Hey guys can you lend me your expertise? I want to put a short test on my web sight to weed out the hacks. Also it might be entertaining for tapers to test their technical knowledge. Can you help me develop some questions? Here is an example- Why do we allways put the next coat on bigger than the last?
So we dont need to blend and feather multiple edges & build up a deap edge thats difficult to sand off.
There is lots of talent on this forum I'm hoping to learn a handy tid bit aswell. Thanks for your help

What grit sandpaper do you use? What brand? Do you use stiltz? Do you have your own tools? Hack and trowl? Knives? Auto? Do you have a license? Vehicle? Do you like sheep?

Ask them

whats better,,, paper or metal bead:whistling2:

Is it necessary to pre-fill

do you prefer mesh or paper tape

do you find it better to check for defects before or after they prime

What's better, machine taping or by hand

How long would it take you to tape in a 10,000 sq ft house (provide some detail of house)

Which sheep look more cute, The white or the black ones:eek:

Ask them how many felonies they have.(NEVER ask what they are for!:blink:) When do they get their drivers licenses back? Are your tools in pawn for drugs or just to pay your bar tab? Are you willing to learn English?

Another possible thought is to maybe turn it around a bit, or turn it around a bit as well. Over and above your questions, have them try to list a few questions that they think should be asked of someone, if they were doing the hiring.

How many levels of finish are there?

Describe what it takes to reach each of them.

What's a high shoulder and how do you fix it?

How long does it take 20 minute hot mud to set up? :whistling2:

OMG!.....that can't be real....like seriously?...no way...
What weighs more!? A ton of bricks!? Or ton of feathers!?
Well duh
Everyone knows a ton of bricks weighs more because you need a heavy pallet to carry them and you only need a lightweight cardboard box to carry a ton of feathers :whistling2:

And yes I am joking...... I'm thick but I'm not stupid :D

Hahaha! That's hillarious! I never even thought of that. I guess that would be a pretty simple mistake for someone to make if they were just starting out.
