Would like to see BM stock a top quality 1 part waterbased, quick drying, self leveling tintable polyurethane for exterior doors. 2 coats and done. Maybe this new command?

One of them has become Scuff-X, and it took my local BM supplier a while to get around to stocking enough of it regularly, but they finally got on board.

More brush choices. It's easy for me to find Wooster and Purdy, but the selection is small. It's possible to find a Corona, but the selection is even smaller... and uh, that's about it. I know I can order online. But I like to keep my $$ local.

On the wish list is a product that I think does not exist - probably because many people would say it's nuts or dumb and might not even be possible in any practical way. I want roller frames that I can lock and unlock in terms of spin. The reason is that just like "Minni don't burn chicken..."


Joe don't leave roller stipple on wood. So I'm often rolling and then brushing out wood. This adds time but is sometimes just not really feasible or practical (e.g. like a couple of weeks ago when I had to pre-paint a pile of 4x8 sheets of ply). If I could roll it on, lock the frame and lay it off with the nap stationary? It ends up looking like brush marks and to the extent that any tool marks are left they just blend with the wood grain. I hate stipple on wood...


I want a truly stain-able wood putty, which, as far as I know still does not exist.


Other than that, CApainter's list was great.
