I know…I know…:cool: :shock: :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley:

Great questions, Marc and Dan! Good work, my friends!

(Dave Fetty, CMI) #3

Good questions Marc, Daniel and Marcel, thank you for your time!

(Emmanuel J. Scanlan, TREC# 7593) #4

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.

3 = b

4 = Panel mold

5 = e approximately depending on whose weight definition you use for a cubic foot of water.

Good questions!

Of course Stormy’s azz is probably the same weight! :smiley:

1 B
2 The banjo is designed to apply joint compound and tape in one pass. The bazooka provides a similar junction, but allows for a longer reach to the ceiling.
3 B
4 Ogee edge
5 E

Hey Roy,

Thank you Brother… I appreciate you as well.

(Marcel R. Cyr, CMI) #11

Well, Barry is not the only Finish Carpenter in town you know.
;):slight_smile:

(Marcel R. Cyr, CMI) #12

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.

(Larry Kage, CMI) #13

LOL…I agree. :smiley:

(Steve Nadeau) #14

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?

(Marcel R. Cyr, CMI) #15
