    M tech 200

    I got a second hand m200 aswell. Had the same thing when spraying parex. The needle on back pressure was jumping about a bit so nipped up r n s and it cured it for a short time then I got a new r n s and haven't used it since. The k4 has been getting used on every job since then. Sent from my...

    It's not an eze gun it's just normal gun with a material shut off valve. Took that straight off after cleaning machine out! More hassle then it's worth.. @Plasterers1StopShop have you got m200 r n s in stock? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Had a few black bits today when I was scraping back some k1. Still sprayed well but I used a different gun today with material shut off valve and pressure backed up into the mixing chamber and It got blocked up. I had to clamp the r n s other day as the pressure gauge was jumping about and we...

    Pressure testing

    Because they were using it for tough coat on some houses whatever that is. Think he brought the machine from someone second hand aswell who had slipped a disc in his back then they done them houses then went back boarding and skimming so had no use for it. All my work now is based on machine...

    Yep went through very well. Speed 4, 260 water, 15m hose and it was 12 bar. Pressure was jumping a bit so tightened the rns up 1/4 turn and it was fine. Never had a clampable stator before so that was new too!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I like the k4 best at the moment. I sprayed some parex today for the first time using the m200 for the first proper time and it went well really so I'm sure once I get used to the m200 ill have as much faith in that as I do the k4. K4 hasn't let me down once since i had a few teething problems...

    Do any of you guys do pressure tests on your r n s to see if it needs changing or tightening before setting machine up? If so how do you do it? Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    K-Rend HP Base Coat Cure Time

    Total thickness should be 15-16mm. What's the back ground? We always use hpx base coat at 5mm with mesh and scratched for base coat then k1 top coat at 12mm scraped back to beads to get 15mm. If your plasterer wants to do 8-10mm base and 10mm top coat you're going to need 20mm beads Sent from...

    Just get a water butt full of water and bang 2 tubs of wickes in and use that water for mixing. That's what we have been spraying k1 with over hpx base and I can't believe it when I get in my van at 4pm to go home and it's only been 10 degrees with no sun Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    We are meshing as we go aswell so that slows us down a bit and it's making more mess then I'd like but it's better then carrying all that shite up the scaffold and it's saving wear and tear on the spreading arms! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rite iv had a few goes at it and it's definitely better then troweling it on. Iv made it wetter and it's a lot better to spray but how do I get it to spray more of an open fan so it stops slumping down the wall before I get a chance to put a trowel over it. Will a bigger spray cap do this? I'm...
