    Heres a gun I have been after for a long while now ,the G Vincent HVLP spray gun 77% efficient airflow ,put 14psi in and get 10psi at the cap ,most HVLP guns will achieve anything from 25% to 40% efficiency as in most will require 29psi to get 10psi at the cap ,the G Vincent does it with advanced laminar airflow ,same designer as my DUX which achieves almost perfect efficiency at 11psi in for 10psi at the cap ,the G Vincent was an earlier design by British engineer G Vincent ,the G Vincent is the blue and silver gun ,the DUX colourshifts from Brown to Green ,in the case of the DUX transfer increases from 25% to 44% achieved against against HVLP conversion guns and and I can confirm just how good the DUX is even at 5psi inlet pressures it atomises better than most of my guns and you can place the paint wherever you want ,I use it for silvers as it blends perfectly

    What products are you spraying?
    How do they compare to say Sata or Devilbiss spray wise and price wise?

    we spray allsorts from automotive to industrial ,the DUX comes in at $1200 but I scored mine off ebay for £80 brand new

    they are very different to most conversion type guns such as sata or devilbiss ,they use air speed not so much air pressure ,the lay wet and very fine ,DUX recommend you use at least a size smaller tip than you think you need due to the astonishing transfer rates

    I have a diaphragm regulator fitted under the DUX and have used inlet pressures less than 5psi with great results

    At the moment the DUX has a 0.8 set up and the universal aircap A1 but they can be fitted with a high solids automotive cap the A2 ,presently I use it for blending but have cleared with it with superb results although a bit slow due to the very small tip size ,the thing is you can aim it where you want and just take it slowly down the panel ,there is virtually no peel with it

    you would have to try one to appreciate the vast difference between a DUX and standard conversion gun

    I havent had chance to use the Vincent yet but again it seems to have a more deliberate spray pattern if that makes sense

    The DUX is a state of the art gun the Vincent is older but I am not sure just how old although though relatively modern not an antique type of thing ,as for buying a Vincent I know of no stockists and was very lucky to find someone with a few new old stock guns and spares ,the gun came fitted with a 1.8 tip but I was sent a couple of 1.3 tips and some accuspray air caps that also fit it ,the tips are very slightly different to accuspray as in they have a deeper thread but accuspray ones do fit although Vincent versions do not fit the accuspray guns

    Highly interested in a Dux, does it really “eliminate” orange peel?

    Awaiting a call back from the UK supplier!

    UK distributor basically said unless you’re pushing 100’s off gallons of materials constantly it’ll never pay off and recommended a WS400!

    But I’m still interested so a demo gun has been organised.

    It has a gravity option although the one I got was pressure feed so I have converted it myself ,mine was only a 0.8 set up and with clear it was slow but the finish was superb ,I have also tried it with industrial coating namely KOLORBOND UPV coating which we do use hundreds of gallons of over the year ,with the KOLORbond and having only a 0.8 tip it wasnt far off the iwata W101 guns we normally use speed wise but the finish was noticeably better and the transfer rates noticeably superior also

    the automotive option should be a gravity gun with the A2 high solids cap ,I cant see why he would discount these guns for a bodyshop even if they are expensive ,pressure feed would be no good for any body shop with the exception of large commercials

    have you a link to the Uk distributer ?
