    If you look at some youtube videos of automobile manufacturing they use paint spray heads on robotic arms.

    I presume he was wondering what discharge technology was being used, i.e. is it HVLP or airless or air-assisted airless or something else.

    I use 1/3 Spar varnish, 1/3 BLO (Boiled linseed oil) and 1/3 turpentine. Works great on darker wood... really makes it pop. On blond wood it will give you a yellowish cast like most oil based finishes. This is a slow drying finish but is very durable and looks fantastic. As with any finish thin coats work best.

    I usually spray the first coat with a heavy on the turpentine light on the varnish/blo mix then thicken as I go.

    For blond wood that I want to keep blonde I use lacquer for low wear surfaces and water poly for high wear surfaces.

    Well I did watch a few videos, and it's not clear what system they are using.
