    O/T - Plaster

    Trying to get hold of some thistle multi finish plaster 25kg bags

    tryed the local B&Q but none in stock and appears to be like gold dust at the minute . B & Q do offer an alternative but not the same quality

    any plasterers /builders know anywhere in south wales I could get some or maybe some hidden in the back of your van i could lend

    It's like gold dust at the moment. The builders yards are getting three pallets a week, it's gone within an hour or two.Limited to ten bags in selco and five bags at the smaller establishments. Nobody knows when it's coming in, neither do the builders merchants until the last minute. It's causing chaos as nobody can finish their projects.

    B and Q have a range called 'Make Good' and travis Perkins have drafted in a load of Knauf plaster, absolutely robbing people for it, plenty down there. The only thing you can do is stake out the builders merchants or look at Wickes website, they will tell you availability in other branches, it could mean an early morning drive to gloucester or swindon. Alternatively, get your spread to use the stuff in B and Q, it works a bit differently and doesn't trowel up in the same way Multi does, there may be a bit of a compromise, although he (or she) is competent enough then they'll work it out for themselves by doing a test patch before they start.

    Still at it, although i've got a very cushy number now. Can't stop mate, still doing weekends etc, don't really need the money, just don't know what else to do with myself! My shoulder isn't great, damage is done, although when it's warmed up then it feels ok. Nerves in my wrist are dodgy as well, they come alive as and when!
