Interesting new tool

Of course with a couple pieces for wood and some rare earth magnets you could make your own http://www.blindmark.com/pages/bmk_demonstrations.htm

Re: Interesting new tool

It is interesting. Most pro drywall hangers I have watched just put a spot either visually or measured inside of the opening to find the edge with a roto-zip and then roto-zip around it. Looks simple enough for them. There may be much more to it and I would ask questions of the drywall installers but I am not yet fluent in Spanish…….. I am trying though as my current GF is……. We are thinking of an all Spanish weekend.

I'll ask her the Spanish words for, "Drywall" and "Roto-zip".

I'd like to know how it sits perfectly each time, seeing is believing though.

The way the magnets are positioned pulls the outer "cup" into alignment, or fairly close.
