This Combination Drywall Rasp Does Three Jobs Better Than The Old Single-Duty Modelscomments (4) October 29th, 2010 in Blogs

As a remodeling contractor, I work with drywall just enough to pass muster, but not enough to cut every sheet so that it fits perfectly on the first try. So I carry a drywall rasp, which is handy for tweaking the edge of a panel to get a snug fit. Recently, I've traded my standard rasp for the Tajima model.
Three for the price of one
Rather than the metal-mesh surface on a typical drywall rasp, the Tajima tool has what the company calls "Tetra-Teeth" that make short work of shaving on both the push and the pull strokes. The 7-in. tool has three separate grinding sections: a coarse-toothed recessed portion that straddles the edge of the drywall and is also slotted to channel gypsum dust into the hollow handle, a raised section that's better suited for finer shaving of a rough knife cut, and a row of protruding teeth along one edge for focused cleanup work in notches and cutouts. Although I rarely have a need for three levels of rasping, the tool works better than a typical rasp, fits in my pouch better, and costs about the same ($12).
