View Full Version : Finishing Steel External Beads

What's your preferred method of second coating and skimming metal 90 degree external corner beads?

There has to be a better way than by hand.

I've tried the Beadboxers on the 8" and 10" tapetech flat boxes but personally not much of a fan. I do a lot of house bashing, so they don't work the best round windows, mainly full 240mm lengths.

Is there anything out there similar to an inverted angle head for externals rather than internals than can be attached to the corner box?

All the tools out there are brilliant but there isn't much apart from Beadboxers to help speed up coating 90degree external angles.

You can get an attachment that goes on a flat box like a set of guide wheels, I saw a guy using once and it was too much messing about, still had to touch in top and bottom. I do mine by hand usually with a 10" blade.
