    I've just purchased a second hand air compressor on ebay and want to use it to spray woodworm treatment in all the timbers in the loft. Can anyone recommend the best sprayer for the job. The wood preserver is like water, so not sure which gun to use as getting quite confused with the different array of spray cans available. i.e overhead can (gravity) etc.

    How big is the compressor hp/cfm.

    If it’s like water, any gun will do within reason as you won’t be worried about the quality of atmozisation as you would if you’re trying to get a glass like finish spraying paint. Also, if it is a bit greedy in the air consumption dept, it’s not an issue as you’re not spraying a car etc, where waiting for the air to build up can make or break the quality of the paint work.

    I’d just buy one of the cheap all in one spray kits, that come with a tyre inflator, spray gun, paraffin gun etc. Prob about £20.

    The cheap kits usually contain a parafin gun which sounds like it would be ideal.

    I haven't got the compressor, the seller was only selling the motor unit when I turned up. :oops:

    I have a big garden sprayer so going to try this and see how it works.
