  1. General Drywall Discussion
    Please refresh my memory. About 10 years ago I was working for a finishing company that required the finishers to install their own bead. I haven't seen it since and I think it would be prefect on the job Im on now. It came in long boxes. We would cut it to length everyplace it was needed...

    Just got my Blue Line corner bead roller this week, and its a really nice roller. The only down side was it is too narrow to work with USG B1 super wide bead. Being that's all that is stocked in my area I had to modify it slightly to work. All it took was adding a 1/4" spacer to move the roller...

    Okay I have a question about stapling plastic bull nose bead. I have always either nailed or used 1" narrow crown staples or glued my plastic bull nose bead. I have also used probably 10 boxes of hydro bead. You know the stuff you spray with water and wait then stick to the corners. My...

    We've been having a lot of interest in Australia with Trim-Tex's Rigid Adjustable Outside Bead that adjusts between 120 - 150 degrees and is also available in the Mud Set range and as an inside bead. Contractors see it as a great solution to irregular angles and poor framing as the bead flexes...

    Well the metal corner bead the homeowner had came in handy after all. I asked him to get some "shiny 90" as we call the metal angle and he got the heavier gauge that wont take screws. He had this metal corner bead so we put it to good use.

    A number of times on DWT I have seen blokes post that metal bead always cracks unless you do strange things like put m**h down the edges. And I have wondered why that is. Then I recently seen the pics that Joe from Trim Tex uploaded comparing beads. When I seen the metal bead in the pic I then...
