For some reason, painting kits are frowned upon by many people because most of them are under the assumption that the said painting kits lack quality or efficiency. While it may be true for some models that are on the market, it’s definitely not a universal rule. In fact, the SP-33500 is the sole representative of that claim as it is one of the most popular as well as efficient kits on the market.
If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution for your next paint project, don’t hesitate to check this kit out and see whether it offers the things you’re looking for. Finding appropriate tools is not easy nowadays, especially when you consider the amount of low-quality tools available on the market. Check out our list of highest rated lvlp spray guns on the market.
- SP-33500 gun with a one-piece aluminum body (120cc cup)
- SP-33000 gun with a one-piece aluminum body (20oz. cup)
- Maintenance kit
- Air consumption – 2.4CFM to 3.9CFM at 30 PSI
- Working pressure – 28-45 PSI, maximum pressure 60 PSI
- 0” to 10.9” fan pattern
The versatility of this kit is what makes it worth checking out. It consists of two guns, a maintenance kit, and a number of other much-needed accessories like an air regulator, needles, and more. In general, it’s a good kit for both professional and DIY purposes, although it may struggle with thick materials if they are not properly thinned.
While the kit does come in a box, it’s far from being a carrying case. The most common misconception people have with this kit is that it comes in a neat carrying case, which is not the case here. However, the included box can be used as a case without any major issues.
The air compressor requirements are fairly easy to meet, although you should always check the specifications of your compressor in case you own one, or make sure you’re buying the one with sufficient power and features.
Both of these spray guns are well-designed and made of reliable and sturdy materials. The dominant material is aluminum (as per usual) which is a good thing because it’s not only durable but also quite lightweight. The guns are also designed to significantly reduce overspray and allow the user to paint a big surface without having to take a break. The inherent LVLP feature also comes in handy because it saves quite a bit of paint waste, especially in the long run.
The trigger sensitivity is okay, but it could have been much better. Some people complained about the inability to fine-tune the intensity of the flow by using the trigger which is more of an isolated case, but worth pointing out nonetheless.
As far as the maintenance goes, it’s far simpler than one would imagine thanks to the included cleaning kit. The all-in-one wrenches are a neat addition as well as the cleaning brush. While these additions don’t seem particularly overwhelming to many people, you can rest assured that it’s far easier to deal with maintenance if you have the appropriate tools.
It’s important to remember to read the instructions and the user manual before conducting any maintenance in order to prevent damage by misusing the included maintenance kit.
This kit can be used for a variety of different applications, from painting furniture to applying fine finishing coats. One thing you should always worry about is the viscosity of the materials you’re using meaning you should always use thinners for particularly thick materials.
While this kit can cope with certain thick materials, it’s not something we would recommend, especially if you’re not an experienced user.
What we liked about it
The overall versatility of this pack is what makes it worth checking out. Even though it doesn’t consist of the best of the best, it’s still an affordable solution that would otherwise cost quite a bit more. It’s also easy to use and get the hang of even if you don’t have any previous experience with such tools. On top of that, the maintenance is as simple as it can get which is quite an upside in comparison to other models that may require a certain amount of hassle in order to be properly cleaned.
The final major upside is definitely the price. It’s quite affordable and available even for people who are on a limited and tight budget. You can rest assured that you’ll get what you paid for and it will be worth the money.
Easy to use
Questionable quality control
Struggles with thick materials
What We Didn’t Like
While the performance of these guns is at a good level, many people complained about the responsiveness of the customer support department. On top of that, a worrying number of people got their kits delivered damaged which further raises the concerns about both quality control and customer support. As this has nothing to do with the general performance of these tools, we consider it a slight concern but worth pointing out nonetheless. Your experience may vary, depending on the shipping company as well as the vendor you’re ordering the product from.
Contrary to popular belief, premade kits are quite useful, especially for DIY enthusiasts that don’t want to invest a large amount of money into various components. This affordable kit offers everything you’ll need for a small to mid-sized project. Bear in mind; it’s essential that you check the specifications of your air compressor as well as the requirements of these guns in order to prevent incompatibility issues.
This product may not be the greatest solution for avid professionals, but it’s definitely more than enough for many people that don’t use these tools on a daily basis.
