occasionally yeah. depends on the job really
right. although this has been said a few times i dont think im getting it lol. i found them fine for a last polish, although didnt really see the point as a steel does similar. other then that, i found they dont trowel the gear as flat as a steel. oven tho it doesnt leave hollows it kinda waves over small lumps etc which show when painted. i did a room a while back that i painted after and it looked bang on when skimmed but had a few shadows when painted. that was using it from as soon as i had 2nd coated. and as i cant see the point on usuing it just for a final trowel, that only leaves once its been layed down. so at that point, what is the point in them? lol
lol maybe you need to lay the coats on neater.....lol :RpS_scared:
how dare you!!!
i had a go today strangly enough, and not out of choice. my wooden handle on my skimmer was a little bit loose and kept squeeking and was doing my head in. gave it a little tighten in the middle of a hit and sheared the bolt. so had to no more nails the handle back on and got out the plastic lol. my old skimmer is rusted to s**t and i didnt have time to clean it up. and i still tought afterwards that the plastic doesnt leave it as flat as a steel. i will have another go, but im struggling to be convinced
