thanks Nolan. I got the keys to the shop yesterday and it is a blank canvas, which means I will be busy framing walls out and prepping it to be ready for a 'hands on' class in the near future that Nathan will be teaching. My showroom will be huge. This means a whole lot of scratch coat. From what Nathan told me, you're sprayer will help significanly in putting up the scratch coat. He believes I should keep the tirolessa sprayer in stock. I would love to give it a try. I need to check out the site. Your knowledge and insight I would appreciate if you have any you would like to impart. Thanks!
