Best prices I've found...

I dunno. What's a regulator look like? There's a valve right above the trigger that you adjust the flame with.

It's actually a quarter of an inch. When one side of wallboard is even, the other side has a pretty big ledge. I'm terrible with mud. I dunno how it would turn out with me doing it.

Yeah I got really bad advice from the BM people here. They said no primer necessary, and no poly coat on top either. He was an old fart, and I think co-owner of the store, so I trusted him.
