I am currently finishing a project which I am spraying. I use painters’ pyramids and have been having problems with smaller pieces sliding off them or the air from the jet I use to blow dust off the project piece blowing the pyramid onto the floor, etc. I saw this and wondered if it is worth the money. I know that I could drive screws through a board, but those aren’t always in the correct location. Does anyone have a VersaSpin? Do you like it? Is it just another gimmick? Any other suggestions? Thanks for any input.

I used my 18 ga. pin nailer and shot some 1-1/2 pin nails through a 1/2 inch chunk of ply … then on another board used some shorter ones … works great … much more stable than the little pyramids. ... but handle carefully.

Art,
Those grabbers on the pyramids look like they might have a good product.
I like the fact that it spins which is usually where I dump stuff over.
I’ll look forward to your review when you buy it.
Bob

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner! Mike, that is a great solution! Thanks for sharing. I will make a couple nail boards tomorrow. :)

Thanks, Bob, but based on Mike’s suggestion, I won’t be buying one.

Hi Art. Late again as usual. I think Mike has the right idea. most of the gimmicks/gadgets you see you usually can make your self. Sorry I ‘m slow on the draw.

Art, I too use the brad nails/plywood but be careful or you will easily scratch/dimple uncured finish. I added a lot more brads which seems to help by distributing the weight over more points. My boards look like a mad porkupine now!

I also made a 3’x3’ “turntable to spray my chairs using an old disc blade, some tubing, and some plywood. I love it.

Mark, you are too busy making stuff and taking pix and posting blogs, etc. :)

Andy, I made mine with the brads on 3” centers and used it today with no issues on small pieces, but I can always add more brads if I find problems with larger pieces. I will try it with non-show sides first. Thanks for the tip.
