Air-Compressor Gun

Pros: If you already own an air compressor, all you need is a gun and a hose (about $125 for good-quality ones); produces very smooth finish.

Cons: Has the greatest overspray of any rig; can't spray thick paint.

Best for: Finishing furniture and cabinets—anything you can isolate in a closed spray booth.
