Same here.cheers john,, think i will give it a little longer before i make my mind up,,,have tried a couple of different trowels in the past but its seems the marshalltowns are hard to beat and we allways seem to go back to them
As above. I use mine same as scottie . Ss first. Then refina then plastic to finish.
Only when I have it with me
usually it's just the ss then plastic to finish
was just trying to answer the lads question as I find the Refina blade a little thin and flimsy
Give the Kraft Elite Trowels a go
i have now got a 16 inch one,, yes they are really good :RpS_thumbsup:Just ordered an 18" one an waiting to get it but heard they're really good
i have now got a 16 inch one,, yes they are really good :RpS_thumbsup:
a bit lighter but a lot more flexible,, trowel up really nice,, only good for settingwhat are they like in weight compared to the marshalltown ?
hi , never tried a speed skim,, i might try one soongunna take some getting used to i think. its easier to leave ribbed marks in plaster if not carefull. but its easier on the joints and arms, but for now . those speed skims are ok tho u tried them yet????
I have been using the s*p*r*lex trowels for about 1 year now and find its alot easier to use, The only thing with them they lose their shape aftter abut 4/5 months of use.. Does anyone know of similar trowels that last longer?
I changed the handle for a bass wood m/town handle off an old trowel, the shank is a different shape so had to pare it down a little with a small chisel to make it fit.
then stuck a Washer on before putting the old nut back on.
