    This has worked well for me! At least in business, not so much with women... If I didn't feel comfortable on a gut level, I either bailed or went in with my eyes wide open and watching my back.

    That's what I did with the one 440, 2 speed motor machine I have. Those transformers are easy to find used, and it's very simple to hook up.

    And I wouldn't call that a "vintage" machine, it's not...

    To put this in perspective, I'm "semi-retired", working alone, only spraying 3 or 4 banjos a year, with a tiny Sata minijet gun. Pretty far under the radar, but I want to stay safe as I can.

    Not addressing the OP's problem, but if you watch a lot of youtube videos, and want them ad free, you can pay for youtube "premium" and never see another ad again. I did, and it's well worth it to...

    There is a lesson in this. If it looks like a great deal, get there right away with cash in hand. It's hard to look at a wad of cash and tell the guy he has to wait until someone else has come over...

    +1 for Stoneaxe's advice, that's pretty much what I've done. Every shop should have a 4' Starrett straight edge, well worth the cost. But then I got a jointer with a Shelix head, and the insert...

    I never answer my landline, always let it go to message. Then at the end of the day I check them. Many used to be spam, got rid of that by starting the message with the "Special Information Tone"...
