" I've only used this to plaster one wall. It did the job just fine and it seems a strong tool. But reliability score just a guess really. "

good for one off diy
9 May 2014
By Rizo
, Croydon
" These are good for a one off diy project. I used them for a few days and I saw rust building on them already. I assume they are only good for 1 or 2 diy projects as reflected by the price. Did a good job never-the-less. "

Good basic trowel
28 Apr 2014
By YetiMan
, Bristol
" Bought this for a small rendering job and its done what it says on the tin. It's a basic level item so you don't want to push it too hard but that's the difference between £7 and £20+. One point to note is to clean it and dry it thoughily after use as it looks like it'll rust! "

Cheap but good

By Stef6421

" Bought this for doing a bit of first time plastering on a ceiling.
Was a bit wary about buying a cheap trowel but I can't fault it.
Will certainly use it again and would probably buy another if i need to

Fallen Apart

" I only do a little patching up, so trowel hasn't had very much use in the couple of months I've had it, but the handle is now only attached to the blade by one rivet, not very well made. "
