A: It comes down to personal preference. Both tools are used to imbed drywall tape and then used to smooth drywall mud over the tape. The blades on both tools can be bent to match the shape of an imperfect corner if desired. Many users prefer the smaller tool to imbed the tape and then use the larger tool for finishing.
A: I paid a pro to do the entire house after a flood. He did 2 coats. Then I remodeled the bathroom upstairs myself. I used both sizes. Started with the small. Then put a 2nd layer with the larger tool. I'm not a pro but it worked well for me for my 1st time.
A: This depends on the area you are using it. In most cases you want to use the larger one for a smoother wider application. The smaller one is used for tight areas the larger one won't work.
A: This is an inside corner tool.
