I am trying to figure out if anybody really uses an airless sprayer for finishing their projects or kitchens?

I have an airless old Titan 440 e or XC can't tell, which I have used to paint a couple of houses, a garage and 2 roofs. It paints well but it takes like a quart to prime the unit and hose. Which seems fine if your going to spray 3 or 5 gallons. But if you are going to spray a few doors or a piece of furniture it seems like to much trouble to use an airless. Am I wrong in my thinking?

I have been using wipe on poly for some of my kitchen doors and I have been wondering if there is an easier way. Is there a setup for my airless which makes it easier to use for fine finish?

Well, airless, and has always worked well for me, fine detail or not. Age old technology, and still works great.
What rig do you have and how do you use it? What finishes do you spray?

Do you start with a gallon of finish and just waste a quart? A quart is only maybe $7 so the cost is not that high. It takes me almost a gallon of paint thinner to clean my sprayer so add that in also. I think the total cost only comes to just under $20. I guess in the big picture that is not such a great cost. It is just hard for me to waste that much finish but maybe I need to rethink it.
