painting tool I'm about to paint the outside of my two houses. I'm contemplating the prjoect. From my limited painting experience in the past it seems to me the most time consuming and effort taking part of painting is getting the right amount of paint on to the roller, not so much that paint drops splatter all over, nor so little that it takes forever to do the job. Not too long ago I saw a informercial about a paint tool whose handle is a tube that holds paint; as painting is done the paint comes out automatically. Looks like it will address the exact issue I describe. Has anyone used this tool to give a feedback?

Sorry, disagree.

80%-90% of a good paint job is preparation, NOT painting! Applying paint is trivial!

"it seems to me the most time consuming and effort taking part of painting is getting the right amount of paint on to the roller..."

Couldn't disagree more. A cheap 5-gallon bucket, a grid, a roller and a brush is a cheap, easy, fast and good way to apply paint.

AND... you're painting the OUTSIDE of 2 houses. Rollers are great for getting paint up quickly. But on exteriors, ALWAYS brush it in quickly once the paint is up, especially into openings and especially to create grains.

Your "infomercial" tool might help, but I doubt it ("a tube that holds paint - Huh?"). Two people (one rolling, one brushing) and $25 of parts (bucket, grid, roller, roller-cover, brush) will do a much better job, IMO. And prep is far more important than how you apply paint.

bugus tool

The tool is not going to work for you. It was designed for the idiots that buy stuff on tv & never use it.

The best way to do the exterior is to pressure wash it then spend a lot of time masking and caulking. Then you get to spray it and come back over the fresh paint with a roller or brush.

If a sprayer is not available then go to Home Depot and buy their 5 gallon bucket roller screen. you will be rolling and brushing for a long time but it will be a better quality job.

nah, just spend the $ to get a good roller

I just use a cheap screen and big bucket, fill it partway up with paint, and go to town. I just cheaped out on a roller, and regretted it -- it saps your energy. That sucker's in the trash. I miss the good roller I had several years back.

I'd get a Wagner PowerPainter and earmuffs

and you can do 2 houses with it, more than pay for the $90 or so it will cost, then you can throw it away with a smile. It will take you MUCH less time than a roller, be more even and thrifty with paint. Just keep your painting during day hours, they're LOUD which is why you need ear protection.

Don't let paint dry in it! Clean it thoroughly or keep it wet.
