3 Guages Or 2 Big 2 mix Guages?

#1
Dont know how you approach it but i have been doing 3 guages for the past two years when on price and just accepting long days! I always use the same mix to lay down and is a heavy day. Was wondering if 2 bigger guages useing 2 mixs would be good for similar out put, and possibly quicker overall in you oppinion? Im looking to maimise output/retain quality and know my limit with one mix.

Do both see what works out best. How many bags you knock up when laying in with same gear?

I find after put a bag on say your laying in with stiffish gear so really after that your knackered unless there's another way

Always two coat, fresh gear to lay in and then a bit of nicking, wardrobe or bathroom walls whilst you're scratching your bollox.

Why try to fix what works and has done for years
Exactly. People forget that 2 coats adds strength too.

I was working alongside a seasoned one coated before on board. By the time he filled all his beads n joints out i was laying the room down.

Can’t see on any planet one coat being better. If board has dry spot etc you’re filling out with fat

ive got 2 days left in a 16 room farm house.
i was told it needed doing in 10 days.
every room different height with different shaped rooms...some ceilings angles straight some rounded.
the owner wanted all sorts doing.
oak beams running though rooms and all that shite.
i used my own brain and skimmed it how i wanted.
im the spread not them.
rooms over 4m high were 1 coated with rounded ceilings never filled anything out just 1 coated all of them.
the biggest room on ground floor was 2 coated it was really hot i could bang it in 1 hit.
il have 16 rooms done in 9 days.
its getting sprayed on monday.
il have 1 room left to finish then.
hopefully if phone works il post up pics.....an absolute bollocks of a house.
but im 100% positive it will all paint spot on.
