To clean a brush you stick the handle into the clamps protruding from the bottom of the device. There are actually 2 sets of clamps, a smaller one, which is right next to the bottom of the main chamber and a larger one -- which protrudes further out. The brush needs to be held by both clamps in order for it to be held tightly and rotate symmetrically. I mention this because when I first got this it took a few tries to get it to work right.
It can be a little tough to get the brush into the smaller clamp. If there's nothing to hold the device in one place the force of trying to push the brush into place can end up pushing the device around. I find I sometimes have to hold the handle against my stomach so that I can create the necessary resistance to movement. That works ok.
For rollers, they slip OVER the clamps. That's easier to do but I haven't figured out how to do it w/o getting my hand covered in paint . . .
When I first received it, the handle was easy to move in and out and the device spun freely. After a while, it started to bind and stick. I put some 3 in 1 oil in the hole that the handle sits in at the top of the device and that seemed to fix the problem.
It seems to do a good job of getting paint / moisture out of the brushes and rollers. With older brushes, the rotational motion causes some of the hairs/bristles to stick out to the side a bit.
All in all, a much quicker, easier way of cleaning brushes.
I do not consider this item to be "heavy-duty" nor deserving of the Linzer name. If I could return it, I would, but I've had it for 7 months, have used it at a homeowner's pace during that time, and have found it to be initially essential but ultimately worth little.
Likely to be helpful for occasional use, but not recommended for those who may need to rely upon it for regular use and certainly not for remodelers nor painting professionals.
I'd suggest wetting down your brush then spinning before you get started, then rinse out the brush and spin every 30-60mins while you paint (or whenever you start noticing the brush is getting heavy/sticky).

Purchased due to Linzer name but labeled project source. This tool has one function, to spin, and it could not accomplish that task out of the box. Read morePublished 3 months ago by mjd
