    Any HPLV Painters?

    If your compressor has an output of 3.5 SCFM at 45PSI and the Harbor Freight gun you are interested in needs 12 CFM at 45 PSI, then your compressor does not pump enough air for that particular gun. The Harbor Freight HVLP #46719 touch up gun looks like it will do the trick, given the size of your job and compressor. This touch up gun has an average air consumption of 3.2 to 5.6 CFM @ 40 PSI. I've used an earlier version of this touch up gun and it worked surprisingly well, for the price. So, it's a good bet that your compressor will produce enough air using this touch up gun to complete your 10-15 square foot job. https://www.harborfreight.com/hvlp-detail-spray-gun-46719.html

    I've used this inexpensive HVLP spray gun from Amazon (see links) . It requires an operating pressure: 29 to 51 PSI and an average air consumption: 4.2 to 7.1 CFM. Urethane hot rod black over Evercoat polyester primer on K402's and KP250's. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001NOU92G/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://shop.thecoatingstore.com/15-Quart-Kit-of-Hot-Rod-Black-Single-Stage-Urethane-KPUB100-QKIT.htm https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000Q8GFPK/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. I queried Vladimir, "the Russian guy" because the "pie" badges previously listed on ebay had been removed. His reply, "I`ll start to make new badges after 10 of March."
  4. Actually that's not true. In Joe's situation "anything is not better than nothing". There is a technology to resolve his problem and it's not physical therapy. If he followed your advice he would end up with more problems. If one gives advice, one should know something about the subject, preferably be an expert or refrain from giving one's opinions. When that someone gives erroneous advice he exposes his ignorance in the area.
  5. Joe's situation is a very severe problem that requires extremely specialized care. Simply using an exercise ball or inversion table won't do it. I believe in this video Dr. Bergman explains what can be done to help assist the body to heal after botched surgeries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWlGszPkAhY
  6. I understand and you are absolutely correct on avoiding another surgery to repair the surgery because you will end up needing another surgery and the process will repeat until the entire spine is fused, then you might as well give up. You are fortunate in that you are only taking a minimal dose. Many (the vast majority) back surgery patients end up severely addicted and a premature expiration date. There are solutions to your problem if you are willing to abandon medical doctors. I have a deformity (misshapen from birth) in my sacrum that I found out about when I was 17 years old. It causes a similar problem as yours in my lumbar spine. I've never had surgery nor have I ever taken pain killers. I do require regular treatments to reposition/re-align the lumbar vertebrae or I end up being in so much pain that I can't walk.
  7. When does "X" become an addiction? Can you stop taking it? Perhaps you are addicted if you can't stop? Pain medication has its place to resolve acute problems. I'd be the first one to demand a shot of morphine if I was suffering a severed limb or some other similar trauma. But what about long term pain? Perhaps you should be asking why you have chronic pain? Maybe you could eliminate what's causing the pain and not have to take the pain killer?
  8. William is an excellent resource and was helpful when I first became interested in building Pass amps. It's too bad that he had to leave... a big loss to the Klipsch Community. I got in communication via email because I had questions with my current Aleph J amplifier project. The good news is that he's still helping.
  9. Steve Guttenberg posts a raving review of the Klipsch RP-600M bookshelf speaker on this YouTube video. I would certainly consider purchasing a set of these speakers if I was shopping for an inexpensive hi-fi system and I stumbled upon this video. In fact, I have a buddy that's planning his first system and I'm going give him the link. Steve has a large following on YouTube judging by the fact that this video has been posted for only 10 hours and already has 6,216 views. I'm not a big fan of the guy but even so my hats off to him for this excellent promotion! https://youtu.be/0V5nZWWHh48 https://www.klipsch.com/products/rp-600m-bookshelf-speaker
  10. I've had good results in the past with Reflector tubes. Because they were so highly rated I went ahead and purchased a quad of Reflector 6P3S on ebay for $27.95 including shipping from Moldova. I figured, what do I have to lose? After 20 hours these tubes sound really good! My Horn Mono's are powering individual K-402 & TAD 4002 drivers with passive crossovers via a JM Peach preamp. In this application these inexpensive tubes sound excellent and that's comparing them to Tesla EL34's, Gold Lions and KT88Z's. These are the less costly 6P3S tubes instead of the 6P3S-e. I like them so much that I went ahead and ordered a matched set of the "e" versions for $58.00 including shipping. They also produce a very pleasing blue fluorescent glow.

  12. You're right on the money Chris! Memeplexes is good way to put it. I couldn't help but take notice of the many critical comments of Steve. You might get your kicks making fun of the guy and that's okay. Nothing wrong with that, except why cut down someone who's on your team? You might want to consider what a positive asset he's become for "horn speakers" and the Klipsch company. I think any audio opinion leader that breaks the long standing audiophile propaganda line or dares to broach the foolish fixed ideas on horn speakers (senselessly repeated by mindless robots for way too many decades) is okay. How about leveling some nasty remarks on another "audio opinion leader" that cuts down horn speakers? In the following video, this guy actually labels horns as sounding "colored"! My opinion is that he should know better! He doesn't sell horn speakers, so maybe he finds it beneficial to pan Klipsch as a marketing strategy? It didn't work with me... I'm definitely not going to purchase a PS audio product after viewing this video.
  13. Yes, it's a great promotion for Klipsch and the efficacy of horn speakers. Why it took him so long to figure it out is a mystery, perhaps he got wiser with age?
