Gives me a good idea for a practical joke. How many of those can you get apart?

If Mixalot is backrolling, someone is spraying, and sprayers are working out of fives, not single gallons. If the entire two coat job only requires one to two gallons a bucket is way overkill, IMO.
What I meant was it's different because being around paint a lot and being a diyer that is not so familier with the procedure and is probably more apt to run into problems like spills and drips.

Got a kick out of sir mix's bucket collection!!

One thing DIY's should consider- guys who work in paint all the time get it figured out- so you don't have to..
Ya know - why reinvent the wheel and all.

Seems that once used, no matter how well you clean them, buckets seem to want to bond together. I know that from only having twos and threes of them together. With that astronomical number, I'd venture to say a zillion of them are fused, lol. Maybe that's another use for WD-40, lol, lol.

I have found a little dish soap will usually let you pull them apart. But I don't know about that many buckets.

I've used the metal grid on a few occasions. Now I only use 9" rollers in small closets so there's just no need. Everyplace else I go with an 18" roller and use a large plastic pan.

I'm with you. I keep maybe 4 or 5 old paste buckets for various uses around the yard and when it comes time to get them apart, well, you know. Wd 40, dish soap banging them with a 10 lb sledge, nothing seems to work very well.

You guy's under estimate me.

All of the buckets come apart. And if a couple of the bottom ones are stuck, I know how to get them apart real quick.
While your throwing your buckets in the land fill.
I clean mine and donate all of them every year to a youth mission that takes them to third world countries, where a five gallon bucket is as like gold.

That's admirable Sir. Good for you.

Why, do they use buckets and grids over there too, instead of pans?


Sorry, I had to do that.

Sir MixAlot, Good for you for thinking "outside the bucket"

Can you share the youth mission details? I may have another bucket hoarder in the area that could help out.

That would be great. http://www.teenmissions.org/

Maybe they are affiliated with a mission in your area.

Bucket hoarder...lol!

I was wondering what you had in mind for them- I could see that as pretty cool.
i wonder how shipping them is actually cheaper than just buying them there- but i'm already overthinking it..
