I also purchased some of the folding plastic film for panting window trim. For that I use blue painters tape along with the plastic and tape off the top of the window, just at the trim. (I have vinyl windows, so I don’t need to paint the window frames themselves.) From there, I can fold down the plastic, tape the sides of the plastic to the sides of the frame and tape the bottom of the plastic along the bottom of the frame. Then, my whole window and frame are safe from paint. You CAN buy film and paper that come pre-taped and you can roll it out buy hand, but it is expensive and this is SO. MUCH. EASIER. Seriously. It goes smoothly, and quickly. I don’t have to fight with masking tape rolling, folding or tearing on my. I don’t accidentally stick the tape to the loose plastic or paper. My cuts are always nice and straight and even. It goes SO quickly! I can have the floors of an entire room taped and protected in 5 minutes or less.
Psychologically, it seems hard to justify buying a tool for something that really, you CAN do on your own, but if you’re going to be doing several projects or a large, time consuming project like painting trim, the money this costs more than make up for the time it saves. We have a whole house worth of trim to paint, and the next project will be the walls. I am getting PLENTY of use out of this. Additionally, I can bring it to friends and family’s homes to help them mask their painting projects, they generally pay for their own tape, paper, plastic etc. I feel that I have already more than gotten my money’s worth for this.
Also, don’t forget to buy the blade, it doesn’t come with one, unfortunately. Save yourself some money and just buy the sharp, plastic blade, and skip the “paper” blade. You can cut the paper with the plastic blade just fine, but you can’t cut the plastic with the paper blade. There’s no reason to buy both and try to change them all the time.
Need to cover windows before spraying trim?? What used to be a 20 minute job per window is now 1/4 of that, mask off baseboards before painting a room, around ceiling fans before painting the ceiling. I can't tell you how many things I've masked.
If you need to figure out how to load it and use it go to YouTube and watch the Idaho Painter, he'll show you how.
Update: After using the masker for several month now I reduced my rating to 2 stars. The masker works OK for straight lines and "normal flat surface" masking. However, the tear off is extremely annoying - even using the $$$ straight cut blade.
