Default Strainers

Can some one invent a strainer that snaps onto a gallon can of 5g pail. You strain as you pour. You can replace the screen or filter after use easily no washing with water

I had something similar once, but it was more of a plastic screen than a strainer. When I do big jobs, I use 20 gallon tubs to spray out of. I cut the top few inches off a five, put my strainer on it, and use a clamp to hold in on the side to pour my paint through.

You could probably make something similar by taking a 5 gallon lid, and cutting the middle out of it, to put on your bucket. Of course, it'd probably just be easier to tape it around the paint bucket in the first place like normal.

Are you willing to pay $50 for such a strainer? That is the question. You may, but not enough people are so the justification for making such a device is pretty low.

Iíd pay $50 then the cost for replacement screens. Saves time cleaning a strainer and less messy.

There actually is a type of strainer like the one you are talking about but it is normally used in restaurants and the food service industry.

Try what's called a spagetti strainer. We used to carry them for tract painters when I worked for SW. Guys would just pour the paint over the top and it caught all the gunk.

Honestly, just the regular strainer bags are the best bet. They make them in gallon, duece, and fiver with or without the hole. For about a buck, I use them over and over. Just put it in the empty bucket, pour paint, squeeze out the excess, then throw it in your clean up water. Rinse it out at night when you clean your stuff. Just don't every turn it inside out, all the dried gunk falls out.

I've worked for a couple of very high-end contractors where every morning at the start of the day all paint had to be strained with extra fine cone filters, all cut pots had to be wiped with a dry rag and then vacuumed out before straining, we were using all oil paint for the trim and it had to be cut with kerosene.

At the end of the day, all cut pots and brushes were cleaned with kerosene to get them ready for the next day.

Bedford manufactures a 5-gallon strainer bag for that purpose. Put the bag in a clean bucket and pour in the paint, then remove the bag and throw it away. Your 5 gallon pail of paint is now pre-strained and ready to go. And, they're inexpensive.

Bedford also manufactures a 60 mesh filter bag that fits over a steel wire cage that screws onto your pickup tube or hose. The solvent resistant nylon cloth bags come in 12 or 25 packs and have draw strings. Part number 14-700 goes on a 3/4" OD tube, and 14-900 goes on up to a 1-1/4" OD tube.

These are the ones we buy. They have a space that fits around the spray machine suction tube. I think we get them from SW

So you guys don't have extra panty hose, I'm guessing.

On the hunt for something disposable. Use panty hose but they can be messy if your not careful.

If you want disposable the 5g strainer bags are the "go to" for most folks....
