  1. Thanks all! I didn't want to shell out for a large compressor that may get little use, so am fine with it running constantly and waiting for it to catch up. I'm such a slow potter and don't finish that many pieces, and I'll need to practice with the sprayer and see if I like the effects. It should be more noticeable for terra sig, where I can't keep track of the number of times I've brushed over a section of the pot. If it turns out I do a lot more glaze spraying, I'll think about getting a more expensive compressor then, but the oil-free ones do seem nicer, if loud.
  2. Hi all, I have read the previous posts that I could find. I've got a Harbor Freight HVLP spray gun (this one), and am planning on getting a small air compressor, probably this one. I know it's kind of underpowered but I think it will be OK for spraying some raku patinas or terra sig, based on reviews. I don't want to make a huge investment in something I may not use that much. I am trying to figure out the hose and fittings needs. The sprayer recommends a hose of 1/2 " internal diameter, but it looks like I need to get a 3/8" hose with 1/4 inch fittings? Does anyone have advice on hose diameter? How long a hose do you use? I can plug the compressor in my kiln shed and spray outside, but don't want to get too long a hose. I can call Harbor Freight to ask about the fittings, but it's confusing. Something like this with a 3/8" hose? TIA, Robin
