    As per title, skimming over walls with the old wooden angle formers, which are handy @ right angles for fixing new galvanised beads. How do you chaps make them fit to other angles? I can imagine just pushing them into an obtuse angle and fixing while holding tight, but what about acute? Do you tighten them up with grips along the length prior to fixing? Or what.....

    Thanks PBD, I have actually used the stop beads in the past to good effect, however, I have subsequently noticed a barely visible hairline crack between the finish and the unmeshed side of the bead. Nothing to really worry about I suppose, but that would never happen on a double meshed bead.

    That would be a problem, if you were unable to seal a joint line, depending on the area and depth of surface that requires repair, it could be possible to help prevent/eliminate a crack occurring be the use of bonding or joint tape on the opposite side of the stop bead.
