    Using my 12" box the other day. It was fine when skimming over paper, but if going over dry mud, the one side of the blade dug in. Do I just back the blade off on that side? All my other boxes are new, this one I bought used and has seen better days. So I have no history with it, and haven't...

    The Columbia 180 Box Handle is by far my favorite and I recommend it to customers all the time. I like their block brake assembly vs. the Quadrant/Friction Disc and short connector set up that every body else uses because it doesnt damage the boxes like so (gash on the inside) anybody else...

    PA and I just finished a job for this guy, and PA sold some extra auto-tools he had laying around to him. When we helped him load them into his truck we got a look at his tool box. Pretty nice! https://plus.google.com/photos/108428194459667195597/albums/5752033576629130337?authkey=CInOusmN5I7l0wE

    Learned a new trick today. Skimmed some 8ft walls with a box. basicall went with the 12 up and down then moved over 11''s leaving a gap. Then after about an hour filled in the gaps. Will skim again tomorrow. So far it looks great

    I have a set of older tapetech boxes that I am trying to rejuvenate, I replaced the crown spring, blades and skids. When you look down the blade it is already past flat (crowned the wrong way) do I need to replace the blade holder or have I just installed something wrong. Any help would be nice
