    Which machine is best for me

    You can use on site single, half and triple powered machines, as long you use gene. You need to look on the practical side. I’ll avoid 110 at any cost.Best will be switchable.

    Pozzolan GGBS

    The s**t you fcked up your lime with ! As I said , you need alumina and silica for hydraulic set, not iron and other s**t that left in the ash .

    deisil per month

    Where is that? Diesel is more expensive as you travel more miles than petrol. It’s a balance thing.

    Pozzolan GGBS

    And yes , you f**k*d up the lime.The only benefit using ground granulated blast furnice slag is the low reaction with salts.

    Pozzolan GGBS

    The two words do not belong together technically.GGBS is not pozzolan ,it’s hydraulic material with cementitious content . Pozzolan contains silica and alumina .

    Lime novices in need of help!

    As I said before lime is all about prep , care and after care, but that comes with knowledge and experience. It’s not something you can rush nor cut corners, hence not popular among the skimmers or ordinary spreads. The wall in question will need3-4 returns to finish and can’t be expected to be...

    To put it short- you have plastered over yeast. That’s the closest comparison I can do. And to advise someone who hasn’t used lime before to get his hands on quick lime is beyond me. Most likely is still expanding

    Lime novices in need of help!

    There are only few more n the whole country who use hot lime for plastering and I can assure you the guy who did the job is not one of them. Hot lime has its benefits and negatives, but working around them you can achieve plaster with great results. Not in your case I am afraid. You have been...

    Oh dear! The f**k up Is biger than I thought. In the next few months you’ll see the voodoo side of the lime . You may leave them corners for now.Feel sorry for you now.

    Lime novices in need of help!

    Not interested which manufacturer you have used. That ratio is for the finishing coat and hope you have used something different for the other 3-4 coats.That crack on your corner in picture 1 is a sign you have to be worried, hence I said failure before. You can remove say 7-10mm of the lime...

    Reading your post again...... I don’t get it? You hired a plasterer for 3k, who has been advised by the company who sold you limelight for the job ?

    Lime novices in need of help!

    I don’t think Norman had you in mind tbh. Lime is dying art although every one is shouting about in the past 10 years and cos not every one can do it , the majority on the chain,manufacturers including, are taking the piss. Lime is not just chucking gear on the wall, it’s knowledge and...

    Lime novices in need of help!

    you need to build your corners again and take them to the wall trying to blend in as much as possible and use carborundum stone to sand /blend in the new line you’ll have , not the corners . Corners should be floated and troweled to give them strength.Paint or wash will do the rest
