In the 1990s, DeWalt brought their brand new range of portable tools onto the market, inspired by the success of bigger brands like Black & Decker, and in conjunction with the German company, ELU, which specialises in technology for woodwork. It was very well received and soon they became renowned for ingenuity of tool design and being well ahead of the field.

The impact and improvements on time, money and effort is a radical upgrade in working practice and economic savings for drywalling professionals.

But it’s not just DeWalt power tools that are going to give you professional results.

Even a basic DeWalt putty knife or taping knife has the same design precision and attention to detail. You can invest in a range of DeWalt drywall hand tools or sets for drywall taping and finishing tools, which means you’ll have everything you need to offer a professional service time and again.

The Evolution Of The Wall

Plasterer adding second coat

A wall is an everyday thing that we don’t normally think twice about when we see it, whether it’s an interior or exterior wall in a shopping centre or in a prestigious gallery. But just imagine how varied and versatile its uses have been over the (literally!) thousands of years it’s been used in civilisations right across the world.

From mud-made walls to the fine art that dryliners, fixers jointers and plasterers now carry out. It’s also easy to forget that plaster and jointing compound in its basic form is a combination of things like sand, rock, cement, lime, and water.

Plaster Has Revolutionised Wall Building

The main point of building a wall right from its earliest days, was to bring windproof, waterproof protection to dwellings so that everyday people could stay safe and dry, whatever the weather. And then of course, over the years building internal walls and ceilings became an art. We’ve seen plaster and jointing compound being used for aesthetic effect to create a look of richness and beauty in the extravagant homes and prestigious buildings such as museums, theatres and palaces.

All those aspects of making a wall remain part of the use and purpose of the material, but time has led to sizeable industry improvements in technology and skill, in keeping with the needs of contemporary life.

So, plaster has been made from all kinds of things over its long history; some of which are cheap and readily available, and others that were more expensive and refined. But let’s concentrate for now on the most popular modern day forms of building a wall… drylining.

These days, gypsum (also known as calcium sulfate dihydrate) has become the main component of drywall compound. It has a crystalline structure that makes it perfect for the job. No fibrous binding material is needed because when gypsum get wet, they bind automatically and naturally. We all love a smooth mix!

Check Out Our Range Of Plastering Materials & Tools

For ease of use, why not try 4T plaster compound that’s ready to use straight out of the box and doesn’t necessarily even need mixing. Something like Wondertex Prem, which is great for filling and finishing. To save even more effort and energy, how about getting a cordless mixer that will do the hard work for you? And you could invest in a DeWalt mixing paddle, which will even save you for bending down – excellent news for your back!

We have all the drywall and plastering supplies you need for any project. Just have a look through our entire range to find the materials and equipment you need for the finish you’re after.

Strong As An Ox – Tools That You Can Depend On

Ox Tools

What’s the point of a tool unless it can stand up to some serious hard work? That’s one of the beliefs we hold here at Gypsumtools, which is why we recommend OX tools – a range praised in construction circles for their strength, durability and price point.

Not only that, they offer outstanding safety features like an ergonomic handle design that ensures you get a decent grip when you’re working. And if that wasn’t enough, their striking cyan blue signature colour is immediately recognisable across the industry for top notch tooling. OX tools are the business.

Take, for example, plastering and finishing. You’ll want a finishing tool with an ultra-fine blade that will work well with any gypsum-based plaster. OX gives you just that. If you’re working with plaster, the OX Trade Stainless Steel Plasterers Trowel is made using a 0.3mm ultra-flexible blade which is perfect for getting the best finish with the least effort.

You should definitely keep an OX Pro Retractable Folding Knife somewhere in your tool kit. It’ll come in handy time and again. The blades are sharp but safe to change, and the grip is comfortable and very easy on the hand. And while we’re talking about ease, the OX Stubby Adjustable Wrench Jaw is designed with an extra short handle to make easy work of the trickiest to access areas you’ll ever encounter.

Or how about the OX Aluminium Hawk? It’s made from tempered aluminium which makes it a premium product and comes complete with a soft grip rubber handle for additional comfort. It not only looks sleek and polished, it’s going to last you a very long time.

Other OX hand tools include the Industrial Quality Pro Wire Snips that feature stainless steel serrated edged blades for increased cutting capacity, the Speedskim Flex Finishing Rule that’s specifically designed to enhance the quality of your finish, and the Semi Flexible Plastering Rule for use on ceilings, walls and floors.

How have OX managed to reach such high standards at such affordable prices?

Why Is Plastering Tape So Important?

Drywall Taping

There’s one thing you should never forget that when you’re plastering a wall – and that’s preparation. Preparation is everything.

A flawed surface underneath your handiwork is going to be much harder for you to cover. Get it right, or you won’t be able to guarantee to get that smooth professional finish you’re after.

Skip this step and you’ll spend far too long working to hide the dodgy joins that haven’t been properly prepared in the surface below. That’s why, whether you’re plastering a tiny patch of wall in the kitchen or a major commercial property, plastering tapes are going to be your all-round best friend.

Types Of Plastering Tape

Plastering tape comes in a few different types, making it suitable for the whole range of walls and surfaces you could ever find yourself drywalling. Basic drywall tape is usually made of paper, which means it’s easy to tear, flexible to use, and lightweight to apply.

When you’ve applied your jointing compound to fill the gap between plasterboard panels, a strip of drywall tape over the top ensures that the join doesn’t become visible again when the wall has dried. Perfect.

Scrim tape is very popular for beginners working with plasterboard, and it’s also a good all round tape. It has the added benefit that you don’t need to use jointing compound with it, so it’s less fiddly. Made of fibreglass, the construction is like an interwoven mesh of threads, which gives it the flexibility and strength you need, and it won’t bubble up or move around like some other tapes.

Lastly, we’d also highlight Wondertex metal angle tape which a superior style of tape that is reinforced with galvanised metal. This steel reinforcement gives the tape incredible rigidity and strength, making it perfect for finishing internal and external drywall corners.

With a specially-designed fold down its middle, this style of tape can be applied quickly and easily with the assurance each corner will be straight and sharp.

Find The Perfect Tape For The Job

When you’ve chosen the type of tape you need for this job, make sure you get the right width. Normally 1 to 2 inches is fine, but if you’re working on a bigger area, you can get much wider tapes. Ultimately you just want to keep the joins as tidy as you can, so speak to us for more guidance here if you need it.

You’ll learn by experience how to get the preparation right the first time, with just the right drywall and plastering tapes.

Experienced dryliners have their preferences, and some stick with tried and tested tapes they’ve used for years. Others experiment with new tapes as and when they come on the market. The important thing is to finish the join as if it was going to be on display – then the plastering on top will be a breeze!

Still need some guidance? Get in touch and we’ll be happy to help!

Automated Tools Are Now Must-Haves – Here’s Why!

taping tools

Did you know, the very first drywalling taping tools came onto the market back in the 1930s? That’s nearly 90 years ago.

But the truth is, even in 2019, many contractors are still working as if they’re back in that era. and it’s understandable.

Is It Time To Upgrade?

If you normally do your drywalling by hand in the time-tested way most professionals learned their trade as apprentices, you might not have given the new automatic taping tools a second thought. After all, you don’t want to find yourself doing a job that’s below par. You’ve spent years honing your craft and taking pride in your work.

Automatic taping tools are designed by professionals who know the high quality of manual work you produce – they are made to perfect drywalling fixing and finishing results at a fraction of the speed it would normally take you.

The Top 10 Plastering Tools You’ll Need To Get The Job Done

Plasters tool kit

When it comes to a specialist trade skill like plastering, it’s no secret that having the right tools can make a world of difference.

Not only do the best plastering tools save time on the job, they also deliver a better end result and can give your project that extra touch of quality. From trowels and snips to drills and saws, we’re going to run through what the team here at Gypsumtools believe to be the top 10 must-have plastering tools for any industry professional:

1. Finishing Trowel

In a similar way to the pointing trowel, the finishing trowel is another crucial tool in any plasterer’s kit. It utilises a wider, flatter blade to smooth out the plaster more effectively and provide that exceptionally smooth finish to all your surfaces. This is a tool you’ll be using a lot so it makes sense to invest in a high quality tool like the RST SS Finishing trowel.

2. Window Trowel

When you can’t use your other larger trowels around windows, most plasterers will reach for their window trowel. As its name suggests, this tool is specifically designed for use around windows thanks to its smaller blade face which gives you better manoeuvrability across the wall in tighter spaces. An important tool if you work on a lot of residential projects.

3. Inside and Outside Corner Trowels

Yet another crucial tool in the professional plasterer’s kit – the corner trowel. Instead of tackling the complexities of finishing your corners with a more traditional trowel, corner trowels allow you to smooth out your plaster with accuracy and simplicity. Save time on site by reaching for your inside and outside corner trowels instead of trying to get by with a traditional flat blade.

4. Mortar Stand

This is one you might consider obvious, but again it’s another simple accessory that can make life on site that little bit easier. A mortar stand is a small foldable table that you can use to hold your plastering material or grout, giving you that ease of access whilst working. Don’t overlook the simple tools as they can make a big difference!

5. Bucket Trowel

One of the key items in any plasterer’s arsenal is the trusty bucket trowel. This tool is commonly used to scoop plaster up out of your mixing bucket and onto your plastering hawk. Because of the weight involved when transferring the plaster, you’ll need a strong and robust bucket trowel as part of your kit. This really is a must-have tool.

6. Mixing Bucket

Similar to the mortar stand, a bucket will have multiple uses when working on a project. In most cases, you’ll want a decent size bucket – at least 15 litres should be sufficient depending on your specific requirements. Before you start any plastering job, you’ll need to keep your bucket clean and dry prior to mixing any plastering materials.

7. Hawk

If you don’t already have a plastering hawk, you’re not doing it right! The number one must-have tool for any professional plasterer, the hawk is a portable surface where you can hold your plaster material when on the move. It allows you to apply your plaster quickly and easily across both walls and ceilings. There are a wide range of plastering hawks available varying in sizes but you’ll want a clean surface with rounded edges just like this Nela option.

8. Snips

Having a reliable pair of snips is always important in modern plastering, primarily because you’ll likely need to trim and cut your beading. Make sure the snips you choose have the ability to cut both popular types of beading metal – cold steel and stainless steel. Also, having longer handles on your snips can give you better leverage and make the task of trimming up beading much easier. All plasterers should have a durable set of snips as part of their kit.

9. Plasterers Float

When you’ve added the final layer of plaster to your wall or ceiling, you’ll need to give it one final pass over with a plasterers float to give it that all-important smooth, high quality finish. This is another very important tool that should be carried by all plasterers as without it, you won’t be able to smooth down the top layer of plaster and you could see your surface end up uneven.

10. Scarifier

The final tool on our list is the scarifier – a large metal comb that allows you to scratch away at the render before applying your second coat. The scarifier is an important tool for any plasterer as it gives you the ability to comb lines directly into the render which will create a stronger bond when the next layer is applied. If you want a high quality finish on your walls and ceilings, we’d definitely recommend investing in one of these.

So there you have it! Add this list of plastering tools into your kit and you’ll be ready for any challenge the job can throw at you.

Full Circle Air Radius 360 Dust-free Sanding System

Full Circle Air Radius 360 Dust-free Sanding System

If you’re looking for a new set of tools that perform brilliantly when it comes to dust-free sanding, then read on because we think you’re going to like this post!

We are of course talking about the Full Circle Radius 360 Air Sanding System – the tool that has revolutionised the way thousands of professionals sand and smooth their walls, ceilings, corners and details.

With over half a million units already sold, the Radius 360 Air has become the must-have tool on sites across the world and is continuing to grow in popularity. It’s the number one choice among drywalling professionals thanks to its perfect blend of dust-free drywall sanding and easy-to-use precision when it comes to dealing with detailed areas.Full Circle Air Radius 360 Dust-free Sanding System One of the biggest reasons to use this sanding system over other products is its fantastic 98% dust-free operation. Dust is one of the biggest issues when drywalling for a number of reasons, most notably the health risks that can arise if it’s inhaled. The Radius 360 Air provides near-perfect dust removal whilst maintaining the fast and effortless movement that high quality professional sanding needs.

Having taken a big step forward from the original Full Circle Radius 360 design, this latest sanding system meets the needs for almost all commercial and industrial projects that demand effective dust extraction.

The swivel within the tool that attaches to the handle has been tweaked to lower the centre of gravity and redirect dust directly through the handle itself. This makes the system incredibly lightweight and simple to use compared to more standard drywall sanders that are heavy and awkward to handle. The lighter, more nimble design of this tool also means less pressure is needed on the sanding head to achieve the perfect finish, so it’s a system that will save you both time and effort.

This amazing Radius 360 Air Package also comes with two separate sanding solutions – the circular Radius 360 Air and the rectangular Flex Air. Having both these in your arsenal means you’ll be perfectly placed to tackle almost any sanding challenge while keeping the site free from dust and debris. Changing the sanding heads is easy too – simply twist the cam lock, swap the heads over and lock into place once again.

Like the majority of orbital power sanders available on the market, the Radius 360 Air comes with a round head to distribute pressure evenly across the surface and prevent the tool head from flipping.

As part of this set, you’ll also receive the Full Circle Flex Air which is perfect for inside corners and detailed areas thanks to its rectangular abrasive pad. This kind of tool was previously very challenging to use as there would often be a rigid hose attached to the base at a fixed position – this prevented fluid movement across the surface and would even cause the hose to kink if used incorrectly.

The hand swivel built into the Flex Air sanding system offers the full 360 degrees of movement without the threat of the hose kinking during use. This brilliant feature means you’ll be able to make light work of any surface at almost any angle and enjoy that perfectly smooth finish you’re looking for.

More traditional dustless sanders used to cover the attached handle with a rubber boot which made manipulating the sanding system clumsy and awkward. This is what sets the Radius 260 Air apart – its unique ball-and-socket mechanism gives you the complete range of motion that isn’t compromised by a rubber boot or protective cavity. Full Circle Air Radius 360 Dust-free Sanding System Furthermore, the independent movement of the shroud from the tool base provides the ability to deliver almost perfect dust-free sanding and guarantees you’ll enjoy a fantastic scratch-free finish every time; regardless of whether you’re using the tool on walls, ceilings or corners.

So why should you consider the Full Circle Radius 360 Air Sanding System?

The variety of unique features built into this particular system sets it apart from the competition, and you’ll benefit from near flawless dust-free sanding time and time again. The complete and unrivalled range of motion these tools provide give them the edge on most competitor products – you won’t find these features in any other dustless sanding tool on the market today.

If you still need more convincing, take a look at the system in action here.

Why a Drywall Sander Can Save you Time and Money

Drywall sander

Drywall sander

Traditionally, drywall sanding was a laborious and lengthy task, not to mention being a drain on your resources because of the time needed to clear up the mess afterwards. Thankfully, times have moved on and more and more plastering professionals are discovering why a drywall sander can save you time and money.

Here, we’re talking less than half the effort needed for traditional sanding methods as it can be guided easily over a wall or ceiling. With a long extension, using a drywall sander also means less stretching to get to those hard to reach areas and no need to wobble about on stilts or ladders either.

The dust free sanding systems in drywall sanders include a vacuum hose to suck away the mess and harmful debris as you work, creating a cleaner, safer and more breathable working environment, with not as much clearing up to do afterwards.

The sander will also give you a better chance to prepare wall and ceiling seams, allowing you a high quality finish in those traditionally awkward places, again with less effort involved. They are pretty lightweight and ergonomically designed too to ensure less muscle fatigue and stress when working high up.

Drywall sanders can come with varying sizes of disc to cover a variety of different areas, as well as variable speed settings and extensions. The ease of use and added maneuverability will also save masses of time, especially on larger sanding projects. So, if you’re wondering why a drywall sander can save you time and money, there are some great reasons right here.

We stock drywall sanders

Taking a trip to a plastering and drylining superstore specialist and investing in a good drywall sander is always a good move, especially if you’ve got a project on and are looking to save time and money, but still want to achieve excellent results.

Gypsumtools now stocking SuperPROF products

SuperPROF Tools

SuperPROF Tools

We’re always on the lookout for the best plastering and drylining products that this planet has to offer, that’s why we’re pleased to announce the latest additions to our extensive range.

If you take a look online, you’ll discover that Gypsumtools is now stocking the hugely popular SuperPROF products!

These feature a variety of coating knives, wall scrapers and the excellent Comfort Profile which have all made their way over the North Sea from the Netherlands and we’re really pleased to say that they found their way to us.

About SuperPROF

SuperPROF products have been making life that little bit easier for professional plasterers and DIY enthusiasts for a fair few years now.

Their high quality tools are made on an advanced,fully automatic production line, in Velddriel in the Netherlands and are inspected individually to ensure that the blades are straight and properly secured to the aluminium profile.

The company procures large rolls of steel, blue spring steel and stainless steel which is cut to size in a machine. The steel sheet is then forwarded to the assembly machine where the aluminium profile and blade are pressed together.

The half-finished product is placed in a punch press where holes are punched in the aluminium profile for the handle which is then riveted on to it. Wood coated knives and wall scrapers with wooden profiles have always been assembled by hand.

Take a look at the SuperPROF Comfort Profile for a great example of some of the SuperPROF magic. This is ideal for smooth and speedy finishing on large surfaces, ensuring next to no loss of plaster and pretty much no need to worry about smoothing it down afterwards.

The ergonomic profile of the Comfort Profile also ensures a good grip and blades are available in three thicknesses and various lengths.
