    Portuguese plaster

    I've been working in Spain on and off the last two years. Took plaster out with us as I didn't like the local gear saying that found the sand cement reasonable. Got to add I've never met anybody lazier than the Spanish. Only word I learned was tomorrow.

    Been to price a job and boards are back to front. Can they be skimmed thinking over grit or is there any other options not really an option to reverse them as most of it is angled cuts.

    This Shocked Me.

    I've had this as well , funny thing is they had a figure of £3000. Asked him how he came up with that. Told me he was a business man and he reads up on things. He lives across from me cheers me up when I look over and see the state of it.
