    Airless plaster sprayer.

    Thinking about selling my airless plaster set up. Graco GMax 5900HD, 90ltr hopper with bag roller. Brand new 30m spare hose. It’s not getting the use it should, as I’m too busy boarding to take on airless work. Everything is in excellent condition. Lots of spare tips. Looking for £2500 plus...

    New tool Saturday

    One of my most frequently used pieces of kit. My first one has lasted 10 yrs, but a couple of the welds have broken, so thought I’d get a new one. Given my old one to a plasterer mate who puts a lot of work my way.

    FFP3 masks

    The local shipyard have donated a number of these FFP3 masks to the care home that my partner manages. They aren’t suitable for the staff to use as they aren’t surgical. If any of you would like a couple, pm me your details and I’ll post them to you. Ideal when sanding and mixing.

    Recommendation needed.

    I need a good boarder. Ideally someone who can dab as well, for work in mid to west Cornwall. Must be tidy, own kit and transport. Anyone?

    Credit checks on customers.

    You boys that sub contract. Do you credit check contractors beforehand? Had my doubts about a company that want me to do about £8k a month business with them. Paid £30 to Experian today for a credit report on them. It was f**k**g shocking!

    Every time I log on, a f**k**g pop up comes up saying I’ve won an iPhone, and I can’t go back to the forums. What’s that all about?

    Thought I'd give Makita the benefit of the doubt and yesterday I ordered a framing nail gun. It turned up at lunchtime and guess what? doesn't f**k**g work.

    Laminate flooring that looks like tiles

    Herbie pinched a whole gammon joint off the kitchen side this morning and ate half of it on the laminate flooring that looks like tiles. @irish_spread

    Most Hated Tool

    Do you have a tool that you use that you really hate? I've had a T-square that I use when boarding. I've had it for years, and it does its job, but it is forever getting in the way, falling over when I rest it against things, and then it gets snagged on my hi vis or tool belt on occasion. Today...

    Siniat/G-Tec/Lafarge Cove Adhesive

    What utter dogshit that stuff is. Goes lumpy after less than half an hour and is coarse as f@ck. I think I'd rather use dogshit to put coving up with than that rubbish. Had five rooms of Sculptured cove to do today, customer supplying the gear. Gave up after 2 rooms. ******* wound me up.

    Savolit Wood Wall Boards.

    Have any of you had any experience with this wall lining system, or had any issues with it? An architect client of mine used this system on a project. The boards were fixed to the internal framework in a timber framed house, 50 mm boards on the inside of the external walls and 15 mm (I think)...

    I have been working as a self employed dryliner for longer now than I care to remember and make a fair living doing so. Could someone please tell me how much to charge and maybe even go and look at my jobs and price them for me as I am stupid as fcuk. Thankyou please. I have some flats to price...

    Anybody had any problems with this? I did hear that it fucks your batteries, but don't know if this is an old electricians tale.

    Job Tomorrow. 25/12/11

    Can anybody help me out tomorrow? I need some plastering doing on the window reveals in my lounge. I fed up with looking at the hacked off plaster from when the new window was fitted. We are out to lunch on Xmas day for a few hours so would appreciate it doing then. Anyone available? Can pay you...

    How F****** Hard Is It.......

    To use a tape, knife and rasp? The best bit was where the boarders filled in above a doorway with an offcut of 15mm plank expecting it to finish at the same level as the 12.5mm either side. re***ds!
  44. TonyM

    Some nice big walls for a change.

    Me and a mate have a couple of thousand metres to keep us occupied with for a few weekends.

    Truly Shocking.

    There are a team of Polish builders building a terrace of 6 or 7 houses in my village, on and off for the past 6 months. When I went to work this morning, the gable end was in block. I passed through at lunchtime and it looked like they had scratched it, but there weren't any scratches visible...

    Nice Coving!

    Got about 130 metres of cornice to put up over the next few days. Shame they stacked it on top of each other and ruined a couple hundred quids worth.
