Doing a project for a friend on a 1955 house. Any tips on how to tape this seem with the uneven ceiling drywall? A guy I used to work with would use shorter, multiple pieces of tape. Any ideas appreciated.

Prepack it with 20, pull it tight along the wall with the edge of the knife against the ceiling & then run your knife along the ceiling so the edge of your knife makes a corner in the mud you prepacked. Tape & plow it with an angle head as best you can. It'll turn out alright

Roller flusher tube.
I've yet to give it a go with the flusher. I've always run the pookie, corner roller, then plow with a glazier I pulled the wheels off of; that's just how I learned, however, I've seen videos of these flushers with the wheel behind them. I am intrigued, but not enough to buy one yet.. never seen one in person, but I have stared at the ceiling when I can't sleep at night and often wondered. Could there be a better way? Afterall, I spent my corner money on angle heads :)

How does it fare for you?
