Review of the new Harbor Freight Pro HVLP spray gun model 68843. No, it’s not purple! It’s an all shiny nickle like finish HVLP paint gun and has a nice comfortable feel in the hand. The machining is a notch higher than previous HVLP spray guns from Harbor Freight such as the famous Purple Harbor Freight gun.

Do you reduce paint just by eyeballing it how well it sprays? I’m going to paint the inside of my camper with Behr interior/exterior paint and was just curious how much I should reduce it?

numnydar says:

My issue is the parts I have to paint are huge

markbuckeye says:

Can you get different tips for this gun? Do you know what other brands fit? Thanks. Nice vid, too bad about the spill…

Rob Here trev2323 says:

thanks for the review

rock dawg says:

remember when painting that most of these paints have bad stuff in them you must take precations to avoid skin and face contact and have a well ventilated work space

hunkydude322 says:

arent these hvlp spray guns designed to spray paint at 22 to say 27 psi etc… sounds like your using sihpon pressure rules there

Dominique Paul says:

Do you still consider Harbor Freight Pro HVLP spray gun model 68843 the best? I’m trying to find something affordable to DIY my car at home.

Dingus chopper says:

LMAO about the spilled paint …..Ive done it and fucked up the paint job bro . Hope your eye is ok

Vincent Morrison aka NaS says:

That’s so good for your eyes.

my iwata 2930 was 152 new delivered to the door

R3511J says:

that was funny

jushah1 says:

Hi @DECIPLESgarage, i watched your malibu flip video and you mentioned that the compressor was not strong enough. If I want to paint the front of my car (hood, bumper and fenders) what all equipment I need (from compressor (capacity,size) to spray guns(size)) ? Pls let me know. Thanks Ju

Juan Lozano says:

Isocyanate exposure bad. Need good breathing device. Probably not good for eyes either. I could do without the music on all these tutorial videos. Thanks for the advice on Harbor Freight.

Edwin Garcia says:

My compressor runs up to 4 CFM / 8galons , do you think this gun will work intermitent or it just that wont flow enough air to do an acceptable and continous paint job?

J Miller says:

Dude if you have to turn the pressure up that high and have paint flying everywhere it is not a good gun.

BALLOON!!! says:

I can tell you are a painter by how you spray but this is how I know you are a professional. You had paint in your eyes but first you gently set the gun on the ground before you started the clean up.

David Parsons says:

you need to slow down a little bit wen your spraying the Clair cote

Farmer2492 says:

was that acrylic paint you were spraying and what size nozle were you using

flamecrow says:

Wow I’m surprised to see this set up and done in a home garage 😮

Dean Donask says:

slowmo voice…….”nNOoooo”…..

Heath Campbell says:

You could always paint barber poles. Just kidding.

reints74 says:

I just bought this gun yesterday, in hopes that it had a large fan pattern like I’m used to when I sprayed all the time. Haven’t opened the box yet & was hoping I’d see a video like yours. I like the fan pattern of this one, I’m gonna give it a try.
Thanks for posting. Sorry about your eye. Been there, done similar!

AlwaysFreeAmerica says:

Are you still using your HF 68843, and if so, are you still liking it? Does it leave “orange peel” texture?

Jason Sprouse says:

I’m not quite sure what the point was in doing a spray without a regulator and saying it was the customers’ fault for being cheap. Regulator is a one time purchase. Just say you are half assing it because it’s what you do.

Rodolfo Pierre says:

sorry about the eye men I hope your ok men.

Chewybrand says:

So now you are a “one eyed” painter.

Yamaha Rider says:

at least it didn’t hit the hood when you dumped it that Woulda really sucked

Rene Hasprunar says:

Sorry that you got hurt, thank you for the review.

67z says:

Fuck the your air pressure is about 80 . Fuck no don’t review unless you wtf you’re doing

ChevyHDss Chevy life says:

Hope your eye is ok man..but good video

godbluffvdgg says:

Pull the trigger and let er rip…:)…If you can’t make money with that girl, you’re in the wrong damn business! Dude, that was fucked! getting that paint in your eye like that! Well it’s 3 years later…Did you get hurt from it? Was it a operator or equipment error…You were going so smoothly!

markfothebeast says:

This video is what made me change my mind on the 2pc HVLP purple set and buy this unit instead.

Noober McNooberson says:
Paul Blakey says:

Holy Crap!! Thats what I said when you got it in your eye. very nice work otherwise!

Steve Davis says:

Whats the tip size?

Edwin Garcia says:

It is normal so much mist when applying base and clear coats with this gun. If there is a possible #, what is the percentage of air and paint of the mist when painting base coat (guess this is call paint loss). Thanks, hope to know your comments.

Doug Davis says:

Total piece of junk. The gauge had the needle on the wrong side of the stop so that doesn’t work. I couldn’t take the nozzle off even tried using a hammer. I bought mine online so I just threw it in the trash.
