I have painted more than seven houses with the Paint Stick, once you figure it out, you'll love it, but if you don't you'll hate it, I did notice however, the earlier made ones ( bought through Orchard/division of Sears ) used to last a lot longer than the exact looking ones you buy these days, I guess you can call it American ingenuity, but for 19.95 it's not so bad ! you can buy rebuild kits too. They used to sell them on T.V. part of an infomercial for $59.99, but wait if you order now, you'll get....." you know what I mean "
I have tried the Wagner pumps as well, they work great,( sprayer and roller ) and you have to keep them clean, if you ever need any parts for the Wagner. " Just forget about it " the parts are extremely expensive.
