Re: boxing beads

I love the boxes but have never been happy with the results on bead, aside from long bulkheads. First coat with a box is inefficient for two reasons. First, boxes like thin mud which takes to long to dry on a fill coat. I like to hit the bead with a six or eight inch knife and thick mud first coat to avoid shrinkage and drying issues. Second, even the fat boxes empty out to quickly on first coat, which means a lot of trips to the pump. How have you been doing them up till now?
