    Best way to get into plastering?

    Everything you said bud is correct! Look for helping other plasterers an find your own feet that way. Courses is a option but limited in situations etc. All good plastering is experience really.

    Idiots everywhere.

    NHS private medical records grab

    Just England from what I heard a few weeks ago. There’s a lot of s**t going on behind closed doors but people are too busy putting a mask on to walk outside to a deadly virus that McDonald’s managed to stay open through the whole thing! Stay save an keep your head buried in the gullible sand pit

    Trowels getting to sharp!

    The illusion you need mega pressure to plaster a wall! False an a bad habit. Trowel does the work so you don’t have to. Carbon all day everyday.
