Returning once again for the Fall event, galaxG tools was featured at the Portland Home and Garden Show that took place from October 1st -4th at the Portland Expo Center. With both the FREEHAND Pro and the new FREEHAND Touch on display, galaxG tools quickly became a hit at this season’s show.
If you missed your chance to come out and meet us at the Portland event, galaxG tools will be at the Lane Country Home Show in Eugene, OR this weekend (10/9 – 10/11).
Since its release in 2014, the galaxG FREEHAND PRO has been helping both professional painters and at-home DIY enthusiasts enjoy a pain-free painting experience. After receiving numerous testimonials from satisfied customers, we wanted to share some of their experiences to help get the word out about our FREEHAND product line.
"I owe an apology to everyone whose house I painted before using the FREEHAND PRO. I can paint cleaner lines and faster with the FREEHAND PRO than I can with a brush alone." -Bud Herzberg, Bud's Painting
"After 22 years using the same techniques, the first half hour using the FREEHAND PRO felt different, but I expected that. After only one hour it began to feel very natural and by the end of the first day, I was hooked and I've never looked back." -Gary Christian, Gary Christian Painting
"The FREEHAND PRO has made me take even more pride in my brushwork and that is what painting is all about." -Jeff Carson, JCI Inc.
“I have used your product, FREEHAND PRO for the last week and a half (about 20 hours of painting). Just an excellent product, I can cut straighter lines faster and because of the angle that you're holding Pro at you have a better view of your work. The best new product I've ever tested. Just bought a second one. Have a great day.”
- Joe Callahan
We also recently heard from Bev, another happy FREEHAND PRO owner. Having suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome, painting could quickly become painful after short periods of time. Take a minute to watch a video she recorded about her experience with the FREEHAND PRO:
With such an overwhelmingly positive response to both the galaxG FREEHAND PRO, along with the original FREEHAND DIY, we are once again expanding our signature FREEHAND product line. This summer we are proud to introduce the FREEHAND TOUCH.

galaxG tools of Portland, Oregon launches its Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign to raise capital and awareness for its new product line.
Birth of the galaxG tools
Three years ago while painting his home, Portland industrial designer Greg Freuler developed a mild case of carpal tunnel syndrome. He decided he needed to buy a comfortable paint brush no matter the price. To his amazement, he found it did not exist and he decided to do something about it. He spent nearly three years perfecting the design and now the galaxG Comfort Grip Pro and galaxG Counter-Gravity™ System are just a few short months away from hitting store shelves Worldwide.
"We couldn't be more thrilled with the final design and the response from the painting industrial has been overwhelming," says Freuler, President of galaxG tools™. "We launched our products at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas in May, expecting initial skepticism, but found only praise. The products really struck a chord with the industry."
