    Hi Dillon we have the 3.5 standard flushers in stock, if your handle has the flusher perm fixed and has small white roller wheel then sorry wont fit our flushers and sounds like you have an original roll plough, these are no longer available. To be fair the new better than ever system is a bit better as have more options but you will need to take the plunge and buy a handle (sorry!) give me a buzz will sort you some T & J forum Discount !

    Same for every forum memeber always a deal at Belmore for members!

    well got it tried it and its sort of Ok it coats a bit tight for my liking but apparently they slacken off with use and then apply a thicker coat so I will stick with it and see, Im also contemplating getting the aplication tube or seringe because it means a lot less trips to the bucket.

    I use my flusher when putting up the internals and then again when coating up so it gets 2 coats ish but its a bit thicker.

    What do you use to apply muck and tape, do you roll the tape or use a roll plough.

    I use a painters corner roller to put gear on and roller it out. I didn't get on with the syringe thingy but only gave it 20mins. Have seen them used very successfully.

    I use the corner box its loads better than a roller but requires a lot of trips to the bucket, I saw the Mudrunner being used the other day WOW that was quick but 500 touch, I have also seen the seringe used properly and that is just as fast but harder work. Also saw a nail spotter being used properly today and that made it look very easy too.

    Yeah I use a nail spotter and know mud runners, boxes and mud pump are faster but I'm old and stuck in my ways a bit.

    Really getting the hang of this flusher and I have to say Im wondering how I managed with out it, I found the bes way for me is to put muck up the internal using the corner applicator, then the tape then I use a roll plough to bed the tape, it looks pretty good even then but I know it sinks back too much. Once thats had time to set off (overnight is best) I again aply muck the the corner applicator then use the flushed to finnish. Finally I go round and tidy up the corners using my old faithfull corner trowel. The only thig is it does leave quite an edge which you can trowel off but the sander seems to cope with it quite well also.

    Next move for me is I think I will hire a Mudrunner to see how I get on with it or go for the syringe.

    It's funny, we have gone back to doing the final coat on the screws by hand because we believe that the nail spotter leaves a shit finish. The lines are too defined, even after sanding. As for the syringe, don't get me started on that POS.

    Ok Tony so how do you do your internals one side at a time. Sure a nail spotter leaves a line but so does a joint. I saw a guy using the syringe and was well impressed the same as when I first saw a bazooka being used. Mind you I have also seen a bazooka being used badly and it didnt look so impressive.

    I love my nail spotter haven't had a problem. Really struggled with the syringe but have seen it work brilliantly and clean. Me 20mins half a bucket of gear on the floor. We all have our different little ways hopefully to the same outcome.
