pretty satisfied with the 3 myself, I do run tickr mud
Lately, I've been running the 2.5 DM followed by the 3.5 NorthStar. After re-setting the blades on the 2.5 I was very surprised at how well it coated the tape :)

What is all this "rinsing" you speak of? I don't "rinse" my tapeing head. The only time I need to stick it in water is in the summer to keep the mud wet.

Maybe it's something you're doing?

I gotta say, now that I have the blades dialed in, I get excellent coverage with very little to no spill-over with this 2.5 DM.

Same here. I taped with 3" heads for 30 years or so. The 2 1/2" will cover the tape much better than any 3".

Will do !:thumbsup:

Kool I just went to You tube and seen the angles being flushed by 2bjr, a TT video also

a couple other guys doing angles,

I have cleaner look than what I seen out there, not saying I am the best and or right, but my angles look better than what I seen, being a clean freak is what I am, how ever I get non repair angles also

Love to see your guys ways at her though:thumbsup:

I just leave my stuff in water for the most part. If I'm taping my flushers and rollers just sit in a bucket of water until I need them. When I finish my job I clean em up and put them in a little tool bag that holds all my corner tools. Any flushers, rollers, CP tube attachments, angle box, angle heads etc..
