If you run it on the blade it will not leave much mud - bit like a nail spotter.
If you run the tube closer to the wall you will pivot the blade off the wall and it will run on the plastic guides. You can control how much mud is applied by the angle you run it at.

Cheers,
Tom.

I would go tape pro as they will fit any size mechanical head,My mudrunner has been sitting in a bucket of water for the last year after I got the tape pro tube!
But today decided it needed some loving and washed it and oiled it,fitted a new tube, so think I will give that a go again as my 2.5 bonehead has went awol!
So b 3 or 3.5 now for finish!
It was great on the tube for finishing angles!

Re: mud bead


The Columbia mud tube has screws you have to remove to clean out.
