I have an older Harbor Freight HVLP gun with a regulator. I mainly use it for spraying primer. It does not have nearly a fine enough mist or control to spray any base coat/clear coat color.

I would use it for single stage color on something that doesn't need a a super smooth finish. Yes, it lays better than rattle can if the paint is mixed right and the gun settings are right for the temp.

For $10, its absolutely work grabbing and playing with. You need to learn how to adjust it for the setting your spray in. It's not like rattle can that is push button... You also have to disassemble and clean it after every use. or it will be junk really quick. I usually have a small bucket of acetone and various brushes waiting. Its just something else to remember. Clean up with a rattle can is tossing it in a trash can.

But IT would be way better than buying a $150-200 gun to experiment with. but it does make and excellent primer gun.


Is it pulling season yet?

Steve, I came across that photo of Bryan on your family's M earlier this week while searching for a photo for a forum member (via email request). Great picture! Was Bryan just out for a visit when those were taken? It's way too green in the background for either a Spring or Fall plow day...

Happy Friday All!!! I know this has been discussed before only I can't find where I stored the information. Harbor Freight currently has a HVLP paint gun #47016 on sale for $9.99. I'm tired of buying the expensive spray cans and ready to purchase a good reliable HVLP spray gun. Is the Harbor Freight one any good? If not what would be a good one to purchase? TIA and everyone have a SAFE & wonderful day.

Lewis, I'm guessing the cast pulley as that's what's shown on "Adapting Package" spec sheet I posted on Monday. But you bring up an interesting variable.

Would that belt be the one used with the cast pulley on the 70 or with the mechanical PTO setup? (scratch my head)

Harry, I read Craig's post as a statement not a question and thus didn't see it as requiring a response.

I agree that a model 70 with a 2 spindle, 38" mower deck would use a IH-464362-R1 drive belt.

Craig C and Kraig McC - (that's quite a line) - I didn't see a response from Kraig to Craig on the question about the belt. I had just provided the same info below to Daniel Z and was hoping to get the some type of confirmation myself (like from Charlie or Kraig).

Here's in part what I stated:
"according to the CCC parts look-up for the 70 with a 38" 2 blade deck you need Part No. IH-464362-R1 which converts to current Part No. 954-0226 1/2x82". "

(By the way, Charlie doesn't seem to have this belt under his "Belts" tab at CC Specialties but I did find it under the "Mower Blades" tab by scrolling down and down and down).

Brett H. Congratulations with that kind of performance. Would you have a couple of pictures to post?

This little fella followed me home last Sunday. Serial number 285835. He needs some TLC before heading to his new owner. That hole below the 104 is where a PO decided they couldn't adjust the throttle cable the normal way.

Hi all, I have a 1962 original that has been in continuous service mowing an acre yard for 54 seasons now, getting ready for 2017. I did a rough estimate that it might have 3000-3500 hours on it. Wondered how many others may have a similar track record? Best regards, Brett Howland.

If screen width is an issue, can we not have a resolution limit, i.e. 1024 x 768, instead of a file size limit? That's a LOT easier to accomplish when resizing. The image resizer on my Unix box out in the garage makes pictures extremely small in resolution to get them below 100kb.

Setting the camera to take tiny pictures is not a good solution; you can always make them smaller, but never bigger.

Hey Daniel Z - hope it's not to late but I think the FAQ chart has a little discrepancy in identifying the belt you need.

You said you were going to get IH-473462 3/8 81". I believe that's the belt for a 38" 3-spindle deck. You have the 38" 2 blade timed deck and according to the CCC parts look-up for the 70 with a 38" 2 blade deck you need Part No. IH-464362-R1 which converts to current Part No. 954-0226 1/2x82". This belt also happens to the be same belt listed on the FAQ for the Original with a 38" 2 blade deck.

Charlie - you might want to verify the above and add a notation to the FAQ chart.

It has nothing to do with bandwidth and storage space. We have unlimited everything.
It has to do with people putting pics in that make the page so big that others have to scroll to see it all.
We tried that a while back. Even a pic that's 50K and under gets way to big.

We'll try it again, but if things get out of hand, we'll have to convert back.

Vueprint does a super job of converting pics as long as you adjust or set the DPI to 5.

HD pics are not necessary, and there's not a phone out there that can't be set at 1 meg or less to take posting pics with a few taps of the finger.
