    Re: Pointy Plaster Ceiling Removal *with pic*

    That's just nasty. :-)

    Personally, I'd try scraping it first with something like my handy 5-in-1 painter's tool (maybe a hammer too). No promises, but you might be able to get it down to something...

    Re: Resurfacing acoustical tile ceilings

    You don't want to add too much weight or get these very wet. They warp and curve. You can fill scuffs with lightweight spackle and then use push pins or small nails to put the small holes back. Then...

    Re: Metal step drill

    Do you have any sort of extender for this bit?
