    Foam gun

    I love the stuff,especially when you're expected to fill a black hole that brian cox would be excited to see.

    i find the speed skims are doing more damage than good lately so stopped using them but the plaziflex seems to flatten lovely.

    Is my house held together with string and fag ash?

    i wouldn't worry,plaster was always grey in the 80s either carlite or syraphite and the scrim was a roll of hessian so all normal things to see on a house of that age.just fill it back in with sand and cement or bonding.

    i did a job for a woman years ago and as she was a single mum she pleaded with me to drop from £120 down to £100 a day.i took pity and agreed and then i heard her ordering a new bed for £900.never again

    in my experience just stay well away,as soon as you even start the work they have you and your money,learnt that lesson a long time ago.gut instinct is always the best gauge for these things so if it feels like aggro it probably will be.

    I've had it for years probably due to walkmans and i pods,i always have something on in the background and most nights i go to sleep with a podcast on so i don't home in on the ringing.nothing will stop it as its a sound that comes from the brain and not the ear.i heard a terrible story of a...

    Wire poking out of K-Rend

    their job wasn't to re route external wiring so not their fault at all unless you had previously ask for it to be hidden.

    Customers a knob

    write with a candle over the finished plaster,that should separate the emulsion and reveal a secret message

    so I'm stuck with 14 bags of plaster that aren't fit for purpose.about £112 of goods.would you charge more than that to swap them?

    Make good multi skim any one managed to get any sort of consistent finish

    i rang the make good suppliers(got the number from p1 stop shop)and explained i have 14 bags of the first batch and would like to swap for the new batch so i can give it a proper try.they were aware the first batch is shite and said they'd be happy to swap them,all i have to do is go to their...

    Becoming a self employed plasterer after being a lorry driver for 8 years..

    you could work for a maintenance company,as i remember they never expect too much from you in a day,you can take on privates gradually, use the firms materials and build your speed and confidence that way

    Make good .

    I still have the october batch and it does this,dries solid with a sticky wet patch (ooh matron) so you're left with small areas to fill.that photo is on a sheet of flat board so no rhyme nor reason for it to do that.

    Make good multi skim any one managed to get any sort of consistent finish

    i put pva on the boards as they'd been up a while and as it was a hot loft they would've sucked the life out of BG so was just being precautious with the make good to give me half a chance before it for the first coat on an artex ceiling i'm not even going to use it for that, its so...
