Hello everyone, in this video I am sharing my experience of why I prefer a swimming pool trowels vs the standard rectangular trowel.
FYI, there is no such thing as a square trowel for stucco or plastering, they are rectangular.
I sometime times get misinterpreted for being incompetent for my preference for using these trowel in all my video’s but I prefer my handy dandy trusty swimming pool trowel to any other rectangular trowel every made.
I used to make these with my Chop Saw and a metal blade, then use my grinder to get the edges the way I preferred them, but now I simply buy them online.
Also, I’m past the age where I care what (they) think of my skills and choice of tools.
You DIY folks who watch would we do, I would recommend you start with a 12X5 trowel then work your way up to a larger trowel especially if you are going to be a plasterer, not the trowel that I use in all my videos.
I thought of using my shoe or a frying pan, but that would be showing off. anyway it’s not the trowel it’s the man.
BTW, you can purchase both of these trowel’s in Oakland at Larm’s building material located on high street by the freeway, tell Nick the owner, Kirk sent you.
