I got myself a Wagner Power Painter Max second hand for $8. It was completely clogged up, but I got it to work after some good cleaning.
Unfortunately the cup for the paint was missing. I contacted Wagner and the nearest Parts store is about a 1000km away from where I live. $4 Part = $50 Shipping.
So I thought to myself I can make myself a paint cup from an used nuts container.
Step 1: What you will need
- Wagner Power Painter
- about 800g Nut container
- drill or sharp utility knife
Step 2: Cut the top
I tried to cut a hole into the top of the nut container, but the plastic was too strong for my utility knife. I took my drill out and roughly cut out a hole where the paint head of the Wagner Power Painter would fit through.
Step 3: Test if the paint mechanism fits through the hole
I then tested if the hole was big enough for the paint mechanism and than put it all together.
