Why can't plasterboard makers not make a bevele in the back of the board so when the butt is screwed it pulls it in a little bit??
That would solve a lot of problems for us guys!!

I think the primary reason they don't do anything to the butt ends is because that's where you need to cut them...any tool that works on a butt is going to have be used post cutting. Hmmm.....maybe I should make my millions by being the guy that figures out the butt-into-recess problem.....

Looks like I dodged the bullet on that one pardner!

The rolled edge trade secret deal....they wouldn't want us to see how they're f*&%ing up the recesses these days now would they.....High shoulders, recess on the back, recess too hollow, recess too brittle....good lord the list goes on and on!

Re: Butt Joint Tool


are you talking about 1/2 " board,that stuff is gettin pretty poor these days.Back when we did a lot of houses we would brownside the shower backs and sides with the bevel covering flange ,thus making drywall lay flat. Never understood why guys routered that out around flange then hot mud/tape. Also if doing a good size room with frp you can hang drywall backwards(brownside)and drywall lays flat,no need to fill recess

Re: Butt Joint Tool


I have just had an opportunity to try the Rebate Mate and I have to say that they are the easiest butt joins that I have ever coated.
http://www.wallboardtools.com.au/news.htm#rebate
This tool will change the way that we do butt joins. For me it is ideal as we hang and tape, so I dont have to rely on a hanger to get with the program.

Here is a pic of a taped join. I was going to call it a butt join but I guess that it is not really a butt any more.

Hey Gaz, does it take long to rebate and glue the edge? I presume it would be quicker to tape and finish once it's up.

Re: Butt Joint Tool


No it doesnt take long at all. Our sheets are delivered laying down so that gives us a head start. The actual cutting and glueing of the rebate takes about 2min. We done the amount that we needed then put the sheets aside for a couple of hours for the glue to set. Definitely quicker to tape and finish. Just treat it like any join and box it.

Re: Butt Joint Tool


Gday Lloydnz
I broke the join between the battens. Cleatet three short ceiling battens across the join to keep it level and then back blocked when we did the rest of the ceiling. They are only just out now,Wallboard tools is the distributor and they are around the $440.00 Au. I know that they are planning on selling to NZ asap so keep an eye out.
