Polycrylic

What kind of rig are you spraying the finish with? I used to have a HVLP turbine rig I was using but it was so hard to get in tight places I switched to a Graco mini HVLP that uses filtered air, just not heated like the turbine. I like the poly but lately I have been using the Minwax Spar Polyurethane. More trouble cleaning up being solvent based. I have an island to spray that will be polycrylic to match some other cabinets so I will be switching hoses for it. Beautiful work on the cue cabinet, love the inlay detail.

Hi Wado, I am using a Fuji mini-mite 5 with a 1.3mm spray tip. No thinning of the polycrylic, use at full viscosity. Hope that helps.

Fuji

Looks like a nice rig. I converted my first gun to a pressurized system using a separate can instead of the siphon feed so I could invert the gun but the big air hose caused me lots of grief. I didn't have anything as good as a Fuji, mine was a CH but on flat surfaces it put down a nice finish and the warm air sped up the drying. The Graco started out as a gravity feed HVLP but I hooked it to a two quart pressurized can immediately. It's nice to just clean the tip between coats and not have to worry about breaking down the gun every time. I do dump the pot at night and run either solvent or water through it if I am going to use it the next day. I bet that Fuji does lacquer really well with dry air.

Yes, I really like my Fuji spray. I opted to buy the Fuji with the gravity feed to begin with and now I have a siphon feed gun as well with smaller canisters that come with air right lids for storing top coats. I am about to get the 3M PPS system for ease of clean up and it will also solve your issue if painting upside down as well or any direction. Check it out. 👍🏽

I think I bought the fittings for that 3M system you are speaking of. Does it use liners in the can? I still have the fittings somewhere and never used them. Don't know if that would work for you but you could have them. I never used it.

I can attest to the quality of his art. I was lucky enough to purchase one of his 3D cutting boards earlier this year. Nice guy and very talented artist

Thank you very much! Doesn’t look like you’ve cut on the board yet. Is that a stand it is sitting on? Very nice!
