    Do you mean a corner bead hopper or one for spraying texture?

    I'm after one for the No-Coat beads. Seen the vids on Youtube and reckon it'll save lots of time.

    I did a quick search and this topic has been mentioned before if you click here.
    Your point about lying in the corner of the shed was a good one and has been my concern about buying one. I dont own one but have seen it used on a large commercial site with a squad of 4 men - that worked efficiently. But would be if it make any difference to guys that work on their own or in pairs?
    I will read any comments from members who have one in their toolkit because I have thought about buying one, but didnt for the same reasons as you.

    As a benchmark, just fitting standard corner beads around window ingoes and upright external corners I can cut and fit around 40 metres an hour. Will the hopper make my life any easier due to the extended time in filling it several times a day, and cleaning it out after use? I can see a benefit for awkward tapes on ceilings and bulkheads but .....

    like you dryliner8. I need convincing

    UPDATE - I've altered this thread title to make it easier to find in our ever growing mountain of topics.

    hello i had one and it ended up in the corner of the garage
    when we used it in houses we struggelt to positiond it and also sometimes
    the corner bead flips together not good for us plus you need to use ames,
    most of the time we use the aplicater tube {better then ever] or [tapepro]
    [or aplatech] with externel madaplicator [whithe plastic premier or trim ect]
    we put the mud on the plasterboard corner then stick flex tape low price job or paperbeads, didnt like nocoat or straigtflex best i found preformd paper beads.When the beads are stickt on we coat with fastset or bg filler
    then second coat,sometimes third coat.
