    Been using one for about 6 months now and love it knocks about an hour off taping a 3 bed house up. I use normal flex in it an had no comebacks, I use cement in it wipe them out with a corner roller then coat up with filler, basically by the time my mate has scrimmed the house I have cut the angle and got them on. A full hopper does about 4 rolls of flex

    Worth every penny, although mine was a freebie. Using USG beads and cement, easifill, and filler,(not all at the same time, but depending on how many beads I have to fix).

    I would purchase a compound tube with a bead applicator ,way more faster,just to much walking involved with a bead box,too much clean up .etc....surprised they even still make them when you can just make one your self.cut 2 V's in a bucket or mud box,stick a scrap bead through it to act as a guide ,pull up or down on the bead to control mud flow,simple but messy,,,,,,with bead applicator,you can cut and leave bead where it is suppose to go,come along with compound tube,load,stick,roll,scrap,done,move on to next one,not back and forth to damn bead box,walk walk walkwalk........think about it,here's a link

    Ask the memebers who have shops. I'm sure they'll do some deals.
    It's a good way to do it with the tube. recently changed to tube,app and roller method slashed loads of time of the angles.( makes it easier for beginners as well, It's doubled the lads pace on angles)
    never tried with a hopper. would the hopper be easier if up a scaffold or in tight spot?

    DMC - maybe worth looking at an outside corner roller save the fingers - sweet bit of kit Columbia one only 39.99 fits nailspotter or corner roller handle
    USG hopper currently 99.50

    Legend - couple of options better than ever tubes start from 58.40 then choice of app head either std plastic or red diamond upgrade starting from 79 -

    happy to talk anyone through available options

    Lastly apologoes for my absence latley no excuses just been so stacked but always a pleasure to be back amongst friends Cheers !
