Never been used, still in plastic. Sells at home depot and lowes for $50 dollars, but mine is cheaper! Works great for paint jobs, and craft projects. I had one, but couldnt find it, went and bought another one, and in accordance to murphys law, I found the 1st one the very same day, and just never bothered going to get a refund for the new one. So you get it $24.00 dollars cheaper than I paid.
