Works fine, sands well.

Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace 1qt Vinyl Spackling Compound (0534AC):

I bought this to fill nail holes left when an old railing was removed, so we could prime and paint before the new, smaller one was installed. For those who say it dries too hard to sand--did you apply it with a putty knife, and smooth it out as you should?

Because I'm a 66 year old female, and NOT a veteran of working with spackle; this product does what it's supposed to do, which is to fill holes and work down to a nearly flat surface with a putty knife before being sanded. It takes two coats, but that was to be expected. The last time I needed to spackle anything, it needed two coats, as well. Spackle, being moist, shrinks as it dries.


Dries fast, surface has air holes and isn't smooth

      Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace 1qt Vinyl Spackling Compound (0534AC):

      I've never used Vinyl Spackling before and it's a lot like very light weight frosting. BTW, the Vinyl is the type, not indicating the material with which it is to be used. It's label says it's appropriate for drywall, wood, plaster and stucco (and not for plastic or metal). Also not to be used with joint tape or as a skim coat. I used it to fill some sunken nail holes on an outside fence.

      Granted I've not used much sparkling in recent years but was a little surprised at how it didn't want to fill a hole smoothly, like the more clay-textured spackling I used years ago. Air holes, dips and tiny gaps were common. I just gave them a second coat and they looks good now.

      It cleans up with water, is fast drying and can be used for interior and exterior applications, so those are nice points.

      Next time, I'll try to find a smoother product.

        The two reviews both talk about using Vinyl spackling for drywall. That is not this product's intended use. The intended use is for Vinyl. The lightweight spackling would have served you much better.

        Terrible product

        By Chad

        from North Branch, MN

        Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace 1qt Vinyl Spackling Compound (0534AC):

        I used this product in a 5.5 oz tube to fill some nail holes. It is far too runny and kept gettting sucked into the wall. After three applications some of the holes still were not completely filled. Absolutely terrible product. Waste of time and money and is in the garbage.

        Agree with other review that it dries extremely hard and is difficult to sand. I too reverted to using drywall mud.


        Poor product

        Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace 1qt Vinyl Spackling Compound (0534AC):

        I used this product to fill nail holes in older damaged drywall. It tended to dry very quickly, which is great....but it dried so hard it was nearly impossible to sand. I ended up "washing" the dried product off the wall with a cloth, and using drywall mud instead. This stuff is so hard, I really don't know where it is useable. Mine is in the garbage.
