John,
Your K-lath links appear to be broken for me. I think that the "cups" in the Cornalathe are facing the wrong direction and would add too much bulk to the corners. I'd rather wrap my corners instead of tying material together there. But thanks for the links. :)

Shaughnn,

It looks like it would be tough to wrap that stucco rite product. What do you think? :shrug:

John,
When working with expanded metal lathe, I use my mud edges to crease the metal along tight lines. Either laid out on the floor or while tucking a corner during installation, the edge gives you a great leverage angle to fold the metal any way you need. When working with lathe, I also like to wear a pair of those CLC "Tradesman" gloves, from Home Despot. They are pretty cheap and I just went through 17 sheets of 3.5 metal lathe on my last project and didn't get even a scratch,...on my hands. :) The gloves are ready to be thrown away though.
