    Question Red Diamond 90 Inside Applicator


    Hey Guys .. Just wondering if anyone has used this and can give me any info on it

    http://www.belmoretools.co.uk/acatal...pplicator.html

    Is it Compatable with a normal Inside Applicator ( 7" Corner Box ) ?
    Does it Leave a Nice Coat on the Internals for applying Paper by Hand ?
    What consistency of Finish do you need to use .. ?

    .. At the Moment im using a Lambswool internel corner roller and sticking the papertape on by hand but its quite time consuming . I also tried coating the internals with the Butterfly ( Anglehead ) Turned Backwards , This semed to do the job not too ad till i hit a screw head and now its Broke lol.

    Thanks Again Guys

    The people I know who use these love them but they use it with a mud tube. The consistency they use is prob the same as your thin internal mix.
    Im going to give the homax banjo with the creaser wheel a go so will give my opinion in a couple weeks

    Looks like a really nice tool The Homax Banjo . I think the only thing that stops me buying it is the fact you need to cut the tape with your blade . Looks like a pain in the A$$.
    Im really thinkin of buyin the Red Diamond 90 Inside Applicator but i dont wanna have to buy the MudTube as well .. Im quite Short ( 5".5 ) and im now used to my Extendable Applicator : D . Looking forward to your Review Crack Filler .Thx again for teh Reply ; )

    cutting the tape is easy after a couple of goes. homax banjo and creaser wheel is great value. very good video on youtube by precision taping if you want to see them in action

    http://www.belmoretools.co.uk/acatal...tor_Heads.html This one by columbia is a bit cheaper and does the same job, in theory the red diamond would work as it fits on any of the corner boxes out there. The homax and delko creaser is selling like crazy! what a great tool it is too! very simple and easy to use and very few parts to go wrong.

    red devil is a great lile tool mate you need the mudtube for speed though and ideally a 2man squad one rolling mud other placing tapes and beding in then flush off/buterfly
    had mine couple year he only prob is the wheels wear down after 6month-year and are stiff for first house. 2men can internal a decent sized 4bedromm hous in abt 2hour ish.
    just make sure your mix is righ or youll have arms like popeye or it pissn all over floor.
