    Mixing drill repair

    Trouble is they took long enough to look at it as they was busy and I can only use my crap spare for so long. Might still get a second opinion and just get another one anyway.

    Mixing drill repair

    Quick update, know it was a long time ago but I've just been quoted £230 to fix it. Apparently the armature and brushes have gone. New drill it is then

    Sorry but that is rough as f***. Don't really know where to begin but I think you already know that ain't nowhere near good enough.

    Mixing drill repair

    Got a refina mixing drill that is on its last legs, only had for about 4 years so a bit disappointed it's packing up. I've replaced the fuse and rewired it but it pops and sparks whenever I give it power, still runs just feels like it's going to blow up. Is there any way of fixing it or is it...

    Euro 2020/21

    As an Englishman, I would like to have seen Scotland get something out of that game. However they simply ain't good enough, Czech Republic was probably their best bet of getting points as well. Tournament over

    Need advice on a job guys

    As expected to be honest, was hoping someone would have a genius solution to get it all off easy peasy but I'm just dreaming. Day rate it is then.. B*****d! Might get some H herbert to do it, trouble is I don't know many. I think that's a good thing though right

    Bet 365 boss

    Thumbs up to the pub poker, or poker in general to be honest. That is the only type of gambling I do on the regular and gambling is a very loose term. At least with poker you play against players and not the house, game of skill and not chance.

    Customer didn't want d+d and I'm not gonna argue with it, makes not that much difference to me as well. Nice to have a bit of a change from boarding. Both have pros and cons in fairness.

    Access help or advice??

    Yeah you gotta now just in case, I think I decided to get one shortly after working with my old man. We was d+d a house and he went to trim reveals with Stanley and he must have slipped slightly and basically put the whole blade through that bit of skin in between thumb and index finger.

    Hello everyone, Been a while since I've been on here but I've been flat out during lockdown. So got a job coming up where landing ceiling needs overboarding, skim and big stairwall needs float and setting. It's a dog leg staircase so don't know what's best? Don't think ladders will do the trick...

    Make good bonding

    In all honesty, I've used their quick set bonding, normal bonding and the dry wall adhesive. I think all of those are really good to be fair. As for the skim... Wouldn't go near it with a barge pole, utter crap. Just about to use the magic mix now on a light stipple ceiling with their bonding...

    I'm not working currently, haven't been for a while now but I am curious as to when plaster will be back in stock. Does anyone know of any news regarding this?? Out of stock within 60 miles at B&Q, wickes, travis, jewsons, ccf and anywhere else for that matter - people even selling em for £50 a...

    Was trying to figure out who then I see your picture... Now it all makes sense, looks a good player I can't see how you would miss him that much you're always up there. We need him more than you ;)

    What is going on with multi finish!?

    Bought from Ashford, Kent, date is December 2019

    What is going on with multi finish!?

    Can't see how that would work but you never know, anything would have been better than the utter crap I just used. But does mean you need a bag of dab to hand which I don't

    What is going on with multi finish!?

    Just picked up some board finish for second hit, no problems whatsoever now. Holding back a lot more between coats

    What is going on with multi finish!?

    Well I've got batch number so I will send to BG I used multi couple of months ago and didn't really have trouble then. My problem with it now is it just seems to be more miss than hit. Or... Maybe I am genuinely getting worse??
  38. TedTheSpread92

    What is going on with multi finish!?

    Okay I want to actually know what the hell is going on with multi finish it is definitely not the same. It's behaving like my trowel hasn't worn in yet, tears slightly on final trowels?? Feels stodgy, gluey, seems gritty and coarser than normal. My question is most of my work is overskim can I...

    Council charging for waste now!

    So many ideas and obviously looks like it isn't just me in this position then. I think from now on I will just leave the rubbish with customer and if its a big job - skip.

    Council charging for waste now!

    So I know this isn't exactly an interesting topic but where I live in Ashford, Kent the council are now charging £6 per sheet or bag of plasterboard and £4 per sack of rubble/hardcore, plaster once set is classed as rubble so as you can imagine this is going to add up. Who knows of a better way...

    Bonding Agents/stabilisers/primers!??

    I was under the impression you diluted the sbr down with water at 50-50 leave to dry then pva as normal
  42. TedTheSpread92

    Bonding Agents/stabilisers/primers!??

    This is what I am talking about here, lots swear by PVA alone and there are those out there who use completely different products. My old man said to me just the other day that PVA was pretty much the only thing that was readily available. But then it's a different age now with lots and lots of...

    About 50-50 dilute or something else?
  45. TedTheSpread92

    Bonding Agents/stabilisers/primers!??

    Okay fair enough, now is it then good to get straight on with skim once dry
  46. TedTheSpread92

    Bonding Agents/stabilisers/primers!??

    And do you have to dilute the sbr down first. Let it dry completely or go over it when tacky??
  47. TedTheSpread92

    Bonding Agents/stabilisers/primers!??

    Love this job haha. No matter how much we know always something round the corner that makes you feel like you're back at school. So I'm guessing here then if the suction is very high sbr day before will do the trick? Never used it to be fair haven't needed to but don't want that happening again...
  48. TedTheSpread92

    Bonding Agents/stabilisers/primers!??

    Honestly, I have always used PVA to be fair however my last job stumped me was going over walls which had wallpaper taken off and was taken back to old concrete surface. Knew it would pull in quick just from touching it so gave it a good primer coat the day before, then another two the next day...

    Bonding Agents/stabilisers/primers!??

    Okay so it's an absolute minefield out there at the minute with all the different products out there. I just want to know what is your preferred method when it comes to dealing with high suction backgrounds. Wickes bonding agent, PVA, SBR, Blue grit, gypPrime, bond-it. As I'm aware it does...
