    I’ve have my Minimite 3 for about 4 years now . I mostly use it for spraying
    Waterborne finishes and some tinted lacquers . Twice sine I’ve owned this I shot latex paint with it and both times I’ve been super happy with the outcome. The other day I had to paint an exterior door and used it . Having a quality sprayer sure is worth the money after all the finish is what sets your project apart from all the others .

    That came out looking like silk.. You are right, no matter how good the carpentry if it has a bad finish it looks bad.

    I have the Fuji Q4, which is one turbine larger and part of their “quiet” series. It has been extremely impressive IMO. I’m glad to hear that another member has a Fuji!

    The door looks amazing! What do you use to clean it out when you are done using it? Do you store it dry, I’ve heard some people store their sprayers with diesel fuel in them. Based on your comment I’m guessing it’s not made to spray latex paint?

    Looks to lay down a very nice finish. Nice work.

    You just disassemble and use solvent or soap and water to clean the gun. Mine is stored dry.

    The 3 stage turbines aren’t generally used for latex because it requires a certain amount of thinning to atomize the paint which kind of ruins the paint.

    Thanks guys and yes I love my fuji sprayer . I clean and keep my gun like Jon does . I only spray water based projects with it so clean up is just warm water soap and I store mine dry . The 3 stage isn’t as strong as the 4 and higher systems so I thin latex paints down some .
