Banjos or bazookas are one of the best drywall tools that simultaneously tape and mud drywall seams. It cuts short work of covering drywall seams with paper tape. But speed isn’t the only advantage a banjo offers. It practically eliminates the common problem of loose or bubbling tape that plagues many beginning tapers.
Great selection of construction mud or concrete mixing tools available. The “ready-mix” compound you buy isn’t necessarily “ready to apply.” It needs preparation. That involves mixing it and adding what’s needed to achieve the right consistency. You’ll need a low-rpm drill (450-600 rpm) to mix the compound. Using a low-RPM drill with a mixer attachment, push the attachment to the bottom of the bucket and begin the drill slowly. Work the mixing attachment up and down, in and around the mix. Mix until you can scoop some onto your drywall knife and hold it vertically. If it slowly slides off the knife, it’s just right. If it sticks in place for more than a few seconds, it’s too thick and needs more mixing. If it slides off straight away, it’s too thin and needs time or more mix to solidify. If your mix won’t thin down to the right consistency, add a touch of water (a few tablespoons to a third of a 5-gallon bucket is sufficient to start). Mix for about 20 seconds and recheck consistency. If it’s too thin, add more mix from the box, or some powdered mud mix to thicken.

There are two main types of drywall sanders you can choose from: manual or electric.
Manual sanders are simple, budget-friendly options ideal for smaller jobs such as patching broken drywall, sanding corners and smoothing out round edges. They come in a few different types. A hand sander is a great all-purpose tool. Just load it with sandpaper and you’re good to go. Electric drywall sanders – also known as drywall power sanders – are a better choice if you are a professional contractor or frequently do drywall work.
An electric drywall sander saves time compared with a manual sander and provides plenty of power to sand ceilings and walls while also removing residue, paint coatings and adhesive.
Sandpaper is produced in a range of grit sizes and is used to remove material from surfaces, either to make them smoother (for example, in painting and wood finishing), to remove a layer of material (such as old paint), or sometimes to make the surface rougher (for example, as a preparation for gluing).
There are main types of drywall cutting tools: a utility knife and drywall circle cutter. A utility knife is recommended for scoring drywall panels, which is done by cutting through the drywall’s paper layer. You can also use it to trim drywall. Be aware that utility knives may not be the most efficient for cutting small, precise pieces of drywall. In that case, use a precision knife. A circular saw is a tool for cutting many materials such as wood, masonry, plastic, or metal and may be hand-held or mounted to a machine. In woodworking the term "circular saw" refers specifically to the hand-held type and the table saw and chop saw are other common forms of circular saws.
