take the 3 inch head that is working smoothly and kinda compare the blades setting with the 3 1/2" tool and kinda compare if the blades look sharper than the others.

Sorry Bill, I missed this post. Yes they move really well in the frames, both sides.

I adjusted the skid blades a little higher in the front and it seems good.

How much do you press on these things? Until the centre bottoms in the joint, or do you just go by feel, and what looks good?

thanks!

I press em all the way in. They are made to pivot, so put em all the way in and run em.

On thing to check on Scott, is when you clean em, you have to make SURE you have ALL the mud cleaned out behind the hinge at the top(below the blades and underneath). If you don't they wont pivot(compress) as they should next time

I doubt you'll be happy using the same head 3 times on your tape. It'll built up too much. I use a 2.5 to bed the tape, second coat with a 3", and third coat with a 2"--but I'm a tool whore too

Saul,


I'm getting my tools for a new Canadian site with no tax and no shipping charge over $500.


They are at www.toolriver.ca


Highly recommend them, my shipment was fast... Could use a little more selection on their site, but I think its coming... Plus where is my free shirts!?!?!? haha
