Re: Columbia nailspotter +straitflex


Whats up with straightflex anyway, I've used it for many years but I've had some bad rolls over the last 12 months or so, it cracks/splits near the centre when I fold it in half, not the whole roll just the occaisional patch here and there.....very brittle.

Re: Columbia nailspotter +straitflex


looks good. I would do the screws from top to bottem, don't stop short from reaching the floor, joint, or ceiling. Then you don't have to sand the top or bottem edges that you know the pole or sanding machine doesn't always catch. Thats the part you need to sponge by hand.

I wonder if it's because your running old box blades in your spotter, and not the actual nail spotting blades....

Just wondering

I may be on the wrong track but I think he said he was using Straight flex, not being a paper product it can be a bit tougher. I definitely prefer no-coat though.
