My question is, am I just being a tool whore if I buy a compound tube when I have these other tools? Also can I do externals with a mudrunner and tapepro applicator head?
I have both Mudrunner and compound tube. The Mudrunner sits, while the cp tube goes with me everywhere. Just how things best work - for me.

Re: bazooka vs compound tube


Finally got a compound tube, had a job with a few rooms of cornice so bit the bullet and got a tapepro with a 55mm cornice head and I am rapt with it. Did 20 lengths in 1 go and got a really clean finish. We have just started using mudset beads at work so andrew from wallboard tools in Melbourne was kind enough to lend me a few different applicator heads to try out and and a tapepro 600mm compound tube. Very impressed with the manta ray and flat bead heads with the various mudset beads and the short tube is awesome so looks like I have a big spend coming soon. Also anybody looking for cheap tapetech tools call intex they are clearing it all out, I got an external,internal and obtuse mudheads for $80 each and a 4inch utility box with handle adapter for $230. They had about 20 mudrunners in stock so should be able to score 1 cheap

Which paper bead do you use? Metal or vinyl?

Sheetrock metal!!
Not often but I have seen it do some funky chit if there is some movement!!
My fathers house has them all offering to crack round 2 skylight things!! The metal looks like it's getting pushed out but they r not slack or bos!
Rest of the house was done with TT beads that Joe sent me and it's perfect!

Yes you can do externals with runner and external head and you might be surprised what a flat L trim mudhead on a mudrunner or cp tube can do as well if you get negative detail trims to install.

I love my cornice heads on the cp, No way would I be without one now they are fantastic.

Funny how what works for one not so good for others, Its all job dependant at the end of the day isn't it.
I second this!
