What r u putting on?
What r u using 2 put filler on the corners?
What roller u using? Not that should make much dif as they r all designed to push the mud out from behind the bead!

Hi am useibg the bags of knouff ready mix the roller am useing is the sheetrock 90 degress roller then i first fillvwith knouff filler but th amount of excess in my mind is a lot am spending more time taking the excess off then hav to drop bak to fill out.were if a was useing th filler a very weak one then i could use the excess to fill th beads out only worry there if it sets in hopper

I use the same one, I just muck up the corner push on the bead then roll, no need to scrape off the excess just coat it up.

if ur using standard flex tape ie wondertex arrow ect best use a tape tech roller that made for that type of flex. other rollers tend to be for no coat staitflex type of bead. its super simple just put a inch wide 2-5 mm thick wipe of filler use a 5-6 inch knife put flex tape on pinch very slightly and maker sure its on square and top corners meet up and are flush.. then roll and coat up. trowle for two coat or 6 inch knife if its first of three. u want ur filler not super thick esle will give issues. if u find it hard...i recommend the job center;) or just knife in old skool its quicker if ur skilled big IF

As Tom said but I do like my roller if the boarding it good, as for quicker it might be by traditional method but the roller is deffo easier if you have the old arthritis in your thumbs like me. Where is the nearest job centre ;)

I'm still trying to figure out if it's flex or what that ur putting on with a sheetrock bead roller!!

umm dont really understand why you think the tape tech roller its shit. i dont need to UP MY GAME ffs. i get a well filled out square angle from using flex tape. trim tex i would consider for the extra strength on up rights but not for the 2 2m i get on site. i live in a house with flex tape on all outside angles there is no problem. its super simple flex and roller like i said i wipe in by hand at the mo. dont get a problem... happy sad i just take the simple route that keeps me sane.

No mate I just keep it in a bucket of water and after each use just give it a quick spin, you know like rolling a sausage between your palms. I also made a smaller handle for mine which is a lot easier for windows ect.

tried some plastic beads belmore had up for 35 for box of 2.4 lenghts. thought they were shit! looked them up online as my method of sticking them on with filler and coating up was crap. they dont stick back firm and the holes in the plastic dont work. turns out your ment to fcuk about with glue spray AND staple the living jesus out of them. crap over complicated american bullshit of the first order. i would use the no coat type bead and some staitflex types fair enough. if jesus was glued and stapled to the cross their would be no easter eggs that sheet wearing hipster would of never got off the cross.
