Default Liners for the wooster big ben tray

Please excuse me if this topic has already been discussed. Im in the process of switching to a 14 roller and am looking for a tray to use with tray liners. Im not a fan of buckets for many reasons but I wont get into that. As Im sure most of you know, there are no liners on the market that fit the Wooster big ben tray. I am thinking of getting a 24 roll of heavy duty aluminum foil to line the tray and act as a tray liner. Has anyone tried this and if so, what was your experience with it?

Really? I've looked everywhere for something like that. Where do you buy them from? I even looked on the wooster website.

Has anyone tried using heavey duty tin foil? I'm going to give it a go. It seems like it would work and and I can't think of any potential issues at the moment. Talk about a money saver...tray liners are $2 a pop!

You could have issues with the paint drying on the tinfoil and transfering onto the sleeve during the day...You can find tinfoil that wide?

Also tray liners can be used over and over again...Just let them dry out like you do with a tray...I've used the same one for a month.

Thanks. I just took a look at their website. Unfortunately they don't have any stores near me as I am in Ontario. I may give them a call and see if they can send me some. Thanks.

PM me when you have enough posts...or use google..They have all the stores listed online including phone numbers.

I just looked and they are manufacutred by NOIR here in Canada...My bad they are not Wooster trays..

Here's some for sale on ebay.

Also ANY paint store that sells NOUR products should be able to order them for you..Try General Paint or ICI Paint...The model # is included in the ebay auction.

http://cgi.ebay.com/TL850-Nour-23-Pa...-/130538970098

Home hardware also carries them.

I use kitchen garbage bags in my Big Ben tray. Open bag, insert tray and position, add paint and go. When done just roll it inside out and use to put tape and other trash in. Works great for me.

I am in the process of developing the liners that fit the Big Ben paint roller trays.
I hope also to put out the liners for the Wooster Speed Bucket this summer....

Curious to know what everyone's take on the trays over the Wooster buckets are....or visa versa.......we have been using the buckets for over fifteen years and so we are quite use to them......I did notice in field testing the Big Ben tray that the grid pattern is a little deeper and loads the roller faster.....

We primary use the speed bucket to roll primer on small drywall patches and on the exterior we use it to roll and tip lap siding.....I suppose there are many other uses for the speed bucket as well....

I find the bags don't stick well to the tray and they end up ripping. Maybe you are doing something differnt then me.

We take 3m 72" plastic and line the bucket, we first fill the lined bucket with paint, then tape it to the lid. If you tape it first there might be some uneven spots.we do the same with paint buckets.

We own more than one paint bucket to roll out of. It really increases our overhead but it is well worth it.

Try dabbing the tray first with wet paint in 4-5 spots and a couple of spots along the inside sides before pulling the bag over the tray...and I also tape the ears on the front back under and I also tape the bag around the legs...actually I pull the legs thru the bag on the tray underside and snap a piece of tape on it to keep it from bunching up into the tray . Sounds like a lot of work...but takes about a minute and another minute to remove when done .

I also do see a lot of upside to tray liners...but they are expensive IMO and wasteful unless as someone said "you could just keep using them over ". Anytime I tried using them over I always found that the previous paint would not stick securely enough and when you added the new paint the old stuff broke off into it in places and created havoc .
