The TapeBuddy Drywall Taping Tool holds a roll of tape and joint compound. As you pull the joint tape to the desired length the TapeBuddy applies an even coat of joint compound to the tape. Cut the tape with your joint knife and apply the tape to your wall joint. No need for precoating the joint with mud! The TapeBuddy automatically does the work for you. TapeBuddy Advantages:
Nothing to carry around
Loads compound on tape properly
Easy to use
Fits on top of mud bucket or any flat surface
The TapeBuddy is a lightweight and inexpensive drywall taping tool designed to apply joint compound directly to the joint tape. It's essentially a drywall tape dispenser that applies an even coat of compound directly to the joint tape. There is no need to pre-mud drywall joints or carry around heavy tools. Simply load up the TapeBuddy with joint compound, pull out the tape, and apply to the wall. Simply, inexpensive and effective.
Good tool to have and does help to tape faster, however could be much better with a bigger hopper.

This tool is worth every penny i was able to complete my project in almost a third of the time with not a lot of mud waste on the first coat i just wish the hopper was a little bigger but for the price a well worth investment
