A bit off topic from wood working, but I know you all probably have some good thoughts on my dilemma:
I am going to paint the exterior of my house. I was going to buy a Wagner airless sprayer (stationary reservoir unit, not the totally hand held type). The I got to thinking about using that money and adding a bit more to the pot and buying a large air compressor and spraying the house with a conventional spray gun. The upshot would be having the big air compressor into the future and not the airless sprayer which I wont use much after the project is over.
Any thoughts on this? Can I spray latex exterior paint with the conventional sprayer (thinned down, I suspect)?
