Default !4 inch Rollers on the 9 inch Frame

I was curious to see how many pros have been thinking about or are already using the 14" roller cover for faster production times to keep a tight roll as compared to the 18". I also want to know if anyone has tried to use the !4" cover on the 9" frame to keep the sturdyness of the handle for control. I am thinking about putting 18" end cap and caulking it the the roller so paint wont get inside the cover as seen on the purdy mini rollers. THey do sell Lambskin 14" because we all know it would be a hassle to be buying those 14" covers as not seen in many stores. Please Provide your experience or thoughts on this subject and by all means stay relative but add some humor someone. Thnks

Use a 14" Wooster Sherlock frame, same design as a 9" frame just bigger.

Sorry but one more ? WHere would you suggest buying these tools. Amazon seems pricy. Frame, covers, and bigger tray either 5 gall. handle bucket or 21" tray and does anyone use trash bags as liner cuz its a hell of alot cheaper than 1 to 2 dollers for a 9" tray liner so i couldnt imagine the 21" liners.

I always called it "the wire". Not the proper name, but Im pretty much a straight up redneck and dont really care. Anyway, get the Wooster frame Dean mentioned. Only difference is....when I roll with a 9" roller I keep "the wire" pointed away from the area just rolled facing the direction Im painting. That wont work with the 14" Wooster. Your roller cover will quickly end up cone shaped and the will look like crap. Keep "the wire" lol pointed opposite of the direection your painting. (I hope all this makes sense)

Good luck with the 14s. Once you get used to them you will never go back to using 9s I've found a 14" to be approx 25% more productive. That aextra 25%adds up

Where do you buy your paint? My SW home store will stock pretty much anything I ask for. Theres a few boxes in the back that say "Woodland" on them

I didn't catch that. He hit the "Shift" on his keyboard cause it was at the beginning. I do it all the time.
