    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.

    Duraflex v Permaflex

    What is the difference? So far, what I think I know is Marshalltown produce either a carbon or stainless steel xtralight finishing trowels - I’m looking for a 14x5 ideally carbon and pre-broken in (but not Permashape), do they make that?

    Tear off that skirt

    That's what she asked me to do - just not that type of skirt! Anyway, off came the skirting boards as she wants the walls to run into the concrete tiles - clean lines. I'm going to use stop beads to form the junction unless anyone got a better idea? Why do I always get customers with OCD ideas...

    Feather edge v darby

    When I started labouring, some of the blokes I worked with used feather edges and some used Darby's, for ruling off S&C/renders or lightweight plaster (I was and still am a feather edge user). The Darby too me always seems to be a 'rule' mainly to push material around a wall and scrape off high...

    What was your 1st motor?

    I forgotten loads of them but never forgot the first...Ford Capri 1.6 LS, colour fire-engine red with blue checked (almost Burberry but not that Chav) interior seats - what a car. A bit crushed in the back, that's where tall boy sat (he was a short arse). Up front driving, you were spoilt for room.
