A 4 inch Whizz roller does the same thing and a bit faster. I could never get the pads to work. If you hit anything on the wall that's sharp, it slices into the pad and then creates paint streaks.
Well, the paint edger tools I've seen at paint and hardware stores here in Winnipeg just don't work as well as a piece of sheet metal. I have made several painting "guides" using sheet metal and small handles that I can fit my fingers under, and those work well.Nester why not a 12" paint edger tool? Keep a wet rag handy when it gets a build-up just wipe it off. Tried to copy and paste one on here didn't work for some reason.
I tried dipping for the corners. Can get a little messy and takes longer moving to the tray to dip. I used the bottle because you can keep moving. Don't have to stop to dip, and wipe of excess if you dip a little too much. Just squeeze a little paint on the pad from the bottle and keep moving. I just thought it was a time saver for the DIYers. The pros, as we can see from above, are skilled enough to cut in, or have dedicated edging gadgets that they madeWhy not just dip it in your roller pan enough to get paint on it not enough to get paint on the little wheels?
Sounds like a good idea. As long as you are getting enough paint on the wall! That can be a problem with the pad edgers also.Squeeze bottle, not squirt bottle. I gave it a test the other night. No mess. I made an S type pattern on the pad starting about 1/8" from the top and there was no mess, and no blow out on the sides, that occurs when dipping.
Yes, I took a look at that paint shield. I had a 24" one just like it, but I found that my own edging guildes were better. The ones I made for myself were about 18 inches long by 6 inches wide and made out of about 16 gauge sheet metal. I riveted a small handled onto them that was just big enough to fit 4 fingers under the handle, and I found that design much easier to use. Thanks for your suggestion, anyhow.Husky Model # PS2HD Internet # 202284231 Store SKU # 550507 12 in. Paint Shield

Husky 12 in. Paint Shield
This is what I meant also comes in 24". This also works well painting baseboard when there is carpet. Slide it under carpet then paint just remember each time you pull it out you need to wipe the paint off with a damp rag. It's thin along the edge so it slides under pretty easy.
