    Ah in gorilla kitchy yeah, know exactly what you mean, because your not sinkin the full paddle in you can't get the water to go through it properly.
    Get a proper bucket, sounds so simple & silly but I won't mix up in any other than the ones I have now, ever!!

    yeah keeping it slow and the reason is on my own its easier to not clean the bucket and i can just knock the old shite out of my gorilla the next day and give it a wipe with a scouring pad

    Cleaning a bucket takes 30 seconds (if that) when it's soft. It's quicker than banging it out, never mind a scouring pad.
    That's another thing, gorilla are a Cnut to wash out, you can't just throw some water in and spin the whisk in it, in the taller buckets you can, bucket and whisk clean in 10 secs.

    Must be bored tonight!!

    Can't get on with gorilla tubs.
    I've got a 200mm paddle and the s**t goes EVERYWHERE.
    Tall buckets no probs. Straight in. Boosh. Just churns it round in seconds. No fannying about moving a little whisk round and round...

    Use flexi tubs if I'm not using my board and stand. Easier to knock the plaster out when I forget to clean it out straight after putting on, or if I get caught by the set going off, can just leave it and knock it out later.

    Never used the flexi tubs but after seeing how common they are I might have to give it a try.

    I use a old plastic bucket that used to hold chlorine for a pool store. It holds 12.2 gal. Mixes fast and cleans up easy but I don't let my plaster stay in it long.
