They definitely have about 4 left at the Poole, ringwood Road Warehouse. How about asking if they'll send stock up??
Cheers
Philly :D

i'll give them a ring monday see if they'll be so kind. AFAIK they dont transfer stock between depots for customers.

Sounds a good piece of kit. One question, is the motor continuous rated or can you only run it for a while and then have to let it cool down :?: :?: :?: .

Could not wait for your answer Philly as I was in B&Q at Cardiff Gate today and they have them in stock. I rang the number on the box for technical help and they confirmed that it is a continuous rated motor. Therefore no waiting for it to cool down on a larger job. :lol: Just got to find room in a cupboard to store it when not in use. Thanks for the review.

None in Hereford but friends from Cardiff coming to stay with us last weekend picked one up for me en route at Cardiff Gate B&Q. There were still several in stock.

Thanks for the review, Philly, and the info. on where to find one, Les.

Cheers.

My dad picked one up for me from Warrington (Plenty more he said), I've always wanted a HVLP but could not justify the reddies for a Fuji et al. This seems to fit the bill wonderfully, as I will only be an occasional user.

Thanks for the tip Philly, I will be home in beautiful country to pick it up in 2 weeks time.

Now a question, I am going to make a small knock down spray booth (from notched 4mm ply) with a fan at the back whose output will go out of the window.

Anyone has any feeling for the flow rate I will need ?

And I've seen many people saying the fan should be special/adapted for flammable service? How does one do that?

I have a similar question: Is it advisable to use this gun outdoors? I don't have any internal space to use a spray gun, unless I totally cover the conservatory with dust sheets.

In case this is of help to anyone:
  • Reading B&Q don't have any in stock.
    Farnborough B&Q have at least 1 as of this afternoon (i.e. one on the shelf, but the assistant said they had more).

As I stated before excellent review. Just used it to attack my fence panels 32 down one side of the garden. Ronseal fencelife £4.99 for 6 litres from NoFrills goes straight into the gun with no need to thin, blasts it on no problem with small nozzle.

Keep up the good work.
