Wagner Flexio 990 Sprayer

As you know I am not a painter, not even close.  In fact I hate painting.  When I heard about the Wagner 990 sprayer and how it made painting and staining easier, I figured I would give it a try.  As you can see by the video below, I started off painting my fence.  At first I was going a little too fast, but in a couple of minutes, I began to get the hang of it.  In fact it turned out to be really easy. I am not going to go into all the details about this sprayer....

Wagner Power Painter Max – Review

I am sure by now you have seen the commercials on TV advertising the Wagner sprayer.  If not you need to be more lazy like myself and watch a lot more TV.  While Wagner dates farther back, in 1953 Wagner developed their first paint sprayer.  So it would be safe to say the long history means they are doing something right.  At least one thing they are doing right is building a pretty good paint sprayer.  Neither Dan or Myself like painting.  In fact I would rather be pulling weeds in 101 degree heat surrounded by thorns, then paint.  Now...

Painter’s Pyramid Finishing Turntable

Painter’s Pyramid Overview You may remember our review of the Painter’s Pyramid. If not, you can take a look at the pyramid review.  For a quick review, the Painter’s pyramid is a great way to stain, paint, or finish your work in one sitting.  The system allows you to complete the project easily and allows the user to paint the sides, bottom and top without having to wait for a side to dry and then come back to finish up.  K&M came out with a new product to compliment the painter’s Pyramid.  The new product is the Painter’s Pyramid Finishing Turntable. The Finishing Turntable by Painters Pyramid is exactly as the name implies.  It is a turntable that allows the user to rotate their work and finish a certain side of the project.  This allows the user to minimize their contact or movement with a project.  In return this lowers the chance of dents, scratches and blemishing one could cause while working with stain, paint or other finishing products.  The turntable has a base of about 15.75″ which provides a lot of stability for even large projects.  The system utilizes 12 Painter’s Pyramids that can be adjusted to fit the dimensions of your work.  To our surprise this turntable supports up to 100lbs. Painter’s Pyramid  Review When we first checked this turntable out and having previous experience with the Painter’s Pyramid, we had a...
