    Repairing small section in corner of the ceiling

    Fibafuse, then 3 coats of easifil 20, feathered out, the edges are already drying (the only bit that needs a rub if you know what your are doing), job done in an hour. At 6.48 I had sausage rolls, beans and chips.

    Mt black red original or permashape?

    MT carbon 14” pre-broken in but not permashape is my choice, matched with a 14”x 14” hawk is a perfect combo.

    Sparky £100 per hour

    Look at the shitholes he is working in - he says his rate on YouTube to pull in the work at that price. He needs to: 1. Buy a coat that fits him - looks a right c**t 2. Needs a massive punch in the face with his annoying Cambridge accent. :)

    Marshalltown DuraCork handle

    Feedback after a couple of weeks of work and it is brilliant. First off, It’s the same size as the MT wooden and red handle. There’s not a load of improvements over the standard handles but what i think is good about this DuraCork is when i clean the trowel off and a splash of water gets on the...

    Marshalltown DuraCork handle

    Got myself one of these today. By the look, feel & texture, it’s a mix of the normal red rubber with a spray of cork in it - as I like the Nela cork handle I thought I’d try it out. And the cost of it is about 10 mins work.

    Knee pads

    Blaklader work trouser knee pads are the really comfy - I wore Dickies before and they aren’t anywhere as good - their knee pads rode round the side of your knees during the day. I’ve been screeding the last couple of weeks and knees are fine.

    Not plastering related, but could do with some personal advice please.

    All I know is when the missus has a problem her friend just ‘cuddle her’ and say ‘nothing’... they don’t want solutions, they only want empathy. Maybe @JessThePlasterer can help out?

    Damp issue

    The skirting board looks in good condition - I’d ease that off and see what’s going on below that first. If ok below, salts have corroded the bead and wrecked the plaster.

    Keeping tools/buckets clean ...

    This is devilling-up. Plastic float with 4 screws/nails in the end protruding about a mill. Always do it on basecoats (even if the bag doesn’t say). The comb scratcher isn’t the right tool - that’s for render/stucco.

    Poor @Bolthosue - won’t have a scooby why grown men are talking about knickers - wonder if he’s a drawer sniffer?

    Keeping tools/buckets clean ...

    @Bolthosue - Get a spot board & stand to put your plaster on then clean your buckets straight away. If you get a build up on your hawk, just give it a scrape with a filling-knife. Same tools for rendering/plastering/stucco - UK tools are the same as yous have.
