    AHAA! Now I think we're on to something ...

    I've enjoyed meeting new tradesmen over the years and the myriad of ways we have of doing the same thing. It's kind of like sidewinder saws versus wormdrives. East coasters and DIY'r types tend to prefer sidewinders, while west coasters prefer wormdrives. Both saws do the same thing, it's user comfort/preference. Back on topic, it's the same with drywall techniques. Ultimately, as long as the job is done properly, who cares what tools you've used (no matter how silly a hod and trowel are ... ).

    It's a hawk not a hod. A hod was used to take mud up a ladder. It was V shaped and on a pole for carrying.

    Just thought I'd help

    besides I actually have experience doing drywall so that makes me not qualified for the r & d on the caulk and staples because I'm just too much in love with hanging 5/8 on the ceiling with an apprentice on the other end trying to get a screw to stay on his gun

    See? You'd be doing your apprentice a favor by doing the R&D.
