    That's more like it, as long as it doesn't alter the product of course

    A test on a wall is what's needed this only proves it sets quicker in a bucket.

    Why are plasterers obsessed with speed and always in a rush? . Plaster sets quick enough for me as it is.

    Is this an advert for increasing your footprint and wasting more money on plaster? Lol

    Meanwhile here on the costa it's gridlocked I'd say this happens in either direction at least 5times a day.
    I would put Spanish driving on a par with the Italians and only slightly better than the Maltese who are truly horrific. IMG_6584.JPG has been blocked for over an hour and even police and fire crews barely audible over the orchestra of horns From said eejits in cars.:cachetada:
    P.s. Yes it's cloudy :hola:

    That stuff looks ok, but to be fair if I need something to go off quicker I just use some of my dirty water from my cleaning bucket, that sets stuff in about 30mins tops! Oh and it's free!!

    If you would have a collomix cleaning bucket thingy you'd be only cleaning it once a week, so you'd have sludge on board most times

    I Just tip the water out of my cleaning bucket then leaving the sludge behind, so when you tip new water back in then hey presto! you have dirty water again!

    Yeah true, I know what you mean and the stuff does look good, but If your after a quicker setting time on small areas then timing surely is not a worry?

    3 quid a sachet mate! and you need 2 to every 25kg bag of gear. That's £6 on top of every bag of plaster. :inocente:
     
  29. theclemo

    theclemo Private Member

    f**k that. Sure that's a load of bollocks. He made a big massive mistake on his pricing that's f**k**g ridiculous. £2 a pack that would do a 25kg bag would be more like it.

    I'll not be using it so. It's a pity. I was hoping to use it most days when skimming to be honest
     
  31. Cockney1

    Cockney1 Member

    At them prices it's gotta be £30 a day spent on it so that's £150 a week f*ck that!!!! I'll just stick to adding my dirty water to the mix when needed! (Tried and tested method.) Lol.

    theclemo Private Member

    I was thinking be good for getting extra set in. But at £12 for the extra set I'll just go home

    I agree with your post further down its too expensive.

    On the bags I've used it in I found one bag with one sachet of half time set and finishes at 50-70 minutes when it's been on board work it's consistently been set and finished at 60 minutes if that helps.
    They were 2 coats with same gear
     
  35. theclemo

    theclemo Private Member

    So I wonder if I use 1 pack to a bag and one coat skim will I get it down to a hour set. Still think it should be only £2 to a 25kg bag tho
