TurboRoll 550 for Walls and Ceilings

3.0 out of 5 stars a fiddle, a good idea poorly executed, 12 Sep 2013
when i first received this the paint went in straight away and off we went. it is heavy so coverage is haphazard and i see i have to re-pass. however, it did cover the wall, that is more due to the paint, and there were no splashes.

i left it and went back to it. that is when everything went haywire. the paint coagulates so forms lumps and a bit sticky to get re-started. then the paint started to come out of the filler and not arrive at all to the roller.

i followed another critics suggestion and looked for a bottle cap to close off. unsuccessful with that. couldnt find a bottle top the right size. so i used a rubber glove, the surgical type hauled through the hole and then screwed on, that worked. however, on refill, a new glove had to be used and so on.

i unattached the roller to wash, full of paint of course and paint seem to ooze from everywhere, the sponge, the tube so now all sat there to drain off and then i will have the pleasant task of scrubbing hardening paint off of and out of tubes etc.

i intend going to the hardware store to see if they have a flat seal to fit instead of the filler seal. this is something that wagner could quite easily supply without too much expense i am sure instead of having their product sleighted.

the use of the roller itself is heavy going. one must start at the higher points as when the paint reduces so does the handle. i have the manual type. of course in small or narrow spaces, the long and filled handle is a handicap. no space to move.

all in all, if it works, it is good. but all these fiddles makes it only a nuisance and a waste of time. i will see how the seal goes for the filler and how the total cleanse goes . maybe it could be as new and we actually have a product that works. but if the cleanse works, it means that the total usage time is limited. happy rolling!

1.0 out of 5 stars VAT? DIDN;T CONSIDER FOR A MINUTE THERE WOULD BE VAT ON TOP, 27 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I THOUGHT ALL THE PRICES WERE GROSS , I NEVER THOUGHT FOR A MINUTE VAT WOULD BE ADDED TO GROCERY ITEMS. COULD WE HAVE THE GROSS PRICE PSE. AT LEAST THEN WE WOULD KNOW THE FINAL PRICE FROM THE START. THE PRICE IS ALWAYS A DECIDING FACTOR.

1.0 out of 5 stars V.A.T. ? didn't realise that the prices advertised are net,, 27 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i have vat on my recent orders which i didn't expect. so the raisins, ten pounds forty, came out as eleven pounds something. with diverse items on various orders, there is no knowing what vat is being charged on and not.

pricing is therefore unclear.

3.0 out of 5 stars very limited use, 14 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
awkward to use which is a shame as it would be ideal for a little kitchen and for an older person who wants just a little oven. the lid swings a bit when removing it and then the lid holder is too light weight and shifts about when trying to rest it. two hands are needed, one to keep the cable out of the way. bakes potatoes well and i did bake in it with some success but have used it little since my first experiments. awkward too removing a hot dish from the bottom of the container. the plastic handle of my tongs melted as they landed up under the lid.

1.0 out of 5 stars more heat in a candle, 14 Sep 2012
this is not a heat source, more heat from a candle. good to look at if you can keep the flame high otherwise it is quite pathetic

bio ethanol is not a heating alternative. there is more heat in a candle. this is expensive just for a visual effect

1.0 out of 5 stars as mats go........perfect, as for a double blanket????????!!!, 12 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I could shoot myself for not checking the measurements as i have just wasted on the postage not to mention the item.

This is fine for a heat pad but there is no way in a million years it could be considered a blanket. Now Trading and Standards, you could have a field day with this one.

The picture indicates that it arrives as far as the corner where it is tethered. Looks good, but only that corner is covered. Biiiigggg cold patch everywhere else.

I am a bit of princess and pea person, i don't like lumps and bumps in my bed but i could swear that there is more cord than blanket.

With, what I would call an average bed size these days, roughly 1.80 x 2m, this product leaves a lot to be desired!

Oh well, the dogs need one for their cot. Sweet dreams!
