The best $25 I've ever spent

If you are doing drywall, get this.  No dust at all!  I cannot believe how well it works.  My lungs wish I would have got this long ago.

Yeah, but be sure to put a drywall filter in your ShopVac. And clean it frequently.

Yes, use the fine inlet filter.  I also use a bag inside the shop vac and an exhaust filter.

Don't forget hearing protection from that shopvac!   ;)

Seriously though, those things are loud. Wet sanding is also a good idea if you are doing drywall.

Sponges are a great way to smooth off the rough edges on a final coat.
Not to wet and go lightly, after time you'll can get a hang of it.

I wish I'd have known about that when I built this house 14 years ago.  :duh:
Although....I have a nice selection of free buckets as a result of all the 'mud' I used building it.
Neat product though.
