    They would soon get the hang of it if they were to tape their own work.
    Otherwise ask them nicely once, then send them a bill for time spent knocking them in if it happens again. Ive had broken angle heads and walked off jobs because of this.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.

    A good boarder would check his screws. My Hilti self feed gets in there pretty well.

    i used to follow a right bunch of idiots. i nicknamed them the clonkers cos every time i ran the corner roller down it goes clonk clonk clonk. they soon got the message although it did cost me a new finisher blade along the way.

    I started a large house today, and spent an average of 10 minutes in each room putting the screw heads in. This was in 4 beds, 4 ensuites, the landing and the loft room which was 14mx7m. This was only on the ceilings and as far as I could reach down on my stilts as the ceiling height is appx 2700mm. This really rips my shit. I'm hoping the client will ask me to board the ground floor as the builder is busy, because this isn't funny.

    Knocking screw heads in is one of my pet hates on site. Like you all say, how f*$%ing hard is it to drive them home properly?
    I once totally lost it on a 4 bed house recently, after knocking in about 20 screws per bedroom I moved into the hall- same again- dunt dunt dunt.
    That was it. I launched the hammer thru the gyproc while standing in the middle of the room shouting "F***ING BAS***DS!!!! AAAAARRGGH!!!!" in a tantrum reminiscent of the angry man from Chewin The Fat.
    I have bust angle heads too and Tony is right, its not funny. I dont bother with my nail spotter either as I'm fed up replacing the blade.
    no wonder i take a drink

    this old chestnut, when borders rush through and leave them hanging out, or when they just screw into nothing and leave about 4 screws sitting next to each other its the most annoying thing ever! One of my old bosses used to charge for putting them back in, which they really did't like but they got the message.

    if you can not do anything, use a hammer. Funny but it works (quickly and efficiently.) Nobody cares about stupid screws, and even less about your equipment.
