Automatic and hand tools, sanders, stilts etc. What's hot and what's not.

    Default LOCUSRITE Corner Bead

    Real-Debrid



    Anyone had the misfortune to try LOCUSRITE Corner bead? Its utter cr*p, dont go near it. Bends and kinks the way the BG stuff went last year. If you're lucky, it will do for small windows but on 2.4m uprights its hopeless- AVOID.

    Never seen anyone try to use it as bead before

    It was one of the first no-coat like products brought out in the market many moons ago on this side of the pond. Too many problems with the product, like lifting or cracking. surprised it's still being made
