Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mattman Good tool but extremely poor quality
A brush/roller spinner is a great tool for any painter. Unfortunately, this tool is extremely poor quality. It rust very easily, needs constant lubrication and feels like it's going to fall apart in your hand. I had to spread the times to get it to grip a roller. The more expensive Purdy model is a much better investment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Prevent rust, by lubing
As mentioned by the other reviewers, rust is a issue with this product.
The visible parts of the spinner is either chrome or stainless steel, but the internal parts are neither, and they will rust, if water get into the tube, otherwise the product works as advertised.
If water enters the tube, and rust appear, spray lithium grease on the plunger, and spray it into the tube.
Lithium grease will lube the interior, and allow the plunger to move freely, in and out of the tube. Otherwise, the plunger will be very sluggish, and difficult to operate.
I believe WD40 would have the same affect, but I didn't have any on hand at the time.
Achieved ROI via reuse of paint brushes and paint roller covers.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Diver Extends Brush Life, but Poorly Manufactured
I've been fixing up my duplex and painting off-and-on for almost 3 weeks. This definitely extends the life of brushes, but the production quality is very poor and the spinner is nearly broken at this point.
The inner fingers tend to gouge wider handled brushes when pulling them out, and the internal gear tends to jam because the handle & shaft wiggle out of true.

Worked great the first time I used it. I eagerly pulled it out a week later and it rusted! Barely usable. Maybe I can revive it with some oil. Or maybe I will just bring it back.
