    Wooden corner bead / modern alternatives

    Think this is being over thought. You can walk into b an q an search for wood dowling. Its not far off the original sizes they used on lath an plaster. Doesn’t matter what material you use.. the plaster will hairline crack down the connection.

    Best way to get into plastering?

    Everything you said bud is correct! Look for helping other plasterers an find your own feet that way. Courses is a option but limited in situations etc. All good plastering is experience really. Don’t be bought into the qualification side of it. I’ve seen plenty level 3 plasteres work an it’s...

    Idiots everywhere.

    Think your right.. price your worth. Too many ones scrapping for the cheap price an never getting any further. Just because the guy is super busy doesn’t mean he’s making more than you. Anyone can be stacked with work when your pricing £120 a day. Or is the guy who’s pricing high an only getting...

    The funniest part.. the joiner who passed my details on said the man of the house asked if I was good at my job as he thought I looked young. 33 ffs! How old you ment to look to be a good plasterer? Dina half get them.

    ha! Done a woman’s kitchen the other week. After I was done she said “ just to let you know I like a wee bargain so if I pay you cash I’d appreciate it “ while standing in her big fancy house. Looked at her an thought you miserable git. That’s how people like you have houses like this.

    Just England from what I heard a few weeks ago. There’s a lot of s**t going on behind closed doors but people are too busy putting a mask on to walk outside to a deadly virus that McDonald’s managed to stay open through the whole thing! Stay save an keep your head buried in the gullible sand pit

    Trowels getting to sharp!

    The illusion you need mega pressure to plaster a wall! False an a bad habit. Trowel does the work so you don’t have to. Carbon all day everyday.

    Show me the money.

    Maybe so but as domestic work goes.. can’t see much changing for the spreads. Costumers have leaned a lot more into plastering again rather taping! Only pleb joiners still doing taping the greedy c**ts. Amount of joiners ask me to do something but they tape. f**k off. Fell out with loads.

    End of year returns

    Ah right ok. So if you’ve been in business for 5 years or so..hmrc expect you to be making the same as the business who’s say been established for 10 plus years? Most guys are starting business run for 3/5 years an closing down an start up again.

    End of year returns

    I noticed when the 4th grant came available an when applying it said something about checking bank accounts etc an that never happened on the first 3. I believe it’s a fear tactic but I’m terrified of Covid an just can’t chance working in anyone’s homes. It’s just far to scary. My minds been all...

    I hardly ever work on new builds. Sprit level or sometimes the trust worthy eye levels do better when other things are off. Cant use sprit levels all the time. Just google them, I can’t remember where I last got mine. Was a local shop but plenty online. The pin ones are good but sometimes you...

    How much you say is fair

    Way too many old plasterers told me not to go down this route. Stick to yourself an a lab maybe two labs. Any more isn’t worth it unless you go big. So I’ve stayed away from this issue myself.

    I’m booked in at the Scottish lime centre trust. On a lime rendering course. Yeah i know it’s a different game altogether but find myself more interested in traditional building an so forth.

    Totally agree here.. it’s not like you don’t have kids. My girlfriend does beauty an when she talks to girls who have 3 kids etc they feel they have to keep going as the thought of not having any more baby’s gives them a sense of panic/anxiety of some sort. I don’t know could be something worth...
