BL, how many CFM do those HVLP guns require? I don't know why, but the CFM requirements of air tools is damned near impossible to obtain. Since it's the air equivalent of wattage or amperage draw on an electrical tool I fail to understand why it is never listed in the specs of air tools.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
