Spray your seals

1 / 9

Keep seals as good as new

We've had some people asking what we use to keep our automatic taping tools nice and lubricated. We recommend using a silicone spray on your seals and any moving parts. This helps keep everything moving smoothly and prevents your seals from drying up. This is a WD-40 brand of Silicone spray. Make sure to not use light lubricants like standard WD-40 because they will cause the seals to harden.

Ceiling mud

3 / 9

Tinted mud

When I mud my ceilings and especially when I apply a skim coat like here I usually tint my drywall mud a color. I find it helps me see if I've missed a spot and small patches that I might otherwise miss on final sanding ... A real pain when you find that out as your rolling your prime check! I know a number of others do this as well.

Create a make-shift dispenser

Quick tip when working with lots of No-Coat... Screw the box to the floor, this will prevent it from falling over or dragging as you pull the No-Coat out. Give it a try, works awesome.

Tape the end of the blade

Prevent cutting too deep

When I use my OMT to cut drywall, I tape the end of the blade off at 1/2” to make sure I don’t nick a pipe or wire immediately behind the drywall. Not that I’ve ever done that before...

Use the power of vibration

5/8” going up on the ceilings. Remember: whack the stud, not the rock.

Just out for a rip are ya bud?

Our guy Danny is back at it again. Not only can he run with a taper and fly on the flat boxes, but he can also rip drywall like a boss. Awesome job man.
