Complaining about people asking questions is so obnoxious. This isn't "what is corner bead?" or anything like that. If asking about proper technique with advanced tools like mud boxes is too basic then what the hell is this forum for?

I recommend following with a next size up knife. One light flow through. Apply with 10", follow with 12" stainless steel knife. Let dry then scrape lap line. Forget sanding. Dust in skim coat makes you finish inferior.

No box experience so i'm feeling a bit stupid...I don't understand why you would need to sand between coats when using boxes. You don't sand when hand finishing do you? (I don't)

Correct me if I'm wrong but.... the mud goes on with say a 10" box, Taper edges and then pull with a 12" knife?
