Any tips on breaking them in. I have 3 of them and there sh1t.
Right well when brand new they are bang on 45degrees I squeeze mine in a bit so when I use it I apply slight pressure to (example) ceiling angle first then the wall after (providing of course its a wet angle)

I always put full rooms on marshy so always work wet angles.
Its just the marshalltown angle tool I don't like.
i prefer the gyproc :)
Each to their own pal and at the end of the day if somebody can do a spot on job even using an egg cup and spoon?? It doesn't matter ?? I know what your saying and for me m/TS are bit wide and need squeezing in a bit :RpS_thumbup:

Bloke I used to work with called it a 'gazinta' as in gazinta the corner!!!! Got to make sure you get the right marshaltown 'twitcher' the M23D which is 103 degrees and flexes down to 90 degrees, they do one which is 90 degrees and that's useless.

They dont warp because by the very nature of the trowel you do not have to apply hardly any pressure,
I been using these for a long time and apart from the one i dropped (and fooked right up) there bullet proof.




Bit of a contradiction in terms there me old mucker!

I dropped my first one from chest height onto floor boards & it put a kink halfway along the blade that made it useless.
More careful with it's replacement & going strong after a year. But constantly running the file over it, as even blue grit takes lumps out of it.

I keep mine in a Refina leather wallet .. but I think they stopped making them as it was keeping their trowels too safe. :RpS_sneaky:

Once you have one there is no going back ... but way, way, way too fragile!
