Taping Tools

Drwall finishing tools used by the pros?

Hi, my name is Dave. This question goes out to the drywall finishers out there. I am possibly considering a drywall finishing apprenticeship and I have done some research, but I was wondering if most of the finishing is done these days with the mechanical taping tools and some hand taping for the more difficult areas or is a lot of it still by hand? Thanks.

Seth is right The 1st coat (the taping) is usually done with a banjo, it s just as good and so much faster when done right. All other coats are done with a few different size flat trowels according to the width of the seam, weather its a butt seam, corner or a tapered edge seam. GL
