This pargeting job was very interesting. See the video.

The external angles are all formed using timber rules, as always when using lime.

Nice work! What kind of material do you cut your profile into for your template, it looks like wood? There's a lot of scrap aluminum around these parts and that's what I've been using for quite a while. Timber rules- around here I was taught to call it striping out your angles. I'll have to watch the video. Nice to see that they are keeping this kind of work alive over there.:RpS_thumbsup:

That's some nice work mate, I pargetted a large extension some years ago (1st attempt I wish there was you tube and the like available then). Overall I was very pleased with the job.
Only do internals now really, it never stops raining long enough to bother going outside.
Keep up the good work fella:RpS_thumbup:

@BrummieTrev Are these all your own jobs?
I just dont have the right contacts to get invited to tender for such work, Ive only been self employed for a couple of years and been very fortunate to get all this work through another plastering company. I only built my website in April so im still trying to get established in google etc..... Although things are starting to come in through the website so my luck may well be about to change:)

The wooden profile you see in the picture is just a muffle for coring out to within 5mm of the finish, behind that is the finishing profile cut and filed out of zinc. (1mm gauge)

@Nisus, it was Trumpers Ltd who I used to work for, they were owned by a building restoration company Sapcotes, they went bust and then Linfords another restoration company brought Trumpers and they also went bust hence the reason I have very little contacts because as an employee they make sure you dont get involved directly with architects and conservation officers etc..which is why im hoping people will see my work and what I can do.
