hey scottyboy,if its the blue boxes i think, they will be speed tape ones, dont go near them,bloody murder trying to get a job of them,i take it corner tool is a butterfly,for that price would have to be nearly new or little used,and tapetech bazooka would cost about a grand new,so as long as its in right good condition should be alright.as for boxes,i use speed tape gold ones and their fine but blue ones are put together differently and are poor.

You shouldnt presume all blue boxes are made by Speedtape, I think Goldblatt manufacture theirs and i didnt like them either. I have a blue 8" box from Premier Drywall in my toolkit and its a great box. Its over 20 years old and I prefer it to the other branded boxes.

its 150 for the corner tool and the boxes or 500 with the bazooka just no handles .

If they are in decent nick,it doesn't sound too bad a deal to me...
