Anyone ever had metal that just does not nail on for sh.. I keep finding myself pinching it shut a bit before putting it on. This makes a hollow corner not good I am not pleased with this problem :mad: I think I got a bad batch what do you boys think about this? The metal seems to get thinner and thinner all the time too. I also use mesh over my metal to reinforce the metal to drywall.

I don't want to talk about bead...:( I just left the job [dentist office] to see how far along the hangers were .There was a stack of paper face leaning against the wall I gave up on counting em my guess is 650'...Looks like it's time for a hopper!
Yuck! A hopper or an external corner applicator for a CP tube. :thumbsup:

I've always installed no coat on my off angles by hand and just recently switched to the sticks for bead. I bought the no coat hopper and HOLY CRAP I was amazed how fast it goes. I had a little trouble at first with the paper flanges folding inside the bead and having to pull them apart as I was installing but I started bending the first 2 inches of the paper under the bead before running it through the hopper cant beat it. I used to hate running bead with metal. Now it's my favorite part. Keep a box of latex gloves with it cuz it is messy as hell.

I switch up between the paper faced metal and the no-coat / auto-flex < ( product I use ) I really like how No-Coat sits flatter on the rock. Just make sure that the sheetrock is brought together as flush as possible, as well as using more nails or screws then normal to make sure that the rock isn't floating or bulging.
