    Best household item to roll dynamat with

    I don't want to buy an expensive roller made specifically for this reason... I know theres some sort of common cheap household item laying around that would work perfectly but I can't think of it.

    Do you guys have any experience rolling dynamat with anything other than the rollers made for it?

    Last time I installed dampening material I went to home depot to see if they had anything similar and the employees told me no. Doing it with hands hurts.

    The ones I've seen from dynamat are like 15... where at the same time these suggestions are basically free. Lol


    Thanks everyone!

    picked up a shity wallpaper roller for 1.99 at a local Ace Hardware, having the right tool does make the job much easier/more enjoyable.

    I use an old skateboard truck with a wheel for large areas and a wooden spoon to get in the tight areas. I also have a laminate roller that I use sometimes, but the skateboard wheel gets a majority of the work.

    Are you suggesting the 2 dollar roller wasn't the right tool?

    I use a laminate roller with a spray paint can top. Works really good unless you get the top too hot then it deforms a little and then you just need another one.

    oh no, I meant it made a great deal of difference, versus installing several square feet with my thumbs and the back of a box cutter. The cheapness of the roller was noticable and needed a bit of TLC to keep it working but it works great now.

    I really like the idea of using a skateboard truck and wheel

    I used a small paint roller with the foam removed. That made it about 1/2"x2" for less $3.
