Hi all im currently taping by hand but have decided to upgrade to some proper tools
I tape with a haulk n trowel 8" and because this type of gear is so expensive
Im hoping to buy a bit at a time so am I better to get a 10" box
Or a12" box for finish and still first fix with the trowel also do I get the fatboy
Model or just normal also whats the best size of handle for the
Box? And make ? Most of my work wall size is 2.5m.

Thanks scotty

If your ceiling height is 2.5 then the short handle will be fine.

Short handle is 34", which is what I use.
Get a 12" box first to make your finish coat easier and quicker. I've never used the fatboy box so can't give you a heads up on that one!
I use the TapeTech boxes and got no probs with them

Get the fatboys mate,a lot bigger than some...ie premier....and pretty bomb proof. Worth the extra few bob for the time you save imho...
