just get cheap 12 inch and curve your self. corner or door frame hand on both ends of blade tap tap check and repeat if needed.... after months of use if its lossing curve repeat. nice rounded mill post works best. no need to spend anymore than a tenner just be careful not to pop rivert.

Nothing nicer than looking down a straight wall on a sunny day and seeing great humps every 1.2m because the taper used a curved trowel.

clearly you dont know half as much as u think. the right tools used in the wrong way will leave a bad job. nothing wrong with using a well set curved trowel for coating up. leaves perfect flat joint allowing for a little shrinkage. top with 12 box sun can shine as hard as it likes on my walls all you will see is perfect joint with crap plaster board ripples either side. board surfice worst part of the finish. you only show your self up by constantly posting poorly imformed derogitary tripe. why dont you go and learn a real craft and stop trying to turn our simple labour into something its not.

tony, i have been taping for 15 years and been using a curve for about 12 of them.
i also use machines when and where i can.
all my jobs are carried out to the same standard.
you are welcome to come on a job with me anytime to "school" me if you wish!!!

If you need to use a 22" trowel to get over the boarding you might as well skim it!
As for the curved trowel,I use one for first 2 coats, never for finishing. Surely your leaving yourself more material to sand.
