Looked through a new Lee Valley Hardware catalogue yesterday and they showed a photo of an item without a sale price.  Naturally, that was the item that struck my interest.  After some looking today I determined that it was a Critter Spray Gun.  Cheapest price was on Amazon for about $40.

The nice thing about this gun is the ease of cleanup.  Might be just the thing to finish a violin.100DAE20-A149-4B7B-86A7-145016E332BF.jpegImage Enlarger

A problem of scale.  Material is held in glass Mason jar and is picked up with a siphon tube.  Spray is in a non adjustable circular pattern.  You could easily apply enough to cover a cello on one jar.  Once complete, you swap cover to store unused finish (I would apply a bit of argon gas to prevent finish jelling) and spray mineral spirits (or similar) through the siphon tube from another Mason jar.

Damn Holly, that scared me. I had the volume up too high. LOL
