So as you are all aware now I’m a moderator, taking some of the stress off @Danny as our daily post count is really rocketing lately, we’r swamped under with new member activations and marketing meetings etc.

So, up for grabs (thanks for mike @ Nela) is the new nela corner trowel. Available in 90 or or 103 degrees. I don’t want to tell you how to plaster but if you know your s**t you’ll have the 103.

so how do you win it?

When you was taught to plaster you got lots of advice and tips. Was there a bit of advice that didn’t make sense at the time but years later it did?

Best story wins

@ChrispyUK will select a winner

Good luck guys

I got told the 6P's from a spread years ago.
Perfect preparation prevents piss poor performance. If the job isn't done right from the start it won't be right at the end.

One of the tradesmen were I served my time said I'd never be a plasterer if I lived to be a hundred, well only 50 years to go.

Start by presuming that everyone you meet is a cnut. You'll be amazed at how infrequently you're proved wrong. On the few occasions you are, you'll be much happier than if you try it the other way.

It's a bit like driving. Doesn't take long to pass a test but spend the rest of your life learning to drive
