Own up mate, you got it as a freebie didn’t ya!I think everyone with experience would tweek it a bit themselves to customise it to how they like anyway.
That said, 3 hits of laying on flatten and trowel it's pretty much there. The actual finish edge of the blade is as close as I've seen to 'ready' out the box.
The burnishing - dressed down edge that is around 3mm on the face of a 'pre worn' marshall is a bit smaller on the nela elite.
So i think it wears in way quicker.
Well you should have, the way you’ve been promoting it for them mate.
No such joy.
Just hope I've helped people to either choose or leave them.
They won't be for everyone.
If my pics and info or opinion help people to choose to buy or dodge them, then that's worthwhile.
Don't think they're readily available for people to view in the tool shops just yet so... bit of a heads up is beneficial before splashing dough.
Any trowel that leaves lines on flat work go straight in the bin clearly bent the wrong wayI’ve used myself just today I got a bit sandpaper on it but still needs to wear in I just put first coat with it yeh it leaves lines but just take them out speedskim no mithier
Nothing against them what so ever mate. But in 20 odd years of plastering I have never seen a decent trowel with a short shank. Too much flex and they chatter. I can only speak from experience.
Are you trying to finish me off with such a gargantuan trowel?
