It's nice to practice traditional techniques but floating is old hat these days, certainly for residential.
 
Hmmm float has been old hat for a long time but still a good skill to learn and practice

Without doubt, you look like a plonker if you can't do it. its been nearly two years since I've done any amount of floating I done some work in a leisure centre in saltash and also Exeter hospital. Guess there is more demand in the commercial sector.

Dot and dab is nearly unheard of in my neck of the woods. All float and set work. Nothing like lashing a few tubs on to sort the hangover out

Good point, well made. It's hard graft.

Out of curiosity what size feather edge do most people use, I was always encouraged to use the biggest I could like a 2.4 but I prefer a 2metre one now. Feels a bit less clumsy than swinging a great big fecker about.
