I've only used one for the past few years , still prefer doing opposites but if it's bang it on rate I give up
I meant the 3 sided one shown in the book, I do always use a corner trowel but we used to make our own with a slightly larger radius

You shake a man's hand, little while later you go for a wee....

Always called it a hand board. Solely down to my beginning that's what everyone else called it. Well more than it was called a hawk. I always assumed the name hawk came because you hold it the same way you would use your arm for a perch when calling your hawk in falconry. Now I cant get Billy Casper and Kes out my head

If it looks like a hawk, sells like a hawk then it must be a hawk.

He's setting out a Plasterers oval and trips over the gothic arch and lands on the springing line.
Or was it was suicided after he seen the NVQ qualifications.
Sad but true, that why there is no sixth addition.

Yes, you can manage without a small tool, until you need it.
A useful tool, if you can find it.
Always at the bottom of the water bucket. Or is it?
