Spray finishing is one of those things that, until you do it, you won’t believe how easy and quick it is. Producing a professional quality finish doesn’t take years of practice and today’s 100 percent self-contained units are surprisingly easy to set up. Fuji’s Mini-Mite 3 has always been a very solid performer, but they’ve recently improved their turbine in a couple of ways. Fuji channeled the heat created from the turbine through a heat dissipation box. This box has a series of 60 holes that evenly, gently and quietly remove heat. This has the additional benefit of not blowing air around the shop and stirring up dust.
The newly designed filters also play a role in reducing noise. I found the results to be very impressive – a three-stage turbine that’s quiet, keeps dust down and produces a beautiful, even finish.
