Teflon Painting Tools
Cleaning paint rollers, trays, and brushes often isn't worth the time or trouble, but throwaway tools are an expense that adds up. Shur-Line's new Teflon-coated roller covers, trays, and brushes for latex and oil paints and stains come clean so easily that even dried paint peels off without residue or damage.
Price: Roller covers $9 (three pack); trays $6 to $8; brushes $7 to $20. shurline.com. 877-748-7546.
Simpson Strong-Tie has added a new extension tool to its Quik Drive power driver line for installing cement board, fiber-cement board, and gypsum panel underlayments. The PROCGB Combo System comes with two auto-feed attachments that can handle a range of collated screw sizes and types to meet ANSI tile installation standards. This tool is designed for use with Makita and DeWalt screw guns, and adapters are available for other drill/driver models.
