Teflon Painting Tools

Image

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.

This tool is designed for use with Makita and DeWalt screw guns, and adapters are available for other drill/driver models.
