    Tyzack trowels...

    Dunno what others think of Tyzack trowels lately.. in January this year we had to buy some more finishing trowels as my mates double tang popped a couple of rivets and my favourite skimming trowel was beyond hope (I'd cut the heel down after a split but it got worse and the edge was jimping like...

    Now then..

    Hi folks, I'm Rhys, one half of Ernie Jeffrey & Rhys Plastering in York. Thought I'd join up as I found this place by accident (looking for Tyzack centenery trowels). I've been at this game for 12 years now and my mate has been at it for 30 odd years. Doing anything from patches to new builds...
