    Drywall mudding improvements

    I ran across a link for a drywall box and did some googling to see what it is. Sure wish I had heard of these back when I was doing it for a living, would save hours of labor...



    Corners ones sure work slick too...


    Looks like one could get setup with the pump, handles, a 10" box, a 12" box, and the 8" corner box for about $1,500 or so, but haven't really done much research as to quality/features of different brands.

    they make it look easy darreb but you know that mud weighs up in a box of any kind, and relying on a machine to spread it right will take some learning

    Oh I'm sure they do have to learn how to use it and the right consistency the mud has to be, but the pros that are doing it day in/out will pickup that in no time at all. I don't think they'd be practical for a part timer to use/learn, I have a hard enough time remembering old techniques between times I have to do it.

    Specialization, this is one reason I had doing mud, I know that a pro can do it in about 10% of the time it takes me, and my time is better spent doing things that I do well.

    Very cool tools.
