This is pretty much a standard knockdown tool for wall and ceiling texture work. But there are some advantages to this one being plastic and foam versus metal. For one, it is lighter and that makes for much less work, especially doing a ceiling. Now we all would prefer a longer tool maybe 2-3 feet long but sometimes the edges need fixing or the quarters are too cramped for a long one. That's when this one comes in handy for touch-up.
Another thing makes this better than a metal tool, like the old one I have. You can actually bend the tool slightly to accommodate convex or concave surfaces. Nothing worse that getting a perfect texture in one part of the sweep and a totally excessive one at the edges or center. If you have a concave surface, place your thumb in the center of the back atop the Homax logo and push. This will bow out the edge at the center and make it convex to more closely match the work surface. For convex surfaces, make the tool a bit concave by placing thumb and index finger near the ends of the "T". This is almost impossible to do with my particular metal tool. It takes some practice to do this perfectly, but is worth the initial effort. Of course, some would rightly say the bend-ability can be a weakness on some jobs. So, use a stiffer one for those instances.
