    Has anybody used a 4" angle head for smooth walls, and if so what do you think of them? I've had a cheap 3.5" and hated it, thinking of buying either a tapetech 3.5 or a tapeworm 4.

    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
