This is a great tool that want to eliminate butt joints in drywall and cement sheet. On drywall it does this by removing about 3mm of rock from just under the paper face. The paper face is folded back to alow the aplication of glue then pressed down in place.
On cement sheet the rebate is formed by grinding and removing some of the face of the sheet.
Both of these tasks are accomplished without dust thanks to a vacume attachment.
This tool fills a niech for those that do the whole drywall process from start to finish.

This is an awsome tool, Makes great rebated edges, Turns butt joins into flats seams, Allows more mud in the butts, Helps use up scrap board, Just make a rebate edge on it, I was lucky enough to use one on my own house.
If you want perfectly flat butt joints, the Rebatemate is the solution.
Not only does it turn a butt joint into a tapered edge, but this in turn gives you a much stronger joint since you now have the ability to bed it deeply in compound (which with typical butt joints amounts to giant humps in the wall).
I love the way the joints coat out after using the Rebatemate. Seriously.
