MR board is not designed to be skimmed, it is designed to be tiled directly onto or tape a jointed.
There is absolutely no point skimming MR board as the moisture resistance will be lost.
MR board has a slight waxy finish on the board surface. I have seen skim just she'll off this board untreated. As said, treat with thistle bond it as the spec but other bonding agents will be fine.

I use the direct building products one, thick and sticky.
Same as mate, I have a couple of subbies that work with me and try to book as much as possible. Sometimes you can move a few dates around, other times its impossible.

I think my paddle is a collomix one, currently in my Eibenstock. Has been used in other mixers that have died, most have a universal thread.
