Peter,
I don't have those guns but mine are very similar. I use mine all the time and love them. The biggest thing to be concerned with is, what are you going to spray with them and do you have the right tip size. I would look up and see what tip would be best for your applications. The 1.8 tip may be too small for the things you want to do. I use a 2.0 and a 2.5 tip on many of my projects. So if you do buy them make sure you can get bigger tips.
Here is an ebay gun that talks about tip sizes.

Hi Peter

That's a nice set, I don't have that set but I have the older model and it works well but when they say it's automotive type they are saying you must knock the mix down so it can be used in the gun so that why I started to use a true HVLP system, less than 5 lbs.psi and it will put down just about anything you put in the gun right out of the can a lot of the time I don't put it in the cup I just stick the stem in the can and shoot . (HF item at about 60.oo )
The HF system is on the low end but the price range is right and I would stack it up to many of the high price ones..it's that good...and is a snap for clean up..

see below

Hello Peter! I am not sure how they would work, The viscosity of auto paints are different that our wood finish. The guns can also be pretty grumpy things, If the material Your spraying isn't just right, it will not spray. Coming from the auto industry, We tried many different professional guns, and only a few guns would lay out a finish that wasnt runny, or full of orange peel. Taking what I have experienced with the guns almost 10 years ago, I would make sure that if it didn't work to Your satisifation, You would return it. That is how i would approach it.

Thanks guys. Loved Bob's filtering stand. I hadn't realised it was necessary to filter the paint. I'd be using it for finishing wooden items with water based paint. I couldn't find Bob's Chicago Electric HVLP kit. It looks like they may have discontinued it.

Cheers

Peter,
I bought one of those chicago electric hvlp sprayers a couple years ago. They will not shoot latex paint, you have to thin it down to much to even get it through the gun and even further to make it spray without orange peel by then the paint is no good. Mine sits on a shelf. I do use the air pump to blow up air mattresses though it works great for that.

My air compressor hasn't got the volume to push a HVLP gun so I sprung for an Earlex 3500 and have been well satisfied with it. Sprays latex and oil stain with no issues.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
