    I bought couple drywall tools today due to all the good comments about Goldblatt.
    I am excited to use them in the next couple days. I am still debating which Inside Corner Trowel I gonna keep, the big one or the small one.

    I never did like those corner trowels. Not sure if it’s just that I never got the feel of using one, but I never got a satisfactory result.

    never tried a corner trowel. just seems kind of annoying since you have to mud the corner with a regular knife anyway then switch

    I was waiting for someone else to say what I was thinking. But then again I never really get much of a satisfactory result when I’m holding any kind of trowel.

    It is annoying. I bought one a while back but never use it. If you are careful, you can mud both sides of a corner without one anyway. They just seem to add another step…then you have to clean one more tool too.

    I usually used the corner trowel for the first coat and maybe the 2nd coat and then finished with a knife. They work fine once you are used to them. They help to push mud into the corner seam. I should say that I use mesh tape, so that might make a difference.

    I like the corner trowel myself. It’s faster to get a good looking/even corner for me.

    I use FibaFuse on the the flats and paper in corners because the FibaFuse rips horribly if you catch it with a knife while mudding the corner. I’m assuming a corner trowel would prevent this from happening.

    That sounds the same for me as well. Once I got used to it, I relied on it to get perfect corners.

    I can see how corner trowel would work pushing the mud into the corner seam.

    Got the final piece to the 17″ Drill Press I picked up from auction last month.

    The keys are in and it is now a complete unit that can be used.

    yah i learnt from @58chev and i find that it helps push the mud in to the corner really well, much faster for me then using a regular trowel to get nice even lines.

    I watched youtube like I always do when there is something new I never done before.
    Thats why I decided to get a corner trowel because it looks easy.
    And of course like you guys said it pushes the mud even and nice in the corner.

    Man seeing those keys brings back memories of always trying find them to change bits and tips on drills .

    Always willing to learn .

    I have used a corner trowel a few times. I made a big mess instead of the complete and utter disaster I got when just using a straight one. 🙂

    I suck at it either way.

    With those corner trowels, like all things joint compound you want a thin, even coat, so you do want to apply some pressure. Mud will gather on the outsides of your corner trowel and then you use your regular knife to scrape off the excess.

    Practice makes perfect.
