    Nearly 50

    The best thing you can do is hire one first and see if it works for you. The first machine I bought it never really worked and I wasted a few bob so the second time around I hired one first to make sure it was the right machine for me and for the work I was doing. Thankfully it's working out...

    Spraying 1.5 mm silicone on to a painted house??

    If the background is sound flat and smooth the finish will go on nice but I would contact the topcoat supplier first to make sure the primer is suitable for the surface your going over. The last thing you want is it all coming off in a few months

    How to clean dirty hand marks of Nano.

    I had a similar problem a few weeks ago one of the guys got bitumen on the topcoat when painting the plinth, he tried scrubbing it away but it just made the area around it fade.

    sponge floats and basecoat

    When basecoating ready for texture I've always used a sponge float to smooth everything out but I'm coming across basecoats that just can't be sponge floated, it's like the material dries just on the surface and drags.

When it comes to applying dash receiver how much flattening in is needed when...
