Re: My Tips That Make The Job Go By Quicker.


Antonio:

In my brief career as a drywaller 25 years ago, we did not use roto zips. We would mark the center of the wall out lets with the back of our hammers, kick the board up, fasten the top, and then punch the keyhole saw into the box and cut. It would take about 15 seconds. By the time you measure and transfer, I am done with mine. I have since used roto zips and if you use one often you can get pretty fast with one. If you only use it occasionally, it tends to get away from you a lot.

I can see how the router would follow the box around I just can't see how you'd slam the sheet on and cut it out with a keyhole saw as u barely have enough room to slide the saw in and out especially on the side where the box mounts to the stud.

You only use the saw to find the sides and the top. Then you slice down with your utility knife, It is an acquired technique.

A little vaseline on those boxes and pot lights work great, put it in place once drop it down and make your cuts. Perfect every time, no mess afterwards.

I wear a diaper which saves trips to the can. Since I have a diaper on I'm not about leave the job as to not be seen anywhere by anyone and don't stop on the way home either. Its a little funky but it can save me up to 10 minutes a day some days

Accidental Leathers for you man.

Maybe you should think about getting a Union Suit.

Who wears a diaper? Sick. I do skip wiping my ass and washing hands, huge waste of time, on the clock and at home.
