Anything can happen yet there plastic you couldn't trowel up with a blunt steel spat like oasis says he can, serious if you one coat a large spat to flatten before you sponge is mint and when I 2 coat and it's a decent size set I'll flatten, if you haven't used one you would be very surprised at how flat a 4 foot spat will leave a wall

I owned a midget trowel for a few years and got some skim coming up so ordered a plazi blade to try, anyway my original REFINA midget trowel did not fit in the sleeve

when i rang to question they told me i need the 70mm wide refina trowel, i told them my trowel was 80mm and it is refina, they told me the trowels were new and have always been 70mm

I suggested that the trowels had been refashioned to 70mm on the release of the plazi so we all have to buy new midget trowels aswel as the blade. so having found this out i had to order another refina midget (70mm) just to go in the plazi, swizz swizz swizz and yes I did have to pay the extortionate £6.odd just to get it even after spending over a £100 the week before when i ordered the plazi. the delivery charges of refina are the most expensive i have ever known - I can get gear sent from germany for the same price and better quality gear too.

I dip into refina now and agaain but would shop there more if they werent such a set of rip off merchnts and unhelpful to deal with. back to germany for the mean time.
