  • Hey guys

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I am from San Diego, and I've been in the business for a couple of years now but I used to do drywall.

    Thanks for having such a welcoming forums group! By the way I love the website.

    "Sackett Board" was invented in 1894 by Augustine Sackett and Fred Kane. It was made by layering plaster within four plies of wool felt paper. Sheets were 36" x 36" x 1/4" thick with open (untaped) edges."[10]
    "Gypsum Board" evolved between 1910 and 1930 beginning with wrapped board edges, and elimination of the two inner layers of felt paper in favor of paper-based facings. Providing efficiency of installation, it was developed additionally as a measure of fire resistance.[11] Later air entrainment technology made boards lighter and less brittle, then joint treatment materials and systems also evolved.

    "Rock Lath" was an early substrate for plaster. An alternative san diego propane to traditional wood or metal lath, it was a panel made up of compressed gypsum plaster board that was sometimes grooved or punched with holes to allow wet plaster to key into its surface. As it evolved, it was faced with paper impregnated with gypsum crystals that bonded with the applied facing layer of plaster.

        Welcome aboard.
        I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
