    Hey Maaaaannn. No Coat is great stuff but it's cost prohibitive. It has a really sharp corner and saves gear, but at appx 1.11 a metre ( 33-36 a box) it's too dear.
    The Usg beads are the bollocks in my opinion. Roughly 50p a metre, got a waxy rounded corner that won't fur up on sanding. The USG beaded flex works out at about 58p a metre and is like a heavy duty flex tape with a braided hinge, but in 3 mtr lenghts. Goes through the hoper lovely and so does the No-Coat.

    Here you go Mr Jones.
    USG B1W fixed with Joint filler and immediately over coated with 8" taping knife


    Same bead fixed with Joint Cement. Leave to dry and then coat up with 1 coat Joint Filler or Easifill, and 1 coat Joint Cement.


    USG Beaded Flex fixed with Joint Cement


    How awkward are these window reveals?


    BTW, That's not my boarding.
