Good post Mr. Villa, I learned a thing or two, but I still don't like to paint, unless it's with a power tool...
I still use a tray, after 20 odd years of doing this

I understand, I'm a roofer and I'd rather hand nail than use a nail gun. Just old school, I guess. (Not that the oldog does much nailing anymore)

The Wagner lady needs lessons! OMG it hurts to watch her make a mess of the wall ...

The power painter is a great technology ... if you make sure you clean is completely ... but if she had good rolling technique she would be done much faster!

Oldognewtrick, yes we real painters never use a tray and I have never done the W. Been painting over 40 years never seen anyone do the W. Where the hxxl did that come from. Most likely from some makeover program on television I suspect. In the video above, the "howtopaintinfo' guy is a pretty good painter. I can tell just by watching him, although I do it slightly diffenet than he does ( https://www.youtube.com/user/InvinciblePainting/videos ) if anyone's interested.
Trays in my professional opinion are an absolute wast of time if you're doing this for work. For the diy it's ok, JUST! They're cumbersome, difficult to work out of, don't hold much paint, difficult to move, easy to walk on, absolutely useless they are.
