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.

Asked how long it takes to get trained . Both plasterers said 10 years . Thought they were joking. Since joining here still only know tip of iceberg
It's a bit like driving. Doesn't take long to pass a test but spend the rest of your life learning to drive
