Plastic arch beads are only needed internal why would you use them elsewhere.
Plastic external are fine with sand and cement used them a few times now.

I use them all the time as well for rendering and yes they are cheaper don’t use plastic for skimming as I think personally they are hard to cover

I have used the plastic arch beads and they were a pain.

I also like polishing the metal ones up on corners.. the customers use to like that

Belmore tools, around 2 quid a piece so it's not cheap

I don't understand the scouring pad thing do you mean you scrub down the bead when done to make it shiney?

I always clean beads but must admit never bothered with the bottoms. I make sure flat no bumps

I used to use fine sandpaper but now use one of the green scouring pads.
Or just clean water and back edge of masonry brush? There shouldn't be anything on your beads after the last flick they look shiny and new doing that don't see why you would do that other then too look sexy when you work
