    .Dream team.

    Crown staples are best on plasterboard. Brad nails on over skim. Cordless brad gun to fire them in straight through the bead.

    Render is not great, but the light is pure stupidity!

    Weber pral m

    Just fill it in, then just cut it back to give a nice edge to work to. I pack out 10mm to give a bit of tolerance, I might scrape it back to 5mm if the reveal needs it to get the margin right.

    Weber pral m

    You take the ply off and work to the reveal when it's hard a day or 2 later. Rendaid on before the ply.

    Weber pral m

    No, piece of ply with a round hole in it fixed to the front.

    Weber pral m

    Get a piece of ply and cut a circle out to the required size with a router. Do the reveal first and the front when reveals are hard. I pack the ply 10 to 12mm off the wall.

    Spunky have you used it on external sand and cement? If not, do you think it would work ok.

    New trowel day

    You can get tennis elbow with any size trowel. I had it bad years ago, I had to wear the splints with the steel bar between velcro straps for 6 months. They stop you over turning you wrists. Plaster like a windmill and tennis elbow follows. I put on now with ox 18in, had tennis elbow with a 14in.

    Is blebs a northern thing like handboard instead of a hawk. Everyone I've worked with calls them blisters.

    Drive the screws in flat. Skim over them. Find them with strong magnet then let them out again. Only takes a minute.

    Use 75mm door linings set in the middle of the block work. Angle bead around either side of the opening.

    Which trowels

    I float with a 14in, but when you get used to skimming with an 18in it makes life so much easier.

    Basecoat Render

    If you asked Brad Pitt to shine a torch up his face, he would look like Herman Munster. No different with Render. Those soffit lights are a stupid idea.

    Dont be fooled

    I used the white version that make, not fit for purpose. They should not be allowed to sell it. A builder I worked for had 24 rolls of the shite.

    ragni trowel edge protectors

    As Andy said they must be so cheap to produce. Should come as standard when you buy a trowel.

    England v italy

    I said to all my mates Southgate was the the weakest link. He would not get a job in the prem. How Harry Kane was not subbed is beyond me. We had the best squad but he never looked like using it. Total clown

    Can my account be deleted please @Danny?

    Scotland have done well in the last 18 months Stuart. They must have surprised you and many others. Nice to have them back in a big tournament, they have been missed.

    Ceiling flatness after skimming

    I think people forget you are starting with a bucket of water which is level at the top when it is on the floor. After that everything I'd done free hand with a trowel.
  47. T


    Lol! I'm 62 years old mate. Done hundreds of houses all devil floated, eg in the days before drylining. When it was mentioned on this forum about using orange float I tried it and prefer that method. To date no skim has ever fallen off or delaminated. I must have been really lucky. Do you still...
