Critter Spray Gun

Critter Spray GunIf you've always wanted to try spray finishing but were overwhelmed by the expense and the complicated options available, then the Critter Spray Gun is just for you! I had never sprayed a finish before and I refinished my kitchen cabinets with the Critter by spraying tinted Ceramithane, and had amazing results. You can read my review here.

The simplicity of the gun belies its excellent performance. The unit consists of a siphon gun that screws onto a standard 16 oz. Mason jar and can be used with a compressor as small as 3/4 HP. Plus the Critter is a snap to clean - simply fill another jar with the appropriate solvent, splash the liquid around, and spray it though the gun. Wipe off the liquid nozzle, lid and gasket, and you're done. The finish doesn't flow through the gun, so there are no tips or hoses to clog. Any unused finish can be stored in the Mason jar until your next use.
