    Seeing as you brought it to our attention

    Not sure that BG give a feck about opinions on this forum. Not sure how many regulars there are on here, but it's a tiny fraction of all the plasterers in the uk and BG have a virtual monopoly so they know we can't vote with our cash.

    Never Can Have Enough Contacts!

    You say this in jest, but in Basingstoke they're trying to shut the Irish center down.

    Washing work clothes

    Makes me laugh at the merchants in the mornings. Everyone in the same trousers, puffer vests and beige timberland boots. Might as well be a uniform. Look like a bunch of cnuts.

    Advice on speed skim

    Have to say I love my speedskim. BUT. It doesn't make you quicker. I reckon it makes your job easier on your bones though. Also, on a reskim, 2 walls is enough. Like flynnyman says, the only way to get quicker is to practice.
