      Bummer day.  First cut ever with my rotozip, tried to do my best counterclockwise, but I got a really sucky kind of cut.  Should I recut my drywall panel or will I be able to patch this okay?  I’m really disappointed.   Rotozipped cut of my recessed light.

      Hey Kathleen,

      Not a big deal….. I have some bad cuts every now and again too

      Just cut off the peeling paper, and then apply some paper tape that overhangs the edges. Might have to do a few pieces to cover all angles of it.

      You will have to apply a second coat over the tape and sand down like any other joint

      Then cut the excess overhanging can after it dries
