Fire break boxing and stanchion boxing, seriously time consuming, and we had to get it right ready for the ceiling (note squared of ends to the knees either side of the boxing), and when jointing it took 2 rolls of flex, (bead for our brothers across the pond and down under:D) 66 metres or 72 yds to do that

Hand taping Brian?

Yes at the moment, not had enough to go at in one hit to make it worth getting the machines out.
When II do the big Jumbo wall in the middle, I run the boxes

See Moore, that's the type of work you should be lining up, commercial work. As soon as a sheet of drywall goes on, they want some mud on it right away. There are times when it's not worth pulling out the tools on those sites. Most of the time it's tape it, coat it, skim it and sand it the next day b/c the painter will be here.

And don't worry EK taper, no machine vs hand here, To me the crime is a machine taper that can't do things by hand, Ive seen that before, and that's a SIN in my books

I thought you were a hill billy Moore, not a red neck:w00t:

Hand taping is still strong in the states and canuck land. It's when you get into the residential market that machines kick in, (in general) It's a must in some markets if you want to survive in this racket:p
