    tadelakt substrates

    Right. It's been sometime, I went AWOL for a bit ;) This thread is an embarrassment because of the way it was trolled. Well done to other people who chipped in later though :) There's a lot of experience and knowledge out there that deserves some recognition. So, since this thread seems to...

    Insulated Render question

    Right you cagey bunch of lego assemblers, quick question about insulated render. Anyone used it, got any thoughts on it (yeah I know that's difficult for some of yous). At the moment I'm coming across this Italiano stuff that's more expensive than frigging gold dust. Diathonite. And there's...

    Eye care - A warning

    if it's a domestic, get your head under a tap asap. Or better still get the shower head on it for as long as you can bear it.

    Patching Lime

    Just had a call from a Sparkie mate. Yeah I know the shame, still he wants some advice on a heritage job he's done some wiring on. He's managed to chip some lime off a ceiling and he wants to patch it. What's the best option for him - I don't want to do it.

    bubbles in sand cement render!

    I see them sometimes, it's just temporary. Once the water has been wicked into the scratch the bubble will go down.

    Can you water down thistle bond it ?

    Got hold of some microgobetis for a s & c render on a blockwork xtension. Worked really well on that, really well. Remember reading on here about people raving about it for reskims. So with what was left over I used it on a reskim on some really bad walls in a terrace. The walls were a mix of...

    Plaster in the eye

    Hate plumbers

    I got a free boiler off my mate who installs them. I agreed to skim a room for him if he installed it gratis. It's an older vaillant (bout 5 yrs old) that was ripped out of a house and replaced with new one. It's a bit of a gamble sometimes whether they work alright and there were some leaky...

    Art student + shed + plaster = HELP!

    hmmm maybe you could disassemble the shed and paint the slats with bondit and skim them. Then stick it back together?

    Looking for a decent box rule.

    scaffold is made of galvanised steel. That's magnetic. If it's made of lightweight aluminum then it's not magnetic.

    My First Disaster

    If it's an old wall, I'd assume it's a lime based plaster on there. Old lime work reacts with gypsum, it goes off really quickly and you'll really struggle to get a good finish. Using SBR won't help! Follow the previous advice and use a bonding agent or failing that buy some stabiliser and mix...

    oops, so it was just a reskim on some existing plaster?! If that's the case then BG are well and truly fcked thought it was too good to be true when they first starting talking about it.

    getting electric shocks whilst plastering

    think i've mentioned this before, but avoid shocks on your left hand. Sparky mate of mine told me, he used to fix tv's and they had to hold their left hands behind their backs. If you get a shock through your left side it will go to your heart. That's a bit of your anatomy you don't want current...
