Yeah I've an internal trowel for those junctures Paul and strangely I manage to leave a good finish without the need to run a brush down it.

I bow to your greatness....

We are not worthy, we are just slumdogs who leave brushmarks all over our work! :rolleyes)

Come on Andrew, do you really think everyone who uses an angle brush leaves **** work?

Theres more to it than that....

I honestly don't know having never felt the need to finish an internal with a brush, I just don't get it.

I did have a fella come on site to do a house for me some years back and after he'd finished and gone after his first day skimming I went to have a look round his work. All looked neat and tidy apart from every internal having been finished with a brush, so I got my internal and tidied them up as best I could and pointed out the error of his ways the next morning. He bucked up and did quite a few houses for me before slipping back into his old ways and I got shot.

I remember this argument coming up on here before, the whole wet angle trowel,brush,twitcher finish debate. I think it's irrelevant which technique you use so long as the finish is good.

Used to use a brush as i was taught without a corner trowel because the boss said what if it breaks or you lose it etc. Now I just use a corner trowel. I do still use a brush on ceiling lines though if ceiling has already been done. Personally its easier for me to do wet angles. None of this opposites b*ll***s. What happens when you get a job like just the walls in a box bedroom. 15.-20m2 max. Are you going to do 2 arse botheringly small hits and be there all day lol

I think if your after earning decent pricework money the angle tool is essential, if you smash a 3x4 room on ln one hit thats getting on for 25 linear mtrs of angles to pull in. why use a brush if you can finish it with steel,
Paintbrushes are for painters, trowels are for plasterers imho.

Well if all you northeners are finishing the internals with a brush I'd say you can't do wet angles either.

Alright bud bit harsh. I take a lot of pride in my work. I never advertise and work soley off recommendation. I still have a lot to learn of that I'm sure but I certainly wouldn't deem myself **** thanks. That's just how I do it and it works for me

have a good evening

The only way of achieving sharpe angles with no angle trowel is to do opposite walls ,and work into hard angles on the next throw on ImageUploadedByThe Plasterers Forum1382255315.437955.jpg

You can't beat plastering into a hard angle. Cut back excess off the joining wall, run a watered brush down the angle and come off the angle with your trowel. Job done. I use a twitch if needed sometimes. And the angle comes nice. But looking at the finished product afterwards, of doing all the opposites, you can't beat.

Working to an hard angle imho is for chancers, coursers or dayworkers why tf would anyone skim a room In 3 gauges (lack of confidence perhaps) learn to use an angle tool and get it all on in one.

good plasterers dont need a corner trowel, bring the wet angles in with your skimming trowel and 1 inch brush... yes, its easier skimming up to set finish, but if you have to bring 2 adjacent angles in its no big deal...
