    hiya mate machines are going ok now was getting slightly stressed with them as I could get it neater hand jointing but think have it sussed now it was more about the first 2 coats than the last, as for the banjo gave it twenty minutes on friday but they wanted to close the site sharpish so I reverted to my normal method to make sure I got the house done before I got kicked out, I can see it working well but cutting the tape and cutting it in the right place is the hardest bit to master.

    As for the cement I would go with Tony on the wondertex heard this week that interline was selling it for 9.90 I assume thats a pallet price though.

    Why not use readymix? Its nit that much more expensive& saves alot if time mixing up& the end of a shift& sands like night& day compared to powder, gtec ready mix is absolutely brilliant to work with& sands in half the time of bg.

    Another vote for gtec ready mix,great to work with and even better to sand.

    Dmc i wouldn't go back to powder if i could help it, gtec rmix is far better to work with sands better and fries alot quicker to, it may cost a wee bit more nut the time you save on production makes it more than worthwhile, i take it you prefer this aswell?

    I use the Gtec bag stuff,sands fine as long as not left for more than a couple of days in baking heat.The best stuff for sanding i have found was the arrow bag cement from walls and ceilings.You could rub an edge off with your hand when dry.
