I'm pretty fast when it comes to cutting in, but I may have to try this..

Never seen a tool that works other than tape or talent.

I'm very short on talent, can't even paint a straight line when I am lucky enough to find one.

I think I stick with tape.


I bet this is from the same group that brought us the amazing flexible hose.

I have all the painting supply I need and more. I never use tape it's just a waste of time and money.

I am trying to find the product locally to give it a shot. I saw it on Amazon but I'm not willing to pay that much just to try the edger.

New to diy...except painting. LOTS of painting. I get complements from pro contractors.
I use this for edging around doors and along ceilings when the color is really saturated or darker

Load the paint pads with a brush full of paint.
I use tape along the base boards.
I've tried something similar to your link - was bogus.

While I once was able to just cut in freehand, as I get older it's not so easy.

So, I used Frog Tape at the beach house and it worked great. PIA to put it on, but I did end up with a nice job.


Whether or not this thing would work, I'll probably never know. But I can tell you that there's no way I will ever use those damn paint pads. Talk about something that can REALLY make a mess.

Interesting. What I like about that thing is that it gives you a "roller" texture right up to the trim line.

Just the same, I will stick to my cutting brush. I don't find it all too difficult.
