    buying Lacquer

    I was thinking of learning how to Lacquer. I saw it in a video and they used a air gun.I got several different guns. Is this good Lacquer?Buy Behlen Brass Lacquer 13oz at Woodcraft.com

    If not where do I buy it.

    Re: buying Lacquer

    I'm no expert by any means and have never lacquered a instrument but have sprayed cars. I imagine you need a spray booth and a good quality touch up spray gun (small) with a compressor that supplies filtered air with moisture trap. Most of all a way of holding the instrument while you spray it.

    But I could be totally wrong.

    you are 100% right. Yeah the guns I have are for cars. I personally never painted a car but seen family members do it. I have a small gun that's good. It's bigger than an air brush gun. On the videos I watched the worker was holding the trumpet with one hand(he had gloves on) and spraying with other hand. I think I could get a spray booth. I think maybe an old trumpet stand would work. I just don't have an old one. Maybe I could make one of foam and wood.

    Re: buying Lacquer

    I was re-thinking this and perhaps a airbrush may be the way to go for something as small as a trumpet. And the equipment cost would be a lot less too. Perhaps one of those car acrylic lacquers?

    For the stand, perhaps a lazy susan setup that you can turn around as you spray. I guess they hold it by something in the bell.

    I think both guns will work. The airbrush for the small tubing that is hard to reach. I was also thinking about the car lacquers but I was thinking Maybe if I buy lacquers designed for brass instruments It would look nicer. The stand is a very good idea. I'll figure something out as a stand.

    Re: buying Lacquer

    Interesting, the spraygun looks like a low velocity touch up size gun used for cars. I'm surprised they don't require him to wear a respirator. Doesn't look too hard once you get the hang of it, I wonder what the lacquer mix is?

    How much does a pro place charge if you brought the horn in paint ready?

    Re: buying Lacquer

    When I had a trumpet stripped and relacquered by Charlie Melk, that portion of the work was $275.

    Your quote might be different.

    Re: buying Lacquer

    yamaha has a special room that has lacquer everywhere in the air. The put the trumpets in and send electricity through the horns and the lacquer sticks to them.

    Re: buying Lacquer

    I believe your talking about a powder coat system RAK, not lacquer. That is typically done with an electrical current creating a negative charge so the powder sticks to the base metal...then baked where it melts and cures to a glossy hard finish. Lacquer is typically a wet application...powder is a dry application with a post bake/cure. I was not aware that anyone was powder coating their horns...Do you happen to have a video on this as well???
