How to use this bead


Okay! No reason to get ur
panties in a bunch.

How about a metal stud screwed
flat to the wall and then another
nested inside with the flat part out.
screw them together and you're
good to go.

No, that picture of the wooden soffit isn't from my apartment. I don't think wood is technically an issue but I live in an apartment that I own but it still gets inspected and there are rules and I don't want the building manager or the board of directors, who may not be familiar with the fire code, to see that I permanently extended the plaster and mesh wall with wood.

Yeah, that may work. But I already have the hat channel and I figured I could screw the bead-like thing to the wall to do that. I'm not sure yet. I have to wait to order a new drill anyway.

I think it's called a straight ridge cap or ridge flashing, "designed to serve as a covering for the peak of the roof on ridged and hipped style roofs."

Mine is too small for that. Mine is angle trim. I'm still not sure what it's used for yet. Maybe like a bead except with no compound covering it.

Go with the standard metal edge bead. Use long screws so you can reach the hat channel--just don't over tighten. The bead you use needs to have holes in it for the compound to grab.

why not just use this type of bead?
I used it on my living room easy to use. Just can't buy from the orange apron people.

I already bought paper faced superwide bead, but after watching that video maybe I'll buy Mud Max. The angle framing trim that I was wondering about will be used as it's intended to be used, inside the soffit. It's usually "optional" but it's just what I need for my hat channel framed soffit.


I wonder how Mud Max affects sanding and water smoothing. Eh, I probably won't buy it.

Watch the video on trim tex.com It really does make it harder to sand but not that hard. They recommend it for everything except final coat. I have a case out in the garage it's a very good product.

Paper faced, metal reinforced bead will work fine. It's all I use any more on new work. Way less issues with "popped bead" (virtually none). You put it on with joint compound. It is available at HD and Lowes around here...
