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

    Default Corner applicator and finisher

    drywallschool.com

    Hi guys I've bought one of these about an year ago every time I use it it rips or drags the paper. I've used it again today with the same problem. As I'm a plasterers by trade I don't tape and fill every day but I like having the tools to speed things up. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers

    Are you rollering the corners after you put your paper tape on?

    Hi skim what make/brand finisher is it? Most come out of the box a little sharp and will bed in/round off over time, if you're not using it that much will take longer.

    Blades can be grinded or filed down to give a less sharp edge to speed this up, if you need some advice on this just let me know.
