    Crown staples are best on plasterboard. Brad nails on over skim. Cordless brad gun to fire them in straight through the bead.

    Weber pral m

    Just fill it in, then just cut it back to give a nice edge to work to. I pack out 10mm to give a bit of tolerance, I might scrape it back to 5mm if the reveal needs it to get the margin right.

    You take the ply off and work to the reveal when it's hard a day or 2 later. Rendaid on before the ply.

    No, piece of ply with a round hole in it fixed to the front.

    Weber pral m

    Get a piece of ply and cut a circle out to the required size with a router. Do the reveal first and the front when reveals are hard. I pack the ply 10 to 12mm off the wall.

    New trowel day

    You can get tennis elbow with any size trowel. I had it bad years ago, I had to wear the splints with the steel bar between velcro straps for 6 months. They stop you over turning you wrists. Plaster like a windmill and tennis elbow follows. I put on now with ox 18in, had tennis elbow with a 14in.
