can you suggest a roller handle to go with the Jen 3 inch foam roller covers?

WEST System 801 Heavy Duty Roller Frame works fine with any foam roller covers. If you are using these for varnish or paint on vertical surfaces I would use the yellow foam rollers. These Jen rollers are a little thick and soak up more varnish/paint than what is necessary. The yellow ones are thinner and provide a better, even distribution with less material waste and less chance for runs/sags.
If using totalboat product with thinner, DO NOT use these
Foam separated from core. Used 8 rollers just to do a 7x12' area. Couldn't keep a line, wasted paint, and messy.
Roller foam falls off with short exposure to TotalBoat prime
I purchased a box of 24 (the number on the bar code label of each roller is 82826 00033 - see photo) to use with TotalBoat primer, bilge paint, and topside paint. The first spread the primer very well, but soon (5 to 8 square feet or so) began to loose its foam, starting where the foam is joined. The next two disintegrated faster - after rolling a few sf. I was not overly heavy handed. I rolled out thinly, as instructed.I imagine that they will do fine with latex house paint, so I can use them OK. Quality seems OK, but not for use with the solvent in TotalBoat primer. That leaves the question of how to apply the primer. So it's down to the hardware store and try out whatever they have.Thoughts, Jamestown? Thanks

Great bang for the buck!
I have used Poly-Rollers by JEN for over 15 years.In addition to the applications listed in the product description I also find they are extremely useful for sticky, messy jobs like bottom paint and epoxy.The rollers do react and break down when used with these products but the price is so much lower then the rollers recommended for bottom pain and epoxy that I find it a better value even though I go through 2 or 3 in the course of a job. I've had very good luck with these rollers and can highly recommend them. Just replace with a fresh one as soon as any signs of deterioration is noticed.
State of the Art rollers for Oil
I have had a sign shop for over 30 years and there is no better way other than spraying oil paint to MDO board or any other smooth surface. The trick is rolling it on really thin once and then go over lightly to smooth out bubbles and orange peel. Add second and third coats to end up with glass like finish!

I'm laminating floor joists with 3/4" OSB and using Gorilla glue. I purchased the 3" wide roller covers as a disposable item, and I'm very happy.
