LEVEL5 SKIMMING BLADES & ACCESSORIES.LEVEL5's line of drywall skimming blades offer outstanding quality, performance and features. They move mud effortlessly and with high sensitivity, enabling finishers to complete their jobs efficiently with consistent, professional results. What sets LEVEL5's skimming blades apart is their ultra-lightweight design. Drywall compound smoothing is a finesse game and the skimming blades, extendable handles and handle adapter in this tool line have been specifically developed and refined through years of feedback from professional finishers.
Available in eight lengths, there's a LEVEL5 skimming blade for every drywall finishing job. 7-inch, 10-inch or 14-Inch blades are often used for bedding and wiping down drywall tape after the tape has been applied by hand or using an automatic taper or banjo. When finishing butt joints or slightly wider areas, 16-Inch, 24-Inch or 32-Inch skimming blades are ideal and will get the job faster vs.
Smaller trowels or finishing knife. 40-Inch or 48-Inch skimming blades are perfect for smoothing larger areas. Typical examples would include when you spray or roll on compound and smooth to a level 5 finish, or when you are covering up textured ceilings and walls.The LEVEL5 Skimming Blade profile provides a comfortable, ergonomic grip. The design also allows for one of LEVEL5's three specialized skimming blade handles to be securely attached with a handle adapter. LEVEL5 Skimming Blades feature an extruded, aircraft-grade aluminum blade housing. The blade remains rigid and straight, even at lengths up to 4 feet (48 inches).
The adjustment thumb screw enables the skimming blade to be easily adjusted to the optimal angle for any finishing job. The skimming blade handle adapter is composed of glass-filled composite. This material is very light weight but offers excellent strength and impact resistance. The handle adapter quickly snaps over the blade housing for a secure connection. To release, simply lift the two quick release tabs.
The LEVEL5 Skimming Blade handle fits securely into the handle adapter, ensuring there is no wobble during use. The handle is secured using button snaps. The LEVEL5 Skimming Blade handle is manufactured using lightweight but rigid fiberglass and aluminum. An easy-to-use twist lock secures the handle at the desired length.
Unlike typical finishing knives, LEVEL5 Skimming Blade inserts feature a rounded edge that keeps the corners from gouging freshly smoothed drywall compound or paper. LEVEL5 Skimming Blade inserts are precision crafted using 0.3mm European stainless steel. They slide into the blade housing for a snug fit. This configuration is more cost-effective than replacing the entire skimming blade. Composite end caps prevent drywall compound from accumulating (and drying) inside the skimming blade housing.This allows for easy cleanup! LEVEL5 Skimming Blades feature aircraft-grade, extruded aluminum housings for maximum rigidity across the blade span. Extra Reach with an Optional Handle Adapter and One of Three Handle Options. Manufactured using premium fiberglass, aluminum, and high impact ABS composite, LEVEL5's line of skimming blade handles are extremely lightweight yet robust and rigid - even when fully extended. The Blade Inserts are Replaceable!
LEVEL5 Skimming Blades feature blade inserts that are easily replaceable if damaged or worn. This means the tool can be renewed at a fraction of the cost of replacing the whole blade.
