Economical, easy to use and easy to clean. Very compact.
I’ve had I this sprayer for a couple of years and use it primarily for shooting clear poly. I love it so much that I recently purchased one for my son who is also a woodworker.

Works as advertised. I spray once every two weeks or so, do I didn't need to sound a fortune on a turbine hvlp unit. This unit fills my needs perfectly. I like the fact that Rockler uses Earlex technology in this sprayer.

Why did I wait so long?
Over all the years I've been told to never use a sprayer for the final finish. Air bubbles, eleven coats, etc. Boy was I sold a bogus bill of goods. Had a small project that would have been a pain to brush the urethane on to, so I thought I would try a sprayer.. What a breeze! There were no flaws in the first coat (the sanding coat), so I felt kinda dumb going over it with the 220, but I did it anyway. The final 4 coats went down so easily and flat, I couldn't believe it, without any other work.

Now I'm sold. And it took less time to clean the gun than it would to wash out the brushes. I have so much time available I'm able to sit down and write a review

Which tip is best for spraying poleurathane?
John C on Apr 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The fine finish needle is the 1.5mm, it should give you better atomization, the 2.5 will also spray urethane, but a much thicker application too. As a cabinetmaker I use the 1.5 for my fine finishing, no matter what the material I am spraying.
will this spray epoxy paint?
Myron K on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It sure will, we sell a lot of these to tub refinishers. Clean the gun out quickly when you're done.
Will it spray latex without thinning?
Jman56 on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will spray any liquid up to and including the viscosity of latex paints and epoxies.
Will it spray shellac?
James F on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Easy. Use the 1.5mm needle.
About ease of cleanup for the Rockler HVLP Finishing Sprayer?
Mike C on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Easy. Take it apart, wash the parts, put it together. Very simple process to follow. I think it takes less time than cleaning brushes and/or rollers. Hands still get wet unless you wear gloves.
why would I need a 1.0 mm needle for the rockler finishing sprayer?
Ricogato on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The smaller opening gives an ultra-fine finish when spraying thin materials, such as lacquers, urethanes and varnishes.
Does enamle paint require thinning prior to spraying?
donmar on Nov 23, 2017
Do you need a special lacquer with this sprayer? Most I've seen say for brushing only.
Ron a on Aug 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The manufacturers have to say brushing only due to state laws. Thin with lacquer thinner as you normally would and it sprays great I've done may doors using that stuff and they come out great.
Has anyone used the Earlex 5500 professional gun with this instead of the plastic one that comes with it?

What is it's decibel rating, noise level?
Dan E on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure of the dB raiting but it wasn't too loud. I sprayed trim in a small bathroom and didn't wear ear protection. It reminds me of my Kenmore vacuum (probably a little louder).
Is there a constant flow of air through the spray tip or does the air flow start and stop with the pull of the trigger?
Greg T on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The air flow is constant
Do I need an air compressor, or is this all I require?
Peter G on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is self contained, so it is all you need
can this sprayer spray water based stains and oil based stains?
JOHN L on May 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Water based, oil based and lacquer based too!
the hvlp I purchased just recently, does it have a viscosity rating for shooting paints, oil and latex?

How do i use it for ceilings?
stinker on May 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You sure can spray ceilings, just turn the pickup tube around so it points towards the back of the cup and start spraying.
Why does hose get hot during spraying??
John C on May 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The longer the motor runs, the more friction generated heat there is. It will top out at about 109F. It has no effect on the system or finishing.
I can always experiment, but if someone already knows, ask. What laytex paint brand and thinning ratio works to refinish furniture in 3-4 coats (first being a primer)?
MattD on May 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've had my sprayer for just a short time so I am still experimenting. But I use Behr and add a small amount of Flotrol. This sprayer does not require a whole lot of thinning for the paint. I painted MDF cabinet doors and did not prime and I got a really smooth finish (Behr paint w/primer).
Where can I find a 2.5mm replacement needle?
Phillip W on Sep 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You will have to call Rockler but they should have a replacement needle that goes with this sprayer. Unfortunately I have not found just the 2.5mm needle on the website.
Gravity feed seems to be more versatile than siphon guns. Will this system be available with a gravity feed gun or will it even work with a gravity fed paint gun?
Gary F on Jul 28, 2017
I have never had a sprayer before, but I have seen where professional painter use them and overspray or air borne particles end up everywhere. I have a small shop (but I imagine no matter how big they all seem small from time to time) and I can't dedicate a space for spraying. Which leads to my question, how much overspray is there with this sprayer? Will I have to cover all my big tools? I can clear a space put down drop clothes, etc. but even with spray cans in my shop it seems that it gets air borne and goes everywhere.
Edward C on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A conventional air compressor set up gives you about 40% over spray, with HVLP it's below 10% and gets better as you get better with the sprayer. You should always have some ventilation and expect some overspray. Common sense stuff, like get your wife's car out of the room, cover tools and washing machine and the next project in progress that you don't want to paint white. Good luck with your projects.
I previously purchased the inexpensive Rockler HVLP-1000. It did not work with unthinned latex, and does not work very well even after significant thinning to get the required viscosity. The spray tended to splatter somewhat, which can be a nice texture, but hard to reproduce. Does the newer Finish Sprayer really work better with unthinned latex? Is there some reason this model will perform better? Should it possible to get a smooth finish, or will it likely be dimpled without thinning or using Floetrol?
George R on Jun 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is a huge difference in power. The old version was getting about 1.5psi the new Rockler Finish Sprayer gives you 3.5psi which will spray un-thinned latex paint. Use the larger needle for spraying un-thinned latex on a wall with a slight roller like texture, to eliminate that texture thin about 5% with water. Use the small needle for "fine" finishing, even with latex, but thin it 10% with water and add Floetrol to help it level. If you're looking for a "mirror" finish, you won't find it with latex paint. Rockler has lots of finishing products that will give you a mirror finish while using this sprayer.
Do you recommend the extra dollars for the cleaning kit or easy enough to clean without?
David K on Jun 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I found that a small cleaning brush came with my unit. The unit is so easy to disassemble and clean that I do not plan to spend the money on the cleaning kit.
Does this cup fit the Rockler HVLP Finishing Sprayer Item #: 56405?
AZCraig on May 19, 2017
Rockler HVLP Finishing Sprayer
Rockler HVLP Finishing Sprayer
Rockler HVLP Replacement Cup
Rockler HVLP Replacement Cup
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the old replacement cups do no fit on the new unit. We are expecting to get replacement cups for the new sprayer in the fall.
In the description it mentions that you do not have to thin latex paint. Yet when I read the on-line instruction booklet, it said latex had to be thinned. What's the correct answer?
Katie D on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have seen a demonstration where they sprayed Behr paint right out of the can so it can be done without thinning. I do however find that I get a better finish when I do thin out the material and put on several thinner coats. The instructions not say that it is require but it does say that it may result in faster spraying, a better finish and less material usage
How can I prevent from orange peel ? I used latex paint and had a significant orange peel... too much paint? too close? I thinned the paint a bit, but I was wondering if thinned it too much ... I really don't know which one I should adjust. Thanks
TomMTL on Apr 21, 2018
I'm looking to spray my poplar doors and drawer fronts so I just recently purchased a Wagner 518080 HVLP sprayer to spray them. I have thinned the Zinsser primer (haven't gotten to paint yet) to what the manufacture recommends (10 oz water per gallon), but yet I cannot get this sprayer to spray right/smoot finish. My question is this, is this made by Wagner (read that it uses wagner filters) or Rockler? Can I use this with on poplar to get a smooth finish if I use the 1.5mm and Sherwin Williams Pro paint?

Thank you
ratcityrain on Aug 4, 2017
Can I keep paint in the sprayer in between coats?
Steve D on Jul 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I did. Only thing is I had to clean off the nozzle tip as the paint had dried on it. However, the paint in the bucket was fine. (Longest I left it was overnight. Can't say what would happen after that.)
Okay to lightly coat sprayer parts with petroleum jelly prior to spraying latex make clean-up easier? Any parts to avoid?
Jane S on Jul 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Haven't used it yet . I would think that question should be answered by the manufacturer.
What angle will the sprayer work at?
toolman on Jun 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The pickup tube in the paint canister can be positioned at any angle, front, back, sides, so it will pick up paint at basically any angle. The degree of angle will dictate how much paint you will be able to draw up which will determine how often you need to refill the paint canister. I painted both overhead and straight down on a floor, the sprayer worked fine and I was able to draw almost all of the paint from the paint canister. Extreme angles didn't seem to cause any sprayer malfunctions. You can also vary the spay pattern from vertical to horizontal to spot which helps if you have to angle the sprayer.
I recently installed a pine T&G wood ceiling at my cabin and now want to finish it with Varathane. Can I use this sprayer to spray the overhead ceiling and how much overspray is there?
NorthernBoy on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is the best easiest to use sprayer I have found. No need to adjust air and material volume. There is very little overspray. Very easy to clean. You can spray overhead by turning the siphon tube to point backwards. I highly recommend this unit. Amazing price but it's all plastic so it will be interesting to see how it holds up.
