when using sand and cement, if were doing the plinths weve always just beaded the whole lot and floated the plinths at the same time as the wall.

a guy the other day i was speaking to was adamant that he would scratch and float the plinths first, then cut a line above them and sit the bell bead on it. reckons its a lot easier and saves having your head on the floor floating a plinth.

anyone do this?

man of few words. do you scratch the whole lot and leave a gap for the bead or just plinths with the angles beaded?

Scratch the lot float the plinths a little higher than you think the beads going to go then ping a line and scratch just above it, make sure you do the areas youd bead first like thresholds so you know where to scratch

i dont see it as easier , more time comsuming by sounds of it, best to get all the prep and beading done...then scratch the lot...then top out the lot....

or your having to go back and scratch and top out again....
