    Would you rather ?

    Would you rather do an easy job for a normal wage or a really s**t job the kind that keep you up at night for double the money ? Just I’ve been putting silly prices in for jobs I don’t want and still get them.

    Mt permaflex

    I’ve never laid out on with a super flex . But when my last mt started to lose shape after years of use I bought a nela medi flex . Don’t get me wrong it’s a good trowel but not that good for putting on with . That mt i used today was far better and flatter even straight out of box .
