    Nela black premium elite

    Used one for about 9 months to give it a fair run, absolutely shite for troweling up for some reason drags more than actually troweling muck up... Ended up using it to just lay on and lay down with but it pushing the water back in to the plaster and when troweling up seems to make things gritty...

    I'd say your problem is you've mixed way to thick to start with and your moving at the pace of a sloth... As soon as your gear touches the water it starts setting put it this way you should be mixing for first coat around 13l of water per bag atleast (personally if I'm doing a big area on boards...

    Tbf I always thought I was a filthy c*** when skimming until I split a house with some geezer who is apparently swamped with his own jobs and I s**t you not he knocked up 5 bag gauge and 2 bags of it was on the floor! The most mess I make with a 4 bag gauge is a hawk full on the floor!

    Yeah I can see how that could easily happen, what level of insurance have you got I've already got public liability so I'm guessing I can just bolt on to that.

    This is why I started this thread. Before I decide to full commit to growing myself and my business I want to know what I'm realistically in for. Site work is nice and easy but I believe I'm ready to take the next step.

    Aup guys. I'm currently a site spread and just wondering how different is it to do private jobs from site work... I want to start doing some private jobs at the weekends for some extra dough, even if its just the simple stuff like how clean you are when your skimming or finding the work...

    Miliwakee m18 mud mixer if you want a cordless could do with an extra couple of hundred rpm but the batteries last for ages like 16 bags a battery... Pretty decent investment

    I honestly don't understand how you can buy a 490mm hop up for 20 quid but you want a shorter one and you may aswell cut your legs off at the knees seems the cheaper option

    Have you used the ezy-hop I know there quite expensive but if they are worth it I don't mind paying it to save my back on ceilings that are slightly to high to do off the floor but to low to stand on a hop up

    I'm sure this a common problem with us vertically gifted individuals I need to find a work platform that's 300mm high. I can't find anything i don't want a stool I already have one and I can't use stilts and don't wanna buy them I'll probably just end up on my arse staring at the ceiling instead...
