Hi Chuck, watching you tip videos on dry wall repair I noticed that both tips leave the repair proud of the overall surface, my tip is to put a piece suitable lumber behind using a screw in the lumber to hold it in place then insert some drywall screws through the original wall into the lumber, this holds the backer in place then remove holding screw, cut and screw or stick the patch in place and finish with mud, sand to a flush finish, almost invisable finish.
