Anyone use this? Looks pretty fast and easy on the video's.  Going to help my son finish his garage walls and don't have days to get it done.

The self-adhesive drywall tape has been around for a long time. At least 25 years ago I talked to a drywall rep who was in the office updating catalogs and I asked about the fiberglass tape because I was getting ready to do some taping in a bedroom. What he told me was that they had seen very mixed results. Sometimes it worked just fine and other times they would see a small crack develop at one edge of the tape. At that point in time they couldn't find a common denominator for when it would fail, so they didn't recommend it's use. I did use it once on a small job at home and didn't have any issues, but never used it again because I never saw a pro use it on any project, commercial or residential. Because this information is REALLY old, it might pay to call one of the drywall manufacturer's tech support folks and ask them.

Stuff works just fine, of course I have been using it for over 25 years so I am pretty good at applying it. I use it because I just never got around to using paper which can be a real pain to apply. After you get a hang of using it you can also use it to do your inside corners but you still need to buy your outside corners. Make sure your walls are dust free when you apply otherwise it makes it hard to apply tape to wall. Be careful not to put creases in it when applying. I have seams done in my house that are well over twenty years and they look just fine.

Thanks guys for the feed back he went with paper tape. He said he thought the fiber tape worked best for repair areas?

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
