    NVQ3

    The lad is probably talking about the question books you have to fill out, fuuck all on plastering it’s more about health and safety and working around others, Shiite like that

    beats spreading

    Depending what part of the country your in I’d say take up sea angling, takes me to amazing looking places around north wales, almost don’t mind if you don’t catch then.

    Lovely afternoon

    Feathers are always great off the breakys and a smaller rod down the side with ragworm or strips of squid for pollock, wrasse and other species. Lob half a mackeral out about 10/20ft depending on depth of water, on a 6/0 if your brave enough for a conger or a Huss :bananahappy:

    Skim stripes

    When I finish the wall they’re always trowelled down enough not to be felt and never show through when decorated, when I give the skim a flatten it looks great but after the first wet small ones some show through but only in some places, could this mean I’m introducing water just a bit too...

    Help with dots

    Looking at the pictures the dots don’t hide any of the aggregate or anything behind them so it could just be where water dropped onto it after their final trowel and has dried like that

    Help with dots

    Bead has no paint on it so I’m guessing you’ve had your walls skimmed with carlite or you’ve stripped back an older wall with carlite or old grey board finish on, them darker spots could just be differentiates in the skim in this case.

    Rusty trowel

    Dry and WD at the end of the day should stop it rusting, using it everyday will also stop rust on the face as it’s worn down

    Graco mk v + bagar g

    On plaster board you’ll 2 coat the same day definitely, just spray 1-2mm and spat or flexi trowel smooth

    Graco mk v + bagar g

    Fill joints, screws and beads out with jointing compound or easy fill60 type products if it’s a small job. Bagar g is only the finish and isn’t great for prepping with

    What type of plaster is this?

    If it’s solid as fook sand and cement, if you can crumble with your finger or if it has horse hair/straw in it then it’s lime.

    Nela medi flex review

    Flexis will take strain off the wrist but they’re only for the last trowel, they can ride over bumps if used too early

    EWI

    If on brick and block then just use normal bagged ocr like hp12, much nicer to work with than an ewi product.
  37. LTJ

    EWI

    If it’s a knock off brick would want prepping with a grit product of some kind, then mesh base prime and thin coat
  38. LTJ

    EWI

    Topped with an ewi render like mapei ar1 or another brands version of that and then yeah silicone top coat, thin coat systems just not general bagged render like hp12
