Jonah Gregg: Good tip for a DIY'er. As a contractor, I'd send the guy home to get his
Although, they do it more with stucco/plaster tools once you're east of the
(The painter is like, what the heck happened to my roller!)
Que14kt: Not bad--thanks.//Chuck
Wolf De Vallette: how did you dilute the compound? With what?
ital stal: a twelve inch power assist box is alot faster

djones8177: How bout a set of boxes
masw2011: we have a 1905 house with lath and plaster walls. in one room i tried this
method and it worked exellent. it smoothed out all the rough spots on a
aged plaster wall. of note because i added water to the compound i was told
to add in some welldbond. i completed the room two years ago and till this
day no shrinkage caused by watered down compound. nor is there any other
deficency. this was a great way to smooth out a wall and provide a classic
don7777s: did u say this on some other video too? well heck your the best at
everything, wanna take over as being my wife? ill put her in the office
lovesomecujo: sound on my computer is off so i cant hear what they are saying but im
pretty sure he is doin a skim coat. its done as a final coat. thin mud down
2 thick paint like consistancy, roll it on & wipe it all off. it fills in
any pock marks & covers edges. If u wipe all the mud off u barely have 2
sand. just maybe an edge here or there. skim coatting leaves the joint
super smooth. Check a video called Level 5 by BCDI. In this video he just
does the joints but a Level 5 is the entire surface
giodazip: This comment is for Myron, did you know a taper by the name of pickleey,
(don't know last name) he was originally from the city (NYC, Staten Island
to be exact) I know he moved to to your area for some time, actually a
little farther north, by Saratoga. He was using this method 30 years ago.
He also used a corner roller in the corners for the first coat. He's
probably deceased now as he was in his 60's 20 years ago when he was taping
for my father. Just curious.
James Hamilton: Oh and "Mr. Better Ways" you're a moron.
arod4505: haha nice work loser
Chris Duet: Great!!!
dynocompe .: the shrinkage would occur as soon as its dry, not years later. When its dry
there is no water left in it, its evaporated, hence why its dry. duh
7Neanderthal7: that's capitalism at its best matey
don7777s: Can I do it? yes am I the best? no... All I am saying is I see so many of
these videos and they always have some guy on them downing their work... in
this case your that guy. Be nice about it. Be like, interesting why to
finish but I have always done it this way( whatever way that might be)...
also if I was able to know who you were I'd never hire someone that goes
around putting others down all the time. it's just not cool
crabber62: Too much water in the mud = shrinkage = bad job!
olimpimpa: This is wrong.. First.. i can do this faster without a helper going in
front spreading the mud. second: theres nothing better then using a 12 inch
knife to spread the mud... thats the only way you could level the joint
just in case u didnt do it in the first coat or float.
don7777s: Dude your unstable and shouldn't have a job, I am wondering how I am a
dipcrap and a asswipe. I don't even do drywall for a living :-/ nor did i
claim to, I can do it good I am just not as fast as the so called pros. you
should get help buddy
MrToddG123: Thinning the mud too much gives you a weaker mud..DIY people should follow
mixing instructions on the bag or pail instead of wannabe out of work
accountants tips....This is what low bidders do and why you should Never
take a lowest bid..Federal government has learned from Hundreds of
thousands of contracts and Always throws out the high and the low
bids...There is a Reason for it and Homeowners can learn from that
Gerry Irwin: Thanx 4 the tip. I've been a house builder and/or renovator for over 30
years and I have never seen anyone roll on the finish coat; I think it's
brilliant!. J Ham needs to realize that, not everyone is a mudder; lots of
guys ,like me, only mud about once a month and said trick could really
help. Yes I know what J. Ham is getting at; contractors insist on speed and
perfection. But...for us casual mudder we need all the help we can get.
Thanx again and I'll try that next time.
PrairieDogster: Just tried - seems a lot faster, at least for this DIYer. Haven't tried
this variation but seems to me you could use one of those small rollers - I
think they are 4-inch, to roll in the mud for for laying the tape?
James Hamilton: This is the wrong way to do a finish coat. It's slow, messy and
unnecessary. I could have don't that joint 3 times in the time he took to
do it once. Use one tool for the job, don't switch from a roller to a
knife? Hawk And 14 inch trowel is all you need to finish a bevel joint.
This guys a hack, I'm embarrassed for him.
Jason Price: How's it work on the ceiling it must drip
Joe Esqueda: freaking awesome! nice!
TurboDLT: crap i could do it by hand faster not that roller....stop smoke-ing the mud
and go get an office job....
TurboDLT: What you need to realize is that good hard working people like me have to
put up with DIP-crapS!!! like you....that is the freaking PROBLEM...."ASS
TurboDLT: Look, "JACK ASS!!!"....You don't know crap about Finishing Drywall so freak
TurboDLT: Yep, my "rooster" is so big i couldn't freak your mom so i LET MY DOG freak
HER!!! ASS WIPE!!
