Back on the tools....

Redundancy has thrust me full circle, apprentice at 16, subbing at 20 for 10 years, then got offered a job in Ford plant, unfortunately in 2 weeks time the gates will close for the last time and at 50 years of age I'm stocked with voltarol and ibuprofen ready for a few years back plastering. I've never stopped doing a bit luckily, even had little business out side of work at one point but became unmanageable. I'm obviously old school, s**t hot at render and set and all kinds of crazy stuff, but am no doubt going to get asked sooner or later for some fancy new render, which I do by hand and my knowledge is limited, and I think I'm starting to get on local suppliers nerves with all my questions tbh, (he deals mainly in parex, so I'm always directed to parex. he had me fine down a pine end in parmurex, awful), I get plenty of advice from reading through here, heres hoping for a lot lot more.

I'm fully booked until Christmas, and first 2 jobs are compete outsides, I've talked both into using s+c
