Anyone else find that a skimming trowel can get to sharp for troweling up and can start sending your work backwards?
I find once broke there only any good for bout 3-6 months before getting to sharp.
Am i going crazy or anyone else think same?
Proper G** thread!
So what you use and why been using refiba s*p*r*lex 2 for last 12 months i think its probably more likexa carbon trowel if owt and still seem to need loads of water as in brush surface in front of trowel to trowel up.
Do you still need to do the same qith proper flexi...
Going back to the thread where @algeeman says he coats & flattens skim start to finish with just a flexi trowel how come in the main its throwned on as in the flex wont produce flat walls but yet a speedskim is floppy plastic or spat of your choice apparently gets walls super dooper flat whats...
Do we stilk think its the best all round workhirse available for heavy trade or anything out there that can beat it for power and reliability?
Or do you think there like marshal town now as in living on past name and market has caught up?
@BritishGypsum genuine question I dont care for any silly politician answers or % quotes that mean nothing to the man on the coal face.
When is this situation going to be resolved to the extent that just dropping into a merchant or diy store to collect a bag of finish or bonding will be as...
Genuinley...I've lost the knack...I need to go back to old school basics and start back at beginning with 2 proper coats from separate mixes.
I just cant ever be arsed to mix up again so blast it 1 coat on board at best same mix laid back in and either I've become shite or I just cant make it...
Now I'm back under 20 stone might amuse the lads and buy some again!
Money no object cant spend it on owt else!

Looking at the double sided dura stilts apose to single side dura stilts?
Magnesium v aluminium?
I will bet my house on our trade being left in a situation where by there is still not sufficient stock of materials to work before the goverment funding finishes end of June.
Theres absolutely no way on this planet this stock situation will be resolved in 4 weeks time as demand and peoples...
So it would seem the mandate from the goverment in England is allowing construction to work all be it would seem a grey area.
As a trade we are at your mercy with regards to stock from merchants. Appreciate you cannot be to specific but as many small limited companies & sole traders we will...
Out of curiosity what is the current situation with merchants & plastering materials?
Am I right in thinking we are down to just wickes & bq.???
Also as BG is shutdown am I correct to think places have now pretty much run out of gear?
Starting to get selfish nobheads phoning now and I just...
No guna lie after a good start heads really starting to wobble.
This is 2nd morning I've woke up with no purpose, all family are ok and dont need owt, wifes working from home, kids got bits of homework and then play with there mates on computers.
I honestly dont know what to do with myself...
Out of curiosity who's now currently working and who is sitting it out?
P.s I'm not judging anyone we will all have different financial situations and financial health.
Il go 1st I'm not back until after lockdown!
I'm a big boris fan so I'm not out to dig him.
But I cant believe that nobody proofed that speech with ref to work " if absolutely nesacerry if unable to work from home"
That was so unclear and open to interpretation. On the other hand nichola sturgeon was crystal clear "only essential work"...
I get what you was on about now other week with that early wetup with splash brush and trowel when you 1 coat!
Seems soooooo wrong but works a F*****g treat dont it with them G** flex bollox blue handle things!
Down with kids me!!!
I know it's silly & not clever but I've never been able to wear a mask when needed.
It's never bothered me before and strangely still doesn't bother me at work but last few months seem to cough alot in the evening.
Is anyone else like this?
I have absoloutley no idea why ive just done it but just walked out of merchants with 1 of them stupid 16" refina plaziflex thing!

ZOMBIE G** T.H.R.E.A.D
Got loads of silly internal & external angles to do on a job.
Normally offer cove around the angles & pencil line ceiling & walls where they intersect then offer cove up and transfer pencil lines onto cove.
Then hold cove in a mitre block and cut free hand though bit hit & miss.
What do you...
Phhhh piss & wind!!!
Ok serious question am i missing a trick????
Had a lad on an extension this week that we couldnt get to for a builder. Called in yesterday expecting the usual disappointment.
Flawless, best work ive see in a long time tbh, noticed on the wibdow sill 2 very worn in plastic...
Bit miffed today had a very experienced couple of renders cover a job for us base coating out a small single story extension.
All gear on job no scaffold all straight forward work admittedly the odd bad bit of dodgy blockwork to get over but nothing major a nice stress free easy job really...
Has anyone got 12months of constant site use rendering & house bashing with adhesive skim etc to give a balanced review???
Would mainly want it for dot & skim & thin coat renders!
If so which one?
How have batteries held up?
The guy on you tube reviews seems like a right bellend...
