Great DIY screening tool
 
I would like to share the secret of easy rescreening. I own a screen enclosure company, and have seen every screen tool there ever was. I never really liked any of them, and some were downright hazardous to use. So, since the begining of my screening days, we have constructed our own utilizing a quick change razor box cutter and a screen roller. Just attach them together with a couple washers and breeze through jobs, without changing tools. We don't sell the rollers, but you can order them for just a couple bucks. http://www.diychatroom.com/members/a...-screening.jpg

This is great! Good idea. Maybe you should patent this!

I'm surprised no one has. I guess we all assumed someone else would do it. You aren't by chance a patent attorney are you?

Seriously though, it does make a great screen rolling tool, for about 7 bucks. Just be sure to use the right roller, there are ones for flat spline, like on screen enclosures, and ones for round spline, like in windows and screen doors.

I appreciate your reading the thread and commenting, thanks.

Just got back from the patent office, thanks for the idea! I think this is going to be a big money maker for me. :thumbup:

I shoulda got a patent.
 
Believe me, its been tried. But none of the products they came out with beat the simple ole rollerknife. But if you do get rich, send my royalty on over. :)
