  1. Drywall Tools, Supplies and Equipment
    For years I've rolled, flushed and then coated with angle head, and never a glazer.  I'm in the market for a new flusher...I was just curious if anybody has used both and finds one better than the other...<br><br>Also, I hear good things about the tapepro flusher but they're $200 and I'm not...

    Can you use an angle head on the end of a pole like you would a flusher or do you need to use a box with the flusher.

    :thumbup1: This topic has been discussed before so thought we could put it to a vote and see which is the most favoured system. The poll feature only allows for up to 15 choices so couldnt list every size option combination. So basically it is Tin flushers and Mechanical angle heads and their...

    been using a tin flusher for years and running angles before finish coating everything, but now people are telling me they run their angles last with a mechanical flusher,, and i am just wondering why that is, when it tends to gouge into things it goes over and three ways tend to take 2 days to...

    I have been taping for 20 years and when I started I only ran angles by hand. Then about 5 years ago I started using a flusher because I was told it worked so well. I tried it for about 3 years and was never really satisfied with the results. The edges never really feathered out properly and...

    i tried it today. when i set my tapes yesterday i used my 3" BTE. i also rolled my corners first( first time using roller,awesome!). nice clean feathered edge(mostly). anyway today i quickly sanded down the edge of my angles along with the insides too. it didn't matter because it was just tape...

    Thought I would film how we do our angles, there's more walking but it's easier on the shoulders. We tape 1st with a Drywall master 2.5 mechanical angle head. Then we go with a 3.5 can-am or B.T.E 3.5 wiping head. The 3.5 can wear out after awhile, but they tend to last longer when performing...

    OK , I am not a cub but, I just recently purchased my first set of tools. I have used tools many times before but... I have a few questions. I am taping with a banjo. Before I got my new set of Drywall Master taping tools, I always set my angle tapes with a combo corner flusher and had decent...

    I use a road plow or angle plow in my corners. It seems as though I might be the only one on this forum who uses this tool instead of a flusher or glazer. It is very similar to what you guys call a flusher. The main difference is that my tool has a round wheel on it that creases the tape into...

    A question for you auto-tools guys. We use the auto-tools, but I have never had the opportunity to use a corner Flusher or an angle head. I'm looking at trying some out. When using them, would it be best to use a flusher first, after the tape has been applied and rolled, and then use an...
  12. Drywall Finishing
    I just got a betterthanever 3.5" corner flusher. I'm having trouble at the top of the corners. I'm either not able to set the tape good enough for the first 6" or the tape hooks and pulls down. I'm still having to use a ladder to fix them after I run the flusher. I was also having trouble with...
