I have a nice Wagner buzz-gun that lays down a nice healthy coat, while simultaneously rattling my medulla oblongata... But I like to work late at night sometimes, when the babes are asleep, and am looking for a hand-pump unit that sprays a "flat fan" pattern like the old Wagner does... Something much quieter, that doesn't sound like a 1930's prison electrocution is happening in the garage...

Am looking at the SOLO Hand Sprayer, but don't see the usefulness in an "O" style spray pattern.. I have tried a few cheapies now and have been disappointed in the coverage they provide. Anybody have experience with a good quiet product?

I just bought a 1 Gallon Pump Sprayer from Ace has a fine mist setting that lays down a good layer I spray about 6/8 inches covers the shirt in seconds just wave it up and down left and right.

I also use a very expensive brand of Paint Brush there are 2 or 3 $16-20+ a brush but I then brush all the fibers from top to bottom in straight strokes to get all the fibers saturated and pushed down and going 1 direction.

I also made a t-shirt "jig" that the shirts slip over so it is easy to pre treat the entire shirt or area I need.

These hand pump sprayers or the one with the wands are the best thing, simple, you don't need to plug anything in and cleaning is super easy. Also get a Wooster Paintbrush and brush down the shirt it helps a lot with Fibrillation

I know they are very convenient. Just need to find one with a Flat Fan pattern...
I used to paint down the fibers before I switched to using Fruit of The Loom HD6 t-shirts. They are by far the flattest tees to print on. I've been using/testing a small paint roller (with a non absorbent plastic roller) to even the PT coverage out. I use IA and it tends to spread out across the shirt pretty fast, which I like.
