    Private plate

    Nice, yes I almost went for one of these in lockdown, should've done it, there was a beauty for sale in Bristol at a good price. RWD with the Mercedes engine.

    What van did you go for in the end? If I remember rightly you were also fond of Toyota but real Toyotas, not badge only. I'm changing mine, can't wait any longer for a new hiace so think I'll go transporter.

    Speed skim

    Refina for me, prefer the rounded grip . 1800 for ceilings and walls. Might try a 1200 for ceilings, good shout kinker. 600 in the van, never used

    Bond It Failed

    That's one of the reasons I bought it. I'm into concrete, brutalist art etc and looking to do some concrete polishing with it, but f**k yes it's great for taking paint off walls for rendering.

    Bond It Failed

    I've peeled bond-it off of glossy walls before, one of the reasons I went back to PVA (also bought a scabbler for roughing gloss which is immense)

    Boots

    I'm OK thanks Hector. Yes I do enjoy your posts and I'm missing the gigs. The boots are suede, I'd say water resistant rather than waterproof. How are you doing?

    Boots

    DeWalt dealer Irvine. £50 Screwfix. Best boot I've bought. Don't like laces as get dry and slow on and off. These boots keep fantastic shape and don't go loose like other slip ons. Really good support and comfortable. Can really take a battering.

    Baumit Kp36 W Plaster

    When applying finish, yes you will have much more working time and can be re-worked with sponge. I sometimes sponge finish and sometimes steel trowel, depending on what's required. The bauwer lite base is very light and can be put on at a crazy thickness without slumping. But I can't reiterate...

    Baumit Kp36 W Plaster

    Not this one, but have used Bauwer which might be a similar product. The base coat was so light it was like floating marshmallow. If it says to dampen base before applying finish then make sure that happens, even if still green as the bauwer top needs this to prevent shelling.

    WHERE IS THE PLASTER?????

    Journalist from BBC Wiltshire radio called me today, asking about plaster shortage and said they're doing a programme on it Friday 1.30pm ish and asked if I'd contribute. I said I will and will try not to swear.
