    In the 1950s nobody had a van very few had a car so most went to work on a bus, so you only took basic tools and the contractor you were working for would take wheelbarrow/water butt etc to site

    When I started labouring on site in the early eighties spread I worked with used a candle if the bathroom had no windows, if he didn't have a candle he'd light an empty bag up to trowel!

    Its odd, most of my life been on site and walls would get put on and 3 trowels sometimes only 2 and standard would be good. Moved to domestic/ small builders and had bit more time so sometimes give another trowel and it would look worse so give it another and then shiney by then its to late...

    The only thing I like about plastering is you can earn money without buying new tools, unless you break a trowel there good for years. I still use occasionally an MT I've had for over 30 years

    I can't either, I understand peoples concerns but If there was a vaccine against cancer I wonder if peoples attitude might change.
