You still on here talking about plastering materials :rayos: haha
Jewsons stuff can be s**t from time to time. Sometimes the beads are made from tin foil. Flimsy and splay right out.

I've been using that for taping and really like it. You'll never get a blown tape because the gear goes through it.

I've always used paper tape for internals and scrim for flat joints when taping, but saw good reviews about the fibafuse so gave it a go and like it. None of my work is 'crash bang wallop' do it as fast as you can s**t, it's all about the best possible finish, so if it takes a bit longer, so what. I charge accordingly.

Fiba fuse is tip top for filler taping,but tried a bit with multi on plasterboard
Didn't react well above a few headers above doors.don't think it's designed for finish plaster.if I'm wrong tell me.but it is major strong,yet when you look at it's make up it looks weak.

Put the gear in the corner, bed the tape, roll over with a bit more gear, then wipe off.

I'd say you're right. You need to be careful when bedding it in the corners that you don't slice it with your trowel or knife.

Sorry tony i meant what filler?
When i first started paper taping we used a joint compound called blue diamond in 25kg bags
If its a big job i will use gyproc joint filler but could do with sourcing something in 25 kg again, do you know of any?

I use Easifill, BG Joint Filler or joint cement. The setting compounds do a better job IMO as you get a bit of shrinkage with the air drying compounds. I finish the internals with joint cement though.
