Accubrush Paint Edgers - Cutting your Painting Time in Half!

Family Handyman Magazine: “One of the best we’ve tried”

Family Handyman DIY Painting Issue choosed Accubrush as top pick

Click to view the original review on the Handyman Magazine website.

The Family Handyman magazine reviewed the Accubrush and here’s what they had to report:

If you don’t paint every day, “cutting-in” a room can be frustrating. It’s no wonder there have been so many attempts over the years to make a tool that simplifies the task. The Accubrush edge-painting tool is one of the best we’ve tried. It makes cutting-in quick and easy. With just a little practice, you can paint perfectly straight lines along ceilings and moldings. You’ll still have to finish some areas with a brush, though, since the tool can’t paint right up to adjacent edges.

As with all of these reviews, Accubrush does NOT pay for Family Handyman to review or recommend our products.  All recommendations are based solely on Family Handyman’s independent review of the Accubrush Paint Edger.

Patented Combination of a Roller, Brush, and Shield Makes Accubrush Unique

Unique Micro Brush cuts right to the Very Edge

how the brush worksAfter much research and experimentation, it was clear that none of the other paint edgers were able to cut in a good, sharp, professional line.  Professional painters all use sash brushes to get a good line, and none of the paint edgers that were sold at the time had a brush. We did a lot of experimenting to find exactly the right size and stiffness of brush to cut the perfect line. We developed a mechanism that would hold the brush at exactly the right angle and the right distance from the trim to imitate a professional painter. Now a novice user can get the same results as a professional painter– automatically!

 Special No-Smear Shield Technology Keeps Paint off the Trim

How the shield keeps paint off the wallWe found that all of the other paint edgers being sold would quickly get paint onto the parts of the edgers that were supposed to be keeping the paint off the the trim. As a result, they often smeared paint on the trim or on the ceiling, making using them frustrating and time-consuming. We designed a special shield that eliminates the problem of smearing against the trim.


Four Inch Rollers Cuts in Wide Band

We experimented to find the widest roller that we could use and still get into most spaces in a standard house. The four inch roller by far was the winner. Cutting in a four inch wide band around the wall makes it very easy to come back and roll out the center of the wall. You can roll quickly and not worry about running the roller into the trim or the ceiling.


The Things You Can Do with an Accubrush

Become FILTHY rich in the Painting Business!

Lots of Money

We’ve calculated that a professional painter, bidding out work by the job can earn OVER THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS AN HOUR by using the Accubrush.  We said that it will cut your painting time in half– and we mean it, for a do-it-yourself homeowner who has never used the Accubrush before.  However in the hands of a professional painter who uses the Accubrush day after day, the speed increases are even more phenomenal– most professionals can paint FIVE or TEN times faster than they can by hand.  This is because the Accubrush edges VERY quickly, only needs to be reloaded once every ten linear feet (as opposed to every few inches with a brush).    Normally, a professional will cut in with a brush only an inch or two around the edge of the wall– and then has to be very careful when they are rolling out the rest of the wall not to bump into the trim or the ceiling. In contrast, the Accubrush cuts in a FOUR INCH WIDE stripe, which makes the rolling go very very fast.


And of course, the accuracy of the Accubrush rivals that of the most experienced, steady-handed painters in the industry, which means that the work you do with an Accubrush is of the same quality that clients come to expect from professional painters.  This means higher client satisfaction and more repeat and referral business.


If you are considering starting or growing a painting, decorating, or remodeling business, even part-time or on the weekends, consider the Accubrush to be an essential business partner.

Take a Vacation to the Carribean!

I’m not kidding.  Professional painters can easily charge THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to come and paint your house.  Using the Accubrush, you can do the work yourself and do something more entertaining with the money that you save.

Take the kids to Disneyland

The Accubrush can take major painting projects that would otherwise take several weekends, and speed them up so that you’re done in a day or two.  By using the Accubrush, you very well may have an extra weekend to do something with people you care about.

Decorate like a Pro with 3- and 4-color schemes

colored walls

If you look at any decorating magazine, you will see that all of the professionally designed room use three and four (or more) color paint schemes for maximum effect.  Often, there are bold combinations of colors on different walls, the trim, and the ceiling.  These designs are often difficult and expensive to implement because of the additional work required to cut in all of these different colors.   Using the Accubrush, you can quickly cut in as many different colors as you would like.  You can make your house look professionally designed by using three and four color schemes.

Make everyone think that you hired an interior designer and a professional painter!

Not everyone goes around showing off their Accubrush when they’re done painting their house.  Some of them quietly tuck it away in the garage and let everyone else think that they hired a professional interior designer and a professional painter.  It’s your “secret weapon.”  With the high quality results you’ll get from the Accubrush, who’s going to argue?

Do something REALLY special for someone: Paint a room in THEIR House!

Do you know anyone who really needs to have a room or rooms painted in their house but can’t do it themselves and might not have the money to hire a professional?  Helping someone by repainting one or more rooms in their house is a gift that not only be helpful, but will be much appreciated and not easily forgotten.
