Worked with different spreads that use them differently. Some use on every pass. For me I'd don't like to use on first pass I just run a small brush down. I wait til set has picked up a bit then I put a blob of stiff gear on tip of corner Trowell then run down. Personally get better results when corner is firmer.

Kick his arse and tell him not to be such a pansy, you have to make him man up and use a twitch

What trouble are you having using a twitch if you have a groove it must be gapped

I got an old school style Putz angle trowel from P1SS. Takes a bit of getting used to but when you do it’s better than the drywall type.

i flatten everthing down then use it.
dont touch it again until near end of set....bear in mind im 1 coating on board work.
each set would be different on differnt backgrounds and plastering....and something i think ...woo first beer all week :birra:

Poor lad suppose to be an apprentice and his boss dunt even know how to use a corner trowel!!!
In my defence i asked how to 100 percent not get a groove . I know guys who been doing it longer then me and who i regard as top plasterers but still leave a groove on some corners . As for lad his corners are cock on he just runs a inch brush down em little b*****d . Anyway he dont need to worry bout corners he.s enjoying doing all big ceilings lol

Tried many a corner trowel and the Ragni one gets them right every time. Best angle trowel I have ever bought. Too get the lines out right give it a last corner either just before or just afte you hard trowel the walls and the corners come out sweet :)
