    Carbon Steel or Stainless Steel

    Best setters I've had have been carbon. The metal remains true. Some SS I've had have warped. Normally once they have become good for setting.

    3/2 lime putty finish not curing

    There is a lot of stuff in that building at 100% relative humidity . I would suggest gauging your fine stuff with plaster of Paris to make it hydraulic . But only if your float coat is 100 % dry .

    The Makita UT1600 1800w Plaster Mixer Review

    Good drill !! On the subject of over spin. Leave the drill in the plaster until stopped. The plasters viscosity will rapidly reduce the drills spin on, after power off. Why would any one have a drill still rotating after they have removed it from a mix, apart from wanting to Tyrolean the...

    Utiform Quattro vs m tech m 300

    Purchased an M Tec from Ryan 4 years ago. This machine has performed outstandingly , never missed a beat , only had to replace wear and tear parts such as the R/S , spray nozzles and dossing screws. Only negative I have on this machine is that it's bulky ness and small wheels make it awkward to...

    How low can you go ??? . I've done as low as 10mm . Well bonded .
  29. mark ross


    If you have the tolerance , which hasn't been established . Just lay a traditional Sbr modified screed , to a cement / SBR slurry . Go 25mm on highest point to 75mm lowest point .
  30. mark ross


    Watch how you cast. Cast straight on . Go up, down , left or right and you will distort the butter coat . And it will all look **** .

    Vat on a new build?

    A word of advise. If your zero rating invoices for " new build " , make sure you gather some proof that the contract was new build. If you have an inspection you may be asked for evidence. A copy of the completion certificate will suffice.

    ashlar and raised quions

    The questions you are asking here are like " how long is a piece of string ?" . The work will take as long as it takes you as a gang. Are you fast or slow ??
