Wagner Control Spray Double Duty
Paint container lid got stuck and can't refill the paint
I was using it to spray paint the ceiling and at first it was a bit leaking so I tighten the lid better, but when the time came to refill the paint I could not untwist the lid off! My husband and I tried the old tricks like running hot water over the lid, sticking a knife between the lid and the can, etc, but to no avail. We're opened to suggestions. Maybe this is not such a good product for a big like painting walls or ceilings.

Easy to use/efficient
We stained our fence and deck last weekend. Originally, they were both a natural cedar-tone color. And we decided to change things up quite a bit and go with a solid stain in a slate gray color. It was suppose to be a "4-Gallon" project according to stain manufacturer's quantity estimate. 10 GALLONS later, we have an amazing looking fence and deck! We couldn't have done it without the sprayer; as we did the spray/back-brush method that was recommended to us. The stain was quite thick since it was a solid stain and they tend to be thicker in consistency. So the sprayer did not work so great in our first attempt. However, we added paint thinner to help with the application and the back-brushing...and that worked beautifully. We will definitely be using this sprayer again. Our only wish would be for the container that holds stain to be a bit larger (for large jobs) so we wouldn't have to fill it too often.

BEST purchase ever
This s a great sprayer. I like to pick up older furniture and refinish it. Using a brush is so time consuming so I picked up this sprayer not having high hopes after all its only a $60 dollar peiece of equipment how good could it be. It was amazing the finish is perfect I could not be happier. Another major plus for me is it can be used indoors,
here in Wisconsin that is a big plus.

Biggest time saver ever!
I painted one 16' long baseboard with a brush and it took 10 minutes. In the same time I was able to paint 160' with this sprayer. For paint I had to thin out according to instructions. The finish couldn't look better! Cleanup was actually easy. I will be using this to refinish all of my doors next weekend instead of over 5 weekends.
