Depends how much your into your work mate.

I started off with a hawk and trowel (marshalltown) a couple of.buckets and some brushes.

Obviously back then ( 7 years ago) i was working for a plasterer labouring on him and doing little stuff, so used his mixing drill, spot and stand and anything else I needed.


The more I done the more I bought, my skimming trowel was passed down to me after it was used for 10 years of rendering, so propperly broken in. You can get used trowels on ebay sometimes too.

Tools come with experience mate, the best thing you can do at the moment is invest in a decent trowel and hawk and make sure you learn how too keep things clean.

Its only in the past 3 years I got my own refina mixing drill, van, steps, hop ups etc as it takes time and experience to be ready to do your own stuff. Anyone can take a job on with no major experience, but they wont ever get a good name for themselves.
 
Im sure you were a nob looking to get a start.

By sounds of it you still havent a start

Like a say was taking the piss ya silly **** and let's be fair when I started out with lads that thought me a knew after a couple ov week what tackle I needed and I think most folk would why ask sounds like a chancer to me probs like you
