    Tony you were lucky, it was my introduction to taping, I had to do some snagging, and top internals for a machine taper, (dabbed walls, but concrete ceilings,which were just painted)

    I was given 5 minutes training and left to it. this stuff set like concrete, and I had to finish with this stuff, no joint cement. sand it, yeah right, thats probably why I didn't take up taping back then

    Once about 15 years ago and I remember the bloodshot eyes it gave us from sanding a ceiling.
    Did this gear have lime in it?
