Here at MacPaint, one of the most useful tools in a painter’s arsenal is the 5-in-1 painter’s tool. Implied from its name, this tool has multiple functions. First, the sharp straight edge is ideal for scraping old paint and removing high spots, much like a putty knife would. The pointed edge is useful for cleaning and widening out cracks before filling them in. The side is used to open paint cans, while the handle can be used to securely close the lid on paint cans. Lastly, the curved side is used to squeegee excess paint from rollers before rinsing them off. Some painter tools include a hole in the middle of the tool which is used to pull nails from walls. This is just one of the many tools that our painters here at MacPaint carry with them to get the job done right.
