Well as you are a capable spread Casper I think you will be amazed as me just how quick your gauges/sets will be by being able to go over sooner without water! I always thought the idea of no water troweling up was nonsence but here I am holding my hand up admitting I was wrong!
Feel free to share your thoughts on the forum, I only did 2 small gauges/sets just in case but was so easy and all I did on the last two trowels was wipe the blade with my flat brush clean and that was it, no water splashed on the wall at allGot my 16" s*p*r*lex through today. Looking forward to trying it on Saturday. Have to say at the minute can't see how it can be that special but we shall see...
glad you like it marshy :RpS_thumbsup:Hello lads n lasses,
As promised I used my new 16" stainless s*p*r*lex today on a small boarded out room about 4x3.5m2 and I'm absolutely gobsmacked!! All troweled to a top finish WITHOUT water!! I'm still perplexed as it goes against everything I have ever known,shown or trained to do!!??
The only water I used was a quick wipe of the blade every so often on the last 2 trowels. I admit I still have some tweaking regarding my timing on going over the plaster but I was in genuine awe over this trowel.
A lot of you know I harp on about being old school prefering sand/cement to anything else etc but if it wasn't for some of your reviews on these trowels I'd have carried on in my stubborn ways. So I'm just glad I took the gamble on your good advice and my only regret is not doing it sooner!
I have never ever finished any skim without the odd splash of water and using this trowel you simply don't need to. My 2 gauges/sets were done much quicker without hardly any pressure on the old arms/shoulders as normal polishing up.
If anybody wants a trowel to save time and effort on their skimming work? The stainless s*p*r*lex trowel is a must for you!! Trust me and I never say this without meaning it, you won't be dissapointed!!
Cheers for reading my drivvle,
