staple job is above average but still not perfect.

    May be it's because I sometimes buy inexpensive tools or make other rational decision that I can afford the games.

    Yeah read that, they sound like they want you to think it will give the same finish as a roller which I doubt it does really.

    Thanks for reading through the fine prints though.

    At the end, I thought it was a good upgrade from the spray cans which are hard to manipulate, result varies and become expensive quickly due to amount needed.

    Pin-Bot spray cans:
    6 Primer
    11 Black
    2-3 Red
    2-3 Yellow
    +clear
