Painting with 18" roller - Gray grease on edge of roller from the frame


New to painting with an 18" roller setup. 1st love it..dont know why it took me so long. 2nd...every once in a while I get grey grease on the edge of the roller coming from the frame pin. What am I doing wrong. Got the frame at Home Depot. Not the sherlock.

That's a new one on me. Never heard of a roller frame with GREASE in it/on it to cause such a problem. You may just have to disassemble it as much as you can and degrease it. And, who knows what brand is sold at HD. More than likely the cheap Shur-Line which is more of a DIY setup than something from Wooster/Purdy, etc.

I'd guess it's aluminum oxidation from a cheap frame not grease.
Roller frames do not use grease.
