@ScottAlexNot really, if you would take the time to read, maybe learn there is adjustment in the pad but as noted your just trying to diss a tool that provides a clean way to cut in a ceiling/wall paint line.
You ignoring the intent of this forum/post, we are not talking about someone who has years of practice, we're talking about the average DIY who wants to paint their own room, for that application, there is nothing better out there to do the job.
Get off the high horse and do what is good for the person looking for help!
Barring any safety factor....
If a DIYer is comfortable using a tool... and satisfied with the results, Have at it and have fun!
Your undertaking will be better when you are comfortable with the tool.
Pros have years of practiced skills with other tools.
oh, it's ludicrous to believe the knowledge from years of practiced professionalism can be achieved through a few minutes of Youtube viewing.
Some who denigrate craftsmen with such suggestions .... welll, those thoughts should be taken with a pound of salt.
Have fun folks !!
