But I'm not the one who cleaned it up. Can't even remember the last person I banned. But then my short-term memory ain't worth much....

Anyhow, is putting an oil on a cage that is used in waterbased paint really a good idea?
I use ultra fine graphite powder. It embeds itself into the plastic of the cage/bearing surface and doesn't wash out. And you don't run the risk of any kind of oil contamination in your paint.

I learned much from him. He knows how to make money, that's for sure. In their heyday, he employed over fifty artists and had three studios on the East Coast.I soaked up every bit of info I could from him. In fact, when I set out on my own, I did everything the exact same way as he taught me. I still run things that way and it rarely fails me.

I wish more painters would understand how important time savings is to their bottom line. If they did, we wouldn't be putting up with any Beh........Oh shoot,

That cracks me up! According to my Purdy rep i'm crazy for saying this happens!

Not everyone is rolling like a DIY'er! Slow as hell. I just about launched a cover off of one of those dang purdy cageless.

Jebus, Pete went all rangy all of a sudden? Weird.

Anyhoo, the reason I switched to the Richards cages was because of the walk off issue. They don't do it. Sleeves walking off the cage drives me insane, like ragefull kind of thing.

Some guy tried telling me once that paint sleeves are tapered. All of them. Every brand. Just slightly. He said if you take the sleeve and roll it back and forth in between the palms of your hands you'll be able to tell which way it's tapered. With this information, you can put it on your cage in the direction that will reduce walk off. I told him he was full of poop.

Sometimes I wonder though.

Anyhoo, I've been using the Richards frames for the last few years. Love 'em, haven't had a squeaky one yet. Easy to keep clean too.

I have looked at the Richards catalog a couple of times. They have a couple of neat looking products and I know their quality is pretty top notch. To bad I don't have a vendor for them

They do have a cute brush with a purple and yellow handle and a pink ribbon on the holder for cancer awareness month.

I swear, I have to use a hammer to tap the end to get the sleeves off at the end of the day. I've actually destroyed a few of these things trying to get the sleeve off with said hammer. Smashed the plastic end. Don't care, it's worth it.

No. Not true. But that is why they have the coiling lines molded into the core though. Don't know how well that works though.
There are differences in the quality control of the dimensions though, which can cause the covers to slide on the frame. For example, the wooster jumbo koater frame. I play hell trying to get the covers off of those without beating the crap out of them to get them to slide off. The yellow purdy version, the covers come right off. Doesn't matter which brand of covers i use either.
BUT, roller covers do have a directional "nap" to them. That's one of the reasons the best practice is to do your final roll with the frame pointed the same way. Microfibers are actually the worst at this. In fact, some microfibers have piss pour quality control and actually have half the nap laying one way and the other half the other way. That can cause some pretty nasty flashing that is frequently a mystery to the person doing the rolling.

So funny, like amazon reviews, 5 stars saying its perfect and 1 star saying worst product ever. Why you can't make a product work on not work for another person, just state your personal results. Everytime I try the purdy, I end up banging the end against the wall to get the cover back on. Have not figured out a solution.

Huh, so are you thinking the cages I'm using are Purdys just made for the Canadian market under the Richards name?

Remember, most of those people that post Amazon reviews don't really have much experience using anything else to compare too.

And i have had problems getting covers on and off of the purdy 9" cageless frame. That's why I don't carry them. They have gone both ways. one i tried was real loose and one i tried was so tight i couldn't get the cover to "seat" against the cap on the closed end. ? Can't tell you why.

We use the 1.75" Purdy cageless frames and have had zero problems with the covers coming off in use. OTOH, when it's time to take the cover off the frame, they pop right off, slcker'n snot.
