Doing a big DW job now and FINALLY broke down and bought at HD the metal corner bead tool that is supposed to hammer teeth into the DW with a hammer blow. The Corner bead is 1 1/4 and that is what the tool said it was for. I used one of these in the past one time and loved it and since this job had LOTS of Corner beading it seemed worth the $42 investment.
However upon using it..the dang thing barely made any teeth marks in the CB. The punchers on the tool just barely grazed the edges of the CB. Instead of sizable holding teeth biting into the DW, I got teenie tiny CB fragments. Result was the CB fell away from the corner after all that hammering. Did I buy a cheap CB tool at HD (Wallboard brand) or is there a better one, even if it costs more?
