Filler mixing boards

Post by 88k5jimmy on March 27th 2013, 8:15 pm

What works? What do you like? What do you not like? Best value? I don't think I will be needing a very large one but exploring all options.

Thanks

I have always used cardboard. Mix my mud and then throw it out when done.

I've read and have been told using cardboard can wick the oils or glues from the cardboard into the filler. Anybody heard of that? Also, what about using a non textured plastic cutting board?

I use exactly what you said, a non textured plastic cutting board. I found one for 2.99 that was just the right size for me and not too thick so that I can push any excess into a clump and bend the board to snap off the leftover once it's dried. I would have just used cardboard if I hadn't found that cheap thing.

been using card board for year's as has my dad and no problems yet, now you do not want to use the coated cardboard as this has a silicine coating to make it water proof, go to youtube at diyautoschool or swrnc, pete does high end resto's and street rod build's and he use's cardbord to mix his bondo and finishing putty. just my 2 cents
