Hey people. Love the format. And the "shop talk"

I'm New to this forum. But certainly not to the industry. Been in this business non stop since 1979. As an owner for 25 plus years. 2nd generation painter.
I can remember when Glidden Spread Satin( it might have been called) in the 60's, and walling out with a brush with my dad as a kid. No roller let alone a sprayer. Anyone old enough to remember those days? I think they were one of the first to develop acrylic resins. You could stand your brush up in the paint and it would not fall to the edge of the can. LOL! And my father in law used to use a bug sprayer and a water hose and nozzel to "wash" and bleach a house prior to me takng over and buying the companies first pressure washer in the early 80's.

welcome, from Mass.

I started in the very early 70's and knew a lot of old schoolers who would only brush, no rollers. They believed one needed to "work" the paint into the surface for good bonding. And those first roller covers were definitely only suitable for DIY'ers and texture surfaces. BOY did they shed. Couldn't use one for finish paint till about the third use. We had to vacuum, wash, and spin one before even using it for primer.

I stopped painting in the late 80's and am now only a wallcovering installer in the Boston area, so I never sprayed - well once with rental equipment on a stucco apt bldg. You all would have laughed at us, or shot us off the ladders.

In the early 50's California paints was manufacturing acrylic paints. I do not know how early Glidden got into them, but being a local company (California has always been based in Mass), I like to live under the delusion they were first

Anyway, welcome, look forward to having your experience add to the knowledge base here. Us old farts need to support each other (literally)
