    top coat of freeman...

    you can even put the internal tapes up with easi fill and flush with a 3.5 corner head,
    then top with a 3" when its set... perfect!

    might add a few min to your day depending on house size but for a standard 3 bed or small 4 bed its not going to add any more than a hour onto your day... half that if you move your arse!
    The usual stuff I do is no 2/4 bed plot!! F*ck I would like to c 1 again!
    Its all these crazy houses with vaulted chit and the rest! I am never on a site but some days I wish I was!
    Architects have lost the plot on some o the chit I c!! Its ok to draw the f*cking house on a plan but do they know that some poor c*nt like us has to do the job??????

    yea fair enough, as long as they pay its easy given the access to materials we have these days.. all those fancy beads you can get for the shit vaulted bits all you have to do is stick them on and wipe over the edge.. like you say the freeman is so easy and low shrink its simple as.

    Interesting to see the different methods. Not saying 2 coats don't work just have seen it done particularly well.

    maybe we're old school, but I'm only 30. Flat tape by trowel, 10 box and 12 box. Internals with boozka and final with 3", generally 3 coat reveals. Just can't see how you can tape a plot in a day.

    I run a gang of 4 and generally do 15-20 plots a month so not slow.

    The freemans is a god send.

    fair enough, i used to do 20 plots a month on my own lol... i guess the other guys could of cleaned my tools and kept moral up with a song or two.

    its simple to tape plots in a day, just do what i wrote up the thread a bit, your still 3 coating.. if i had a ok lad, i could 3 coat site 4 beds in a day now and i am well unfit.

    you're only filling out a tapered edge and covering some paper..

    its different on different makes of board (and even the same brand has differnces between board types.. pink blue green etc) though all my work is BG these days. the knaff board used the be the shallowest but it was wider, its was perfect imo. all the board is shit these days.

    Coated up angle and nails plus but joints yesterday with freeman ( bit naughty doing the butt's) going back tomorrow lunch time to crack out the joints. Will be interesting to see what it looks like compared to doing with filler.

    Might coat up my sat plots with freeman if it's ok. Hey a sat treat internal then coat up to top off on the Monday. I have tested it on the joints in showers etc and seems to shrink less than standard filler! No cracking so far...

    Maybe be crack heaven though timber frames...

    Well it's a total joy to top on! The coating up did not shrink back, the compound only recessing into air gaps in butt joint nails and some areas on bead. This in not material shrinkage though, in terms of that there really is non to speak of.

    Great stuff! I wish I could paper tape the joints and just use freeman for everything! It makes the job so easy it's ridiculous... Where was this stuff 15 years ago when I used to bash out 5 units a week... God know what I could of got though with the help of freeman.

    its no fatigue in application and dramatically less when rubbing down.

    oh and even on paper flex tape loaded heavy in places with a trowel .. No air holes! It's light but dense! It's not full of air like other lightweight compounds. Naming no names lol

    I used it ages ago, back at the start but every time I phone for some more I got the run around! So went back to arrow... Then tried again... Run around....then again months later... Run around.... But now two pallets in a row with no run around.

    still can't work out how belmore works lol you phone up and no one wants to take your order... Thankfully I managed to get past that very strange situation this time. Weird!
