    Awkward pricing

    Sounds about right mate . Hate when it mates and relatives expect a discount . My sister in law works in Asda but I still pay full price for my shopping . And what can these so called relatives do for us do deserve a discount .

    He was hard as f**k and intimidating but was he a skilled boxer ? Or a mean fighter ? What you think the outcome would be if he fought ali if they were the same age ?

    Mid joint support

    Not when overboarding . Want to see if it can be used by just putting up full boards without measuring to every joist . Most old houses are imperial and there is too much waste and cuts

    Mid joint support

    That’s true . But I do a lot of over boarding in old houses and the joists are never right and end up with a lot of big off cuts .

    Carlite ultra finish

    I can remember using carlite finish over twenty years ago . It dried pink like multi . We used it over larges areas of hard wall because it took ages to set

    High suction walls

    Great tip . I’ve recently stated buying unibond or evostick. Can’t believe the difference well worth the extra cost . Tried explaining it to my mate but he can’t get his head around it . Cheap pva is false economy

    High suction walls

    Blue grit doesn’t kill suction . Just provides a key for smooth surfaces . Try some sbr in your pva . Works a treat .

    I bar on weber ocr

    I though you were supposed to do two passes . Especially if no scratch coat . I used ocr before in one pass and when it dried you could see every block

    Multi Skim Finish by Make Good

    Ok so I used the quick set bonding today . It’s also white and similar to knauf MP one coat . I’d even go as far to say it’s the same stuff. So i believe that all the aggregate is basically the ash Bi product from power station chimneys ? And none of their products contains gypsum. So their gear...

    Is this the answer?

    Yes it did it . Found it was better to get it flat and go over the next day

    Is this the answer?

    I used the knauf in the early 2000s . Strange gear. Looked ok when painted but found it hard to judge when in needed a trowel

    Live Q&A with British Gypsum, Friday 1 May

    I was on the chat last night as I’m in the scheme . Not much to talk about really just that they are allocating supplies to all merchants in a fair and even manner .They are also going to send out half a pallet of finish direct to members homes

    What’s sort of price is it ?

    Is this the answer?

    B&q is the only big boy who’s gonna stock it . All the other merchants are small independent ones . Are we the only trade that has to rely on one manufacturer of product ?
  49. megamix

    Is this the answer?

    It dries white . I imagine it’s similar to the old style knauf finish .
