    Advice on plasterboard ceiling layout

    Michael, not a tricky job, cut boards to fit halfway on rafters, take into account the size of your off cut for use on the next row, basic economics, you might have to start in the middle of the first line of boards over rafters to make this work, are you an engineer by any chance?

    Rotor stator temperature

    The D8-2 is for a 380-400rpm machine, friction causes the heat obviously, aggregate sharpness creates friction, if the R+S is a twister it's pre set pump pressure is tight, try one with adjustable jacket and set to 8-10 bar is my best guess.

    Liquid Screed for the DIYer

    Did a garden room at my place ( Insulated shed). On the floor I used 25mm celotex render mesh and weber 4160 at about 12mm, I had it left over from a job, tiled it and it's sound as a pound.

    i know a plasterer

    Bloke who's garden backs on to mine is out cutting grass every other day and she comes out pointing her finger at him and demanding it done her way all the time, when we first moved in I used to feel sorry for him, 14 years later I think the w**k*r deserves it, soppy tosser.

    Joddy mixer

    Yes buddy, wet the pan a bit turn it on then when powder starts to drop in turn water on, wait for a while then open material outlet until mixed plaster level is kept about right, great bit of kit.

    £650 a cut

    Three of us, I'm the one with the big bollox who prices and funds the fiasco, I don't work as hard as I used to which suites me Sir, we try and make 260 each for rendering in middle England but usually fall short, nice lifestyle though.

    Strata mp025

    Might be your start up procedure, as in too much water when you first prime mixing tube, if you put too much water in it impedes powder flow to chamber, try reducing it. I have never used a strata pump but try it and see if it helps with continuity. The above comments don't mean any harm, they...

    Second gap while spraying

    It will cause problems Tramp, the mixing process in the chamber is a delicate part of a mixerpumps operation, the powder introduction would be compromised creating issues. I have been using machines for a long time and have made every f**k up possible.

    Second gap while spraying

    Just cover the rotor head with water on initial start up, water inlet pipe on the top inlet. When you first put water to pump, open main outlet tap and and fill a bucket to bleed air out of line.

    Gentlemen, for some reason beyond my comprehension mixing hardwall through a continuous mixer or mixerpump ( lotus XS or ritmo) means it don't set quick enough on the wall in order to skim it same day and move on the next, it always sets in the mixing chamber which causes issues, have tried...

    Johnsons base coat

    Using parex maite at present on a large scale project , we don't spray it, too messy and loads of windows, we have a PFT lotus xs mixer, every man goes to mixer fills tub to his needs when he wants then lugs it up scaffold himself when required, seems to work for us. Exterior skimming really.

    Ritmo l slimline

    To start pump with k-rend I prime mixing chamber as usual then add a little powder and mix it with a screwdriver in the bottom before fitting mixing paddle, it seems to help initial start up.

    G5 vs G4

    Parts are still available, keep filters cleans and replace wear parts when needed, but get a good generator to power it, don't skimp and get a 12kva is my advice. ryan does a good 20kva at P1 shop.
