    Floating hardwall

    wait till the hardwalls gone hard but not set and rub it up with a wet sponge float, or sponge it like sand and cement render with a yellow sponge. Hardwalls too sticky to rub up with a regular float.

    refina power float

    they can get away with charging the earth because no one else is really selling them in the UK, so there is no competition. Surely you could buy a whole sheet of this rubber orange sponge sheeting? maybe for a fiver, anyone have any internet links?

    boxed standard plasterer to lime plastering

    If you're using plumb dot and screed you shouldn't have to worry too much about suction control, all houses were done with this method back in the day. Ask the guru on here his name is essexandy.

    boxed standard plasterer to lime plastering

    High suction control has anyone got any tips? whatever u do don't control the suction with pva, pva and lime don't mix. You need a certain amount of suction for the lime to go off, it's not setting material so if it's just sitting there with no suction it will crack or not go off at all
