But what do the girls look like ?:RpS_wink:theyre all too young to drink, officially. i think kidnap is the only way.
i met my cousins mrs yesterday. :RpS_drool::RpS_drool::RpS_drool:
why the **** i didnt think about doing something other than plastering i will never no. he plays golf everyday, its hot everyday, theres 25000 fannys on campus, theyre all fit as.no brainer really
he suggested i try out the local campus gym, which is apparently the **** 1 coz its acedemic students, not the athletes. it was just ridiculous. theyre all 18-20. its 10 times the size of the biggest gym iv ever seen. theyre all in little short tops and hotpants prancing around on treadmills and crosstrainers. and all tanned and......:RpS_drool:
well, this my first time on here in about a month and its good to see the same old debates are going.
i honestly cant believe that its still an argument over something that is so stupidly obvious
it doesnt make you produce double the work. weve worked that out now
you cant trowel up with it, i think were pretty much there on that
ruling off with, regardless of what anyone says is ridiculous, any decent spread knows that to pull a rule on a wall and for it to be properly flat it needs to be rigid, especially with heavy renders
it IS a tool worth considering for spray finish.
it will roughly lay down your first coat quickly if this is a method you choose to use
it will lay down you 2nd coat to an average standard.
that is it. thats all it does. it roughly flattens skim when its wet.
sell it as a tool for flattening mp finish and spray skim and as something that can make life easier to flatten a first coat. then everyone wuld look at it and go, its fairly priced compared to alternatives, it does what it says.
originally making ridiculous claims that seemed to target people learning or maybe people that were a bit dim isnt the right way to promote a tool and make friends
its good to see youve listened to people that have done it for years and do probably know more than yourself about the tool and its uses
it closes backing coats and render in lovley i was the only person using it for rendering the other week obviously after i had used a feather edge and about an hour later all the other plasterers were asking to use it.
i use mine all the time:RpS_thumbup:
does it not fewk the blade up over S&C??
No, it's not for finishing anyway. I like it over render.
Great minds think alike haha i had mine from early on aswell did have problems with the unit itself but scott soon sorted it out ill be using mine on render next week:RpS_thumbup:
Well for what it's worth I think it's a belting piece of kit, I use it all the time.
For instance the job I'm on needs a load of bonding out, I'll use it for that. The 80 year old walls are all over, they'll get a thick 1st coat of finish, speedskim, then the second coat will go on lovely.
What's not to like?
And BTW I'm not kissing any arse here. Just my balanced opinion.
Thanks for the post and your opinion.
As a Sponsor we don’t target anyone we promote the Speedskim to reflect its abilities in the most honest way we can. We have conceded that it’s not going to double your metreage and we have stated that on several occasions. In our opinion it takes courage for a company to do that.
We haven't at any point or in any post suggested anyone is dim - we purely made an honest error at the beginning of the project. That has been addressed for some time now and we thank TPF members for their support.
As far as the Speedskims overall abilities are concerned (whether flattening skim coat, ruling off backing plasters or sand & cement) anything we claim now is directly through customer feedback - not our opinion.
The Speedskim is not everyone's cup of tea and we completely acknowledge this. However it is extremely popular with a lot of Plasterers, colleges and also BG - who feel it takes a lot of the work of the process making the operation much easier and less of a strain overall. We do stand by the fact that Speedskim does give Plasterers the confidence to get more done depending on their routine etc
We do have 30 years’ experience in the industry so we are qualified to promote the tools.
as i said for spray skim i get it, skim i get it yet not for me, ruling off..... seriously. i know your going by what some people have said. but maybe try and get some normal people to review it. you cant "rule" a backing coat to an accurate flat surface with something that is designed to be flexible and bends. its just common sense. but if people want to use it for that then thats up to them, but it shows what plastering is coming to.
