Answer: 
This roller knife should do all spline sizes. I did a .140 with it so you should have no problem with the .175.

Yes. I used this tool with the recommended .175 spline and Better View fiberglass screen available at Home Depot. The screened porch turned out fantastic!

Answer: 
I used this tool with the .175" spline and it worked fine - it does come with a couple different rollers, but lacks instructions as to which ones to use, so I used the one that it had originally. I used the BetterVue screen and am really pleased - it is barely visible and is a very fine mesh so it has kept the bugs out.

Answer: 
Yes this tool is for .175 screen spline as well as the smaller sizes. If you use the metal screen you have to use the smaller spline. Refer to the screen tight specs to obtain the correct size. I really don't have a preference on the type of screen. When it comes to keeping bugs out either type will do.

Answer: 
This spline roller will work for .175 spine, it only has a single size wheel so if you intend on using a smaller spline you may have some difficulty with fit.
Since you are using .175 spline you'll want to use fiberglass screen. In the case of insect prevention the smaller the idividual cell size the better. Just remember that as the cell size gets smaller visibility can decrease as well. I recommend Read More
This spline roller will work for .175 spine, it only has a single size wheel so if you intend on using a smaller spline you may have some difficulty with fit.
Since you are using .175 spline you'll want to use fiberglass screen. In the case of insect prevention the smaller the idividual cell size the better. Just remember that as the cell size gets smaller visibility can decrease as well. I recommend speaking with a Millworks specialist in the store to find the screen that offers the best balance. I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
No, it's plastic, which has the advantage that it won't cut the screen as easily while pushing it in the channel. I just did 5 screens with a plastic spline tool and it's just the same as when I got it. However, I was using fiberglass screen and not aluminum. If you're using aluminum screen I could see why you might want to use a metal spline tool because the metal screen might eat up the plastic wheel.

Answer: 
No its vinyl with a very shallow channel (a dip really) to hold the spline in place. I thought it was pretty strong and expect to get all of my windows done with it, but don't forget you can return it if its defective.

TBH, I never use the little knife that is on the end, a utility knife or scissors work better. It's just a gimmick, IMO.

I took it out of the old screen, and have ordered two screens for my balcony doors. But don't know the size of the spline. Please help. I plan to pick up my screens and spline roller on Friday from your Snapfinger Woods store, and pay for it then.

Answer: 
If it's fiberglass screen it's probably .140 spline. If it's aluminum screen you want to use .125 spline because the metal is thicker.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for .175 spline but not for the smaller gauge spline, IMO I used this on .140 spline and I went back to my other cheapie spline tool that had a more narrow wheel because I could hear the fiberglass screen being cut occasionally. It seems that if the width of the wheel is bigger than the channel when you push the spline in it can cut the screen. I checked all the screens I used this tool on and I couldn't see any tears along the spline so maybe it just made that crackle sound by hitting the screen but didn't actually cut it. Nevertheless, my cheapie tool didn't ever make that sound so I'm sticking with it. This is made for the thicker .175 spline and is probably perfect for that but I would be reticent to use it with the smaller gauge spline. It's a pretty solid tool so I'm taking away one star for not mentioning it was for .175 spline and giving it 4 stars. September 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk dont buy it! Like someone else said the wheel is too wide. Very flimsy go with the other one! August 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than the standard This spline roller and cutting knife are really nice. I paid approximately five dollars more for it than the other one. I am very glad I did. I was replacing the cheap screens with pet resistant screens since my 70lb puppy can't seemed to keep his paws off of the screening when birds and squirrels are in residence. That screening is exceptionally thick compared to the other. To compound matters my screen cannot be laid flat for the installation it must be installed vertically. This roller was ergonomic enough to get a good grip and really put my back into it. The wheel has a snug fit so no wobbling or bouncing out of the groove. The blade did very well on the cheap stuff but a word of advice, if you're going with a thick pet resistant screen just spring for the husky or stanley box cutter style blade and decrease your spline diameter a little. This blade is razor sharp for standard but not good enough for the tough stuff. June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works very well I purchased this tool along with the screen and spline, it works very well. Fits your hand good easy to roll in the spline with it, the cutting tool on the other end from the wheel is really handy. August 18, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK and Wheel was too wide for my spline width Hook knife worked well enough. Wheel was too wide for my spline width January 2, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ridiculous After a struggle and getting nowhere, I lifted one side of the screen I was attempting to install and tried to put the roller in the track without screen fighting me... and the roller didn't fit! If you're installing a .140 or larger spline, this tool might work, but it absolutely cannot work with a track that requires a very common .125 spline. You would think they might mention that on the package... but they don't. This one will be returned tomorrow. April 26, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well I have used this to install screen all around my house. I'm using 0.160 spline and it works great. The large handle is very helpful when you need to push a little harder. July 1, 2014
