Thinking about getting a texture gun...I seem to be renting one all the time. What do you guys use?

Is the Stanley model any good?

Is the gratex the best? I was looking in to picking up a new gun and was wondering what the best one was. I not to worried about the money cause I always willing to spend money on quality tools. Just as long it is quality.

I think it is. I have used a couple different operations, and like this one the absolute best.

BryPaulD,
Interesting... kinda like the difference between those little $20 quart paint sprayers and a nice airless. How much does that thing cost? I don't do drywall every day.

If you are just looking for a hopper , the stanley goldblatt works good. I use it at the JLC shows. It has a lid that is spring forced down so you get the same splatter even as the hopper empties.
