this is all you need, that wrench and black little soft brisle brush comes with the gun when you buy it. little skew driver set is also not needed just used it to take c clip off made it easy.

the HF one is a 7 outa 10 in my book

Reason why my inut is valid: professional aircraft painter, military and civilian budgets, so we always had the best of the best tools. Ive used set ups from Sharpe, Devilbiss, Binks, CA tech, Astro, Optima, as well as a few other brands, usualy top of the line models.

best suggestion I can make to people is to swap out the needle nose and cap with a (IIRC) binks setup, not 100% sure which type, but I think the binks Mach 1 HVLP gun that has the same internal machining. Also invest in a VERY good air line dryer, I found it best to run one at the tank, and a disposable one at the gun

I still have my Binks and DeVilbiss guns from when I had my shop and the guns I have from Campbell Hausfeld and Harbor freight work very well compared to my more expensive units.

The Cambell Hausfeld rank about an eight out of ten as compared to the Binks and DeVilbiss and the Harbor Freight gun is about a seven. The guns work very well, especially for production line work and are very easy to clean.

Both brands really impressed me, especially for the money. The Harbor Freight and Campbell Hausfeld guns cost me less than a hundred and twenty for all three, now compare that to three hundred and fifty just for the DeVilbiss.

These guns are good for shooting primers and single stage paints but for custom work the Binks would definitely be the best gun to use in my opinion.

^^^Excellent Recommendation!^^^

Swapping out the tip will give a more atomized and a more uniform fan than the original tip and it will also minimize drips. The water separators are a must!! Moisture from the air line will just destroy your paint job!!
