I have a theory on the high shoulders.. I'm not sure about USG @ National but I do know Certainteed stopped using rollers and switched to a wedge on their machines . The rollers had to be replaced however often which caused the plant to shut down for the replacement Where the wedge will last 10 times longer. I'd be willing to bet ALL the wallboard manufactures
are using The wedge now.

And [If?] They all started with the wedge pressing at the same time ..Say 08/09 Would It not make sense that's the culprit?

Just a thought!

The high shoulders I can deal with on small jobs like I usually do. The damn air pockets are what really pizz me off. I don't know how many bugle heads I sent straight through the boards on the last hanging job I did.
