    I'm 28 and have had sciatica for years, at times one side of my leg and foot goes numb. Had x-rays but all come back clear no sign of collapsed discs or even arthritis. Got an MRI scan and my nerve is running between two muscles in my behind. So when the swell I get sciatica fun times

    Tiger stripes lines

    Are you using multi finish? Worst stuff I've ever used! Cleaning the trowel after every 1 or 2 swipes with a shallow angle should prevent that nasty tiger from appearing [emoji33]

    Tiger stripes lines

    Happened to me yesterday, I found cleaning the trowel more often and less angle on trowel sorts it out.

    Bad multifinsh

    carlite is good to work with just a bit slow at going off, find myself spending more time looking at the walls than troweling them lol. if i use carlite it comes from the dublin factory, i beleive, and havn't had any issues with how it mixes or when im throwing it on

    Ultra Finish

    I use it for all backgrounds, bonding, board, floating, it holds it shape better than multi so if you had a hole in the wall from say removing an old nail were it pulls off the plaster too, it just fills the hole without sagging. my mate forgot to bond in an old socket box one time and he just...

    ive got an idea????

    heard someone using 1 part water 2 parts uni-bond, handfull of bonding and handful of cement. apparently it gives a really good key and you skim over it straight away as it dries within 15 mins
