Would any plasterers be interested in learning to airless spray plaster?

I’m thinking it might be more a thing for painters but would like to know what you think about it?

I think there is money to be made in it

Lol thought I might get that from plasterers being one my self. I’ve put the same question on a painters forum to see what they say.

See this as a out of the day to day grind and retirement

Did a few months of airless for a crew In Manchester with a graco. It's a top system if the drylinings tidy . Half of what we sprayed was on to do rough metal studs which made it hard work thanks to our resident Eastern Europeans .

The stud work/boarding needs to be pretty good but you can get away with s**t (same as skim) when uv used it fir a while. I’ve always said my finish will be as good as the boarding

I don’t do site work anymore so follow my own work. Do you think anybody you work with would be interested in learning to spray plaster? I’m not looking for names numbers anything just thinking of starting a new business teaching people

Loads of lads would be definitely. But generally they'd just go with a gang for a few days because its piss easy to do

I agree with you. Think it’s more for painters. I had to go on a 2 day course 2 years ago, cause the guy I work for got a grant. There was 6 of us must be 300 each per day??? Easy money

I’m doing big one off builds with loads of glass. Airless is on the spec as it’s lots of natural light

IMHO if there was serious, ongoing money to be made from teaching airless plastering then the people already involved in the training sector would be all over it.
