Pissed off now. Board or re-skim it’s been a f**k**g nightmare! Drying all over the place, grainy and gritty as f**k. Absolute ballache to finish it. Got 4 walls on and sweating now. It’s like dry and wet at the same time cannot even explain it.

Anyone else!?

Might switch to board finish as they constantly f**k about with multi

I’m going to try board finish. Only ever used it when customer supplied.

Today was an absolute nightmare. Sorted it but was much more work than normal having to trowel f**k out of it with lots of water, everything I’m against.

Was exact the same on board (ceiling ) too

It’s just bags of dust lol, I can honestly say in the last 10 years I’ve had 2 bags with rocks in, the rest have been fine, I’m sure some think it should flatten itself and every background should react the same.

Been using it on reskims for a couple of weeks now, closes in lovely. 2nd pass seems to finish better. Nicer to handle as well I think, feels creamier

Definitely trying that as multi is absolutely s**t. Was like sand and cement

Get through some more bags and you will see what i mean.

I know before it even touches the wall
It’s going to be trouble. Mixes differently, fluffy and less water than normal.

I’ve had it a few times now. I have gear at another job and it’s absolutely fine. But this last pallet is all the same.

A few years ago I would have laughed at these muppets who sponge float, now I keep one in my bucket just in case I need it. Been watching the rwf videos which I’m strangely enjoying, the soundtracks are amazing and he is keen as mustard.

Not really noticed multi being that bad meself but...

Problem is, after years of making bags thinner and thinner, some t**t at BG has now decided to start glueing the bags together to stop them slipping off pallet. Fine for plastic mastercrete bags, not so clever for paper plaster bags.

Everyfrikin bag has a tear down the middle now WTF?

I mean...WTF?

Ahh WTF I'm off to bed.

wtf:(
