1 = b also called oxidation


2 = A banjo is a manual drywall taping tool to apply drywall tape only and a bazooka will apply the tape and compound at the same time.

Good questions!

Of course Stormy's azz is probably the same weight!

Hey Roy,


Doing good so far. Of course I'm not as old as you!


Don't know if you won but we have a trim carpenter expert, building expert, etc., etc., who set me straight on the trim answer. Barry really knows his chit!!


FYI for you new Inspectors out there. If you have a question contact Barry and Roy they'll set you straight!

We need to stick to the program and wait for a winner. And no one got it accurate yet.
Maybe more Members will join in.

1 b) Chemical action theory

2 A banjo is simpler for a sole operator but you'll need stilts or a ladder to tape the ceilings. A bazooka allows the operator to tape the ceiling without ladders or stilts, but generally you need a second person - one to operate the bazooka and another to knife the joints. Banjo is easier to operate for an unskilled laborer and to field clean whereas bazookas require a skilled operator and are a P.I.T.A. to clean.

3 1/5-bend

4 Dado

5 Two tons

How'd I do?
