Default 18" frames

Pretty much the SW frames suck. Besides the fact they are hideous looking. I bought one last week in a rush to get to the job, used it once and the clip broke. Went to have them replace it, used it once, it broke again. Now the Wooster big ben feels more sturdy but they seem easy to break as well. Anyone use the Hulk? Those seem pretty sweet and my local BM just got them in last week

Never had one break on me

I have the older version of the Hulk, it is sturdy. I have not broken a Big Ben though.

Problem with the older hulk is that it's too easy to either loose a wingnut, or have it fall in your paint.

The new ones got rid of that problem though :p

I use the original, pre HULK. Some guys say the HULK cams come loose. My frames are all about 10 years old. Never had one break or lost a wing nut. I did change out the wing nuts for these because they are easier to handle. Found them at ACE Hardware.

I use the Hulk. Tried the cam lock version recently... what a joke. Had the roller fall off half way up the wall. When that happens the frame gouges the wall. Why change what works?

The only SW 18" frame Ive seen is made by Best-Liebco, is that the sw frame you are discussing in first post?
