Cheers Andy I'll get me a tube and give it goIf you use Sticks Like s**t Turbo then just 15 minutes. Stick beads up first and by the time you're set up ready to skim they'll be set. A single blob of adhesive in the back of the bead every 300-400mm will hold the bead as solidly as clout nails. The screw cap on the nozzle means that you don't end up wasting part tubes either. I've used it months after initially opening it. £7.39 a tube and a tube will loads and loads of beads.
And what do you do for a living ?can't believe fixing beads still gets debated, as if this trade hasn't been over-complicated enough in recent years.... tapit tape, no nails, silicone, super glue, foam, gripfill and now polymer mastic fukk me just tack 'em on with a bit of fkin multi or board ffs..... this trade gets more laughable every fkin day
call me ode fashioned pal but I just don't get it all this fkin fannying around just to stick a bead on@carl-the-plasterer
Its time wasted with finish setting on some walls with windows in ect messing about setting them in. Also nailing on cement render and others ways of fixing ain't good enough sometimes and clout nails seem to end up in tyres. I remember running the vacuum around and catching that bottom of a corner bead and it popped off. Seen some spreads go day before just to fit the beads as prefer them ready to go. I don't like the sticking with plaster myself so been looking for a better way and found one. Guess it's whatever works for you
why all the faffing around then just to save a few minutes if you're on domestics?@carl-the-plasterer
Im all domestic. Anything from old 1800s laths to 1950s internal cement backing. Hardly ever any plasterboard for me as that's easy with a few staples . Also beads over artex walls.
Anyway. I'm all for sharing ideas and don't mind getting shot at if some think it's naff.
Did you still use jute scrim?why all the faffing around then just to save a few minutes if you're on domestics?
I don't get it.
If you really want to save a bit of time mix up bit of skim first then get your beads cut ready or use a bit of older stuff like I used to and it'll set quicker it's not rocket science
You missed out caulk xcan't believe fixing beads still gets debated, as if this trade hasn't been over-complicated enough in recent years.... tapit tape, no nails, silicone, super glue, foam, gripfill and now polymer mastic fukk me just tack 'em on with a bit of fkin multi or board ffs..... this trade gets more laughable every fkin day
furry muff pal...but I still don't get it@carl-the-plasterer
The grab power and being able to adjust in and out ain't great with plaster. It is with polymer though.
I don't disagree with you, but I've just found it easier and less messy and one less clean up with small mix to use mastic. I think it's a bit quicker to just mastic around and stick on and you can fiddle for way more time especially when overhead. I do cut beads ready to fit and some I stick as I go if tight of room space.
It's just another way to do it. I'm that type of person that I'm always trying new things and new ways to do the job.
