Now I know why I dislike hot mud...


I used hot mud years ago when I was starting out in the taping world and nevered liked it. Stopped after the first project house. I have been using the Green Bucket for years and nevered looked back until today. Awwgggg....Now I know why I dislike Hot Mud. You need electricity, an extension cord, 1/2 drill, mixing wand, clean empty buckets, water, water & more water for cleaning buckets, and a good laborer to mix up a good & consistant mixture, and more water to clean of tools at the end of the day. No more, I am not using hot mud anymore. What was I thinking?? How do you guys that like it get used to it?? So much crap you need for this type of compound.

I suppose that you could add your water and mix it up with one of those potato masher things if there was no power. But who wants to work without a radio anyway. I'd say wait to tape until the power is on!

Re: Now I know why I dislike hot mud...


patches and repairs. i second that. if i need it to last more than 20 minutes i don't even like using it. i usually just mix by hand in the bottom of a bucket with my six inch. that gives you an idea of how much i use at a time. i HATE cleaning it off my tools and cleaning my buckets and just generally farting around losing the time i just saved. but it does have its place and i use hotmuds all the time. almost everyday.
