    I was recommending the use of the damp sponge ONLY for the area
    where the person mudding is trying to blend the thinnest&nbsp; area into
    the flat of the wallboard.<br>
    <br>
    I agree that what ever covers the tape is by&nbsp; good enough to be
    painted.&nbsp; If we start sanding the mud we look at an immediate future
    with every piece of electronic equipment&nbsp; being covered in fine
    white powder.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Besides, consider the condition of the existing
    walls.<br>

      were so big that they will almost certainly require two passes on

          &nbsp; &nbsp;we might be able to smooth the wall surfaces with just<br>
          a damp (or wet) rag. that, or maybe smooth them enough to<br>
          require only a little final sanding.<br>
          &nbsp; &nbsp;standards of smoothness are quite elastic at noisebridge,<br>
          seems to me: there's always the "natural" or "primitive"<br>
          standard of "fuck it".<br>

            &gt; &gt; Hi Mike,<br>
            &gt; &gt;<br>
            &gt; &gt; I believe that the mudding is finished in Church;
            what's going to be needed<br>
            &gt; &gt; in there is sanding and painting. &nbsp;If you feel
            like contributing, grab some<br>
            &gt; &gt; sand paper from the drawer in the shop and get to
            it!<br>
            &gt; &gt;<br>
            &gt; &gt; Warning: this is an incredibly dusty endeavor.<br>
            &gt; &gt;<br>
            &gt;<br>
            &gt; So, there are orbital sanders that hook with a long
            hose onto a vacuum<br>
            &gt; cleaner so that the sander dust is sucked up into the
            vacuum. &nbsp;Like this,<br>

            &gt;<br>
            &gt; Does anyone have such a thing that they might lend to
            Noisebridge?<br>
            &gt;<br>
            &gt; Otherwise, we could rent one. &nbsp;They have them for rent
            here,<br>

            &gt;<br>
            &gt; Maybe there's somewhere closer to SF to rent them? &nbsp;If
            not, I can rent<br>
            &gt; htis one and bring it up.<br>
