£2 in Home bargains. So good deal!

is this the big one or the mini ones?

we got the mini ones last week on the 2 for £3 to paint the spare room.

what a waste of money...... patchy

I'm not voting on this, got two of these before Christmas as I bought a new house and needed to paint every room. The roller is rubbish and doesn't load with paint easily making it very messy. The frame supports the roller by two plastic end caps (not the four arm sprung metal frame) and these can slip causing the roller to come half off.

Save yourself time and money and buy a decent roller from the start for only a couple pounds more. I came to this conclusion after spending several house trying to paint a really small room and loads of little paint splatters over me and the floor protection which I luckily put down. Roller went in the bin and the other taken back for a refund.

You can get a Stanley Roller Kit:

from EVERY independent DIY shop at the moment supplied by this company. £6.99 and it is fantastic quality. Check out your local tool shop rather than going to the big places, better quality and better deals. Cold from me!

Not sure I agree that the 'four arm sprung metal frame' design is inherentally better than the 2 plastic end caps.
I find the former gradually slide off as you roll; especially when applying pressure.
Not had any problems with the plastic cap design in that regard; though it does tend to make more of a mess when you try to take the roller off the plastic caps.

I would also stay away from these cheap things, they were useless for me as well. The ones I got from homebase I couldnt even get the plastic cap off the end to put the roller on, and there was no instructions for it :x

Having said that Ive got on much better using a 'gloss' foam roller than the fluffy 'emulsion' ones for painting emulsion, seems to give a more even finish.

I'd have to disagree i've used these loads of times and have found them well useable, a very good price at £3 for two sets voted hot.

I have also used a alot of cheaper rollers and they always do the job.. (normally poundland or b+q value.. )
