LEVEL5 16-Inch Drywall Skimming Blade Insert | 4-952

Overview

LEVEL5 Skimming Blade Inserts are manufactured from premium, high precision (.03mm) European stainless steel. Use this insert to replace a worn or damaged blade on a 16" LEVEL5 skimming blade.

With their ultra lightweight design, LEVEL5 Skimming Blades move mud effortlessly and with high sensitivity. The shorter blades are perfect for wiping down freshly applied tape or running behind flat boxes. The longer blades can be used to smooth out mud on walls/ceilings with a glass finish and minimal lap marks.

LEVEL5 Replaceable Blade Inserts

Although skimming blades are exceptional tools for drywall finishing, they are also precision tools and work most effectively when the blade edges are in pristine condition. LEVEL5 Drywall Skimming Blades have therefore been designed so that the stainless steel blade inserts can be replaced when dented, dinged or worn. Unlike other skimming blades on the market, LEVEL5 skimming blades can be refreshed to optimal condition at a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire blade.

The blade inserts are exceptional quality. They have been crafted from high precision 0.3mm European stainless steel and offer the perfect amount of flex for efficient, effortless skimming and smoothing. They also feature a rounded edge that keeps the corners from gouging freshly smoothed drywall compound or paper.

Installing a New Blade Insert

Changing out the blade insert on a LEVEL5 Skimming Blade is a simple process:

  1. Remove one of the end caps.
  2. Carefully slide out the old blade insert (the blades are sharp, so wear gloves if possible)
  3. Swap in the new blade insert. The raised tabs at the back of the blade insert provide a secure friction fit in the blade housing.
  4. Replace the end cap and the skimming blade is refreshed and ready to go.

I’m not sure if this kind of tool was available last time I did any drywall work (late 90s). I’d consider myself a capable owner (make my own cabinets and doors, railings, column wraps, etc). I had a wall at a rental that was an absolute mess from the supposed professional contractor that had done repairs, so bad I knew after I patched it I’d better skim it back to health.

I was prepared for my first time to be something nearing a disastrous learning experience. I was *shocked* at how quick and easy it was to get this wall looking like new drywall with just a handful of liftoffs to deal with later.

No exaggeration it took about 15-20 minutes to thin the compound and skim this wall. I know from the past it would have taken me hours and lots of profanity with wide taping knives. These things are a dream to use. I can only imagine how nice it’d look in a pro’s hands.

As much as we’ve been using our new @level5tools skim blade, it’s now part of our family photo!
