Never was able to make $4 samples work. My clients get large swatches if they want though. Tommorrow morning if needed.
Sds we are talking small repairs here a door knob bump, remove an outlet or switch, maybe something just bumped into the wall. Being in Fla the land of texture not bragging but I have had to become pretty good at these small repairs and paint match. Maybe I have just been lucky but those little samples have worked out pretty good I wouldn't want to do the whole wall with it though.

He also does testing and shows accurate results of those tests for all to see. Much more than I've seen from any of our forum members who usually just belt out opinions with little reliable verbage to back it up.

Including you as I have read some of your posts. And how do you know the results are accurate because they say what you want them too. If you look hard enough and long enough you can a test on the internet that will say just about anything. And who is he.

But then I'm not the one trashing a pretty well researched web site, am I?

Who are you? How do you know anything you read here is accurate? You don't. You read what's presented, you figure out if it's well written and makes sense to you, and you make your decision.

And I can tell you what's written on that web site is far more well researched and thorough than anything that's been written on this forum. I'm not trashing this forum, it's great. A forum is different from a web site. But that web site is good too. They are good in different ways.

I don't know who that guy is and I don't care. It can be written by Mickey Mouse for all I care. Everything I've tried from that web site works and works well. Everything he warns against that I have experience with, is a legitimate concern.

Easy there big fellas. No one is the final word. We're all really still apprentices, if you think about it. No matter how smart you think you are, or how much you think you know, someone can come along and make you look stupid. Don't look stupid! Final word.

Just sayin.

I think JP has done some good research. He shows up on the pro site and backs up his claims, but it is from the viewpoint of how he does production. Not all that is transferable to the DIY.
He is rather big on himself and gets trashed for that- but I know i have picked up valuable info on products from him.

Great post Joe. Like you, I have been in this painting business for a long, long time. Apprentice is a good word. I know I have had to throw out a lot of what I thought I knew because this business is changing so much faster now with changes in paint chemistry, new application techniques, new products, and research that points to better/longer lasting ways of doing things. You really have to become a "sponge" and soak it all in, whether from your local paintstore, print media, or the internet. I am grateful for any and all info as it gives me a chance to try it all out and measure its' success.

I have been in the paint business over 40 years and learn something new every day. Alot of what we knew and advised 10 years ago is obsolete. I was off this year for over three months due to surgery. When I returned, I was surprised how much new information I had to catch up on. Yes, we are all apprentices. Thanks, Joe, for putting into words what we know to be true!
