    Johnsons base coat

    It's one of the worst products to put through a machine I use the G4 nearly everyday and don't have any problems with anything else the machine is not at fault it is setup correctly and doesn't change anything while working It's the gear it's not very compatible with the machine

    Skim over wet bonding

    Yeah before the last trowel put your trowel flat on the wall and rub round in a circular motion over the bubbles they'll come out and in future if you want bonding to set quickly put a good handful of lime in the mix it sets it off fast
