Pagey there's no need to spray skimming on domestic internals..it just dsnt make sense at all..
Mate I don't get the skimming domestic part but what about a new build extension fully boarded ect? Can't the machine also throw on a bit of external as well? I know on a few rendering jobs I've had I would of loved a machine because it was a fair bit between two blokes and I'm like you I can't have a young lad because none can hack it a machine does appeal to me but I'm not in that market to even think about one but you can't knock a bloke who has gone all in and gonna try make it work,I've done jobs for Pete and we speak on phone and even though we met on here I'm telling you he a top bloke and if he wants to make it work he will he ain't as stupid as some think lol

If anyone can make it work it'll be Vince, he's about the only one that can make unifinish work so he's capable of anything.

Only problem with that mate is you wouldn't be able to spray skim on s+c,spray skim it's for boards. But I understand where you are coming from.
I cannot knock anyone for trying, I am a m2 muncher and it will not work, time you set a machine up me and my lads would have a skim on, then there's the window protection etc, another gauge on, extra cleaning. It gives me headache thing about it lol.

I agree pal I've said previously it looks boring and tedious spraying a finish plaster

Ive only ever seen 3/4 aswell...thats half of reason cant be arsed getting into market do very well on internals so just don't see how I could earn more doing external..ye mite be abit more satisfying and better works etc but id rather earn more coin..rates that get banded about down our way for coloured tender are laughable..most been offered was £13m2 labour only and sum1 offered £10..laughed and said no thanks

I suppose it's like skimming rates
There's good and bad rates about
I've just picked up a site with mono and the rate is decent
Going direct to the builder will get you a half decent rate but then there's waiting minimum 30 for payment

Couple of plus points and bad points in my mad head at the minute,bads points as machine is new to me is setting up and cleaning it down hopefully get quicker and easier with time ,not got a clue yet how much area to tackle in one hit.
Good points handballed a few of the thistle spray bags to get a feel for the gear and it's like creamy smooth butter also says it's okay for going over different surfaces @Leeroy not just board's..tbh it pisses over multifinish and my beloved unifinish for how it trowels up even not sprayed.
Hoping to spray within a week after machine has service.

Setup each day 10 mins, clean out 10 mins.

You will learn time saving tricks as u go. Clean using the r/s to push water through save f**k**g about with tap and u can clean the hopper as well.

If the flow of the plaster stops and starts like it has air in it then it because u are using the powercoat shaft. ( silver no up right arm) switch to the ritmo m render and it's sweet

Use the water pump. It can go direct on to the tap as well as a water butt.

If keep f**k**g it up just use it as a conveying machine. Even my dad can do that.


Water flow 100 speed 10

You can leave the build up in the chamber just spray out any wet stuff. This lets you not have to disassemble the mixing zone each hit. Just do it each day after final hit.
