    Yes does take time to learn, but the payback is massive, so unless your planning to pack up taping within the few years i would learn to use a bazooka,roller,angle head in fact all the tapetech tools. Then watch the come rolling in.....

    youd also need to buy the tools :L and to fix them when they breakdown lol

    You don't sand the internals then?

    Do you think that anyone would get their auto taper out to do one room?

    your right stuart, i had the plastic corner former, its really good i thot, if it was slightly bigger , meaning 3 inch ,

    roll the joint cement on with a hairy corner roller , then applie corner former , iits quit good,

    as i say think it had too bit wider , but good for cubourds n tight areas, alsa sum 1 stole mine ,
