Eli from New York asks:
I was wondering if you have used the Graco Jet Roller system?
Great question. We do use the Jet Roller, most commonly in our paint training program – Prep to Finish. It is a great system to teach students how to spray and back roll sheetrock walls and ceilings.
At the professional level, the Jet Roller is ideal for small tasks being done by one person. It allows you to apply paint with the sprayer and then roll with the roller all in one move. You don’t have to put the spray gun down and then pick up the roller – they are attached to the same extension.
And the roller frames are very nice. There are 9″ and 18″ versions that both work well.
Other previous power rolling options are designed to work so that the spray tip is wetting the roller as you go. We find that the jet roller works best to wet the surface (not the roller), and then roll the product out.
For small one person tasks, the Jet Roller pairs up very nicely with the Graco GX 19 hopper style airless sprayer. It will work with any airless or air assisted rig in the Graco line as well.
