run it on a proper bench
I suspect because ts on glass its lifing of very easy, as the plaster sets it swells and often causes movement, being on a proepr bench where its stuck to the bench a bit better might help.
ive ran millions of spins and never had it curl as you say, only thing is i dont...
I bet they do. We skip thrm all.
The cost of 250 is to run a reverse mould on the bench so it can then be cast from. The reverse mould is made of Plaster so no good once of the bench.
Running the cornice on the bench defeats the point of casting. So that's why a reverse mould is done so it...
I'm still alive.
It wasn't our work as per, we just advised on what may have been in the house and offered samples for them to replicate for the show on the 3d renders.
No doubt we probably did the work originally, I can't prove it though.
No use for casting with though as too flexible
The black casting bowels are perfect, one had to told, other with your brush. Get mine from industrial plasters and the only problems we have are them ending up in the vans and going off to site!!
we also use these 5ltr buckets...
what you mean is your use to fixing the cheap Chinese shite :D Thats all run off on the back.
Splash it and it will be fine, but if you did want to do it you need to cut another profile in say plastic that slides over the strike offs
Wow there jess....looking to start a turf war :D
I found postage to be a right c**t,
You'll have to fully dry them first, then package them, then trust they arrive without getting broken.
can be done though. id expect to pay 15-25 quid postage
right ya bunch of c**ts,
get a bag of ca120 or fibrefix and you can fit as soon as the f**k**g skim is hard to touch, the day after, of even 6 f**k**g years later.
bish bash bosh
but what would i know :D
What i was saying was if theres any water on the surface it will peel, we do shellac after an hour or so as you say but if theres any real dampness when applying on the surface it will peel off..
im not saying bone dry, just make sure theres no wet spots on the surface...
i've tried to tell them fella, thats used for in-situ running moulds etc.
the company that examined the original render recommended it....which happens to be there product.....
with a set time anywhere between 15-40 minutes...i dont fancy my chances with it! haha
well thats what i thought but they have specced it and from what i can see it has to be used.
using that stuff and to there spec thickness and labour its working out around £67.50m2 plus VAT
Seems f**k**g steep to me
the pre bagged lime has already been chosen by conservation so no chance of getting another product, we would rather mix ourselves but this is what we have to price for, pre bagged
Just wondering what people are roughly charging m2 for lime render?
Spec is saying we have to use a premixed/bagged render, Base coat at 10mm and top coat at 5mm.
What would people be roughly charging on a labour only m2
cisco, i get ya, it becomes off square so to speak and the more off square the narrower the mould gets.
had that before with a huge mould we had to run but it was a random shape so was a c**t to run without going offsquare
Regency is round the corner.
Your welcome to pop round anytime fella.
just shoot me a text and see if i'm about, I know Tommorrow and next week im in the workshop. Dedicated a week to try and reorganise the place.
too much for me as i can make them myself, would take them if going at a cheap rate just to have lying around the workshop , looking at the fireplaces one of them is just a case and no actually mould. cheers anyway
Hi there GT, im up in liverpool so probably to far for you to travel?
but if not im sure i can show you a few things depending on what you want to learn and your time frame available etc.
its not something you will learn in a week. You can learn to cast easily in a week but to make cornice from...
