kirk’s recommended tools, https://www.stuccoplastering.com/tools
Howdy, ambitious subscribers and fellow plasterers, on our Amazon site above, I took the liberty of researching the tools we use to save you a bit of time and cash.
We don’t need the most expensive tools just the best built and proper tools at the absolute lowest price available, plus on this site, you can still buy your everyday supplies also.
An example, on our Amazon site, click on the link on gloves we use, they sell for six bucks each, next to it is a link that sells the same gloves by the dozen, for 23 dollars that’s two bucks each. You can work in the swamps, or lath and or plaster with these waterproof glove’s at a cost that’s the best, bar none.
Plus this helps support us a bit so we can keep making these teaching videos.

Howdy folks, this video was me venting about being beaten up for a couple of weeks by some wannabe tape.
Thought I’d share my pain to my fellow plastering contractors who I know might say, yea man, been there too.
Question, whats the best duct tape you have ever used?
I decided to do this second video on Echo Tape as the other brands have been kicking my Arse while I was waiting for a few boxes of ECHO tape to arrive.
BTW, Duct tape is a vinyl tape with fiber reinforcing.
Like everything in life, not all adhesives tape are created equal, in fact far from it.
I could write out an essay of the low quality tapes that are out there and have cost a fortune for many a plastering contractor who wasted his time trying to cover windows and or doors for typical standard time for a there coat stucco system, “one month.”
Only to watch your labor of covering windows failing to adhere while you apply your first scratch coat, on the very first day.
The quality tape we’re recommending guaranties at least two month of adhering within leaving a nasty gluey residue or equally important won’t self peal in less than a day as most tapes do.
FYI, Jason and I did a video about 2 years ago where we left the tape on for 5 weeks, after we applied the color coat the echo tape peeled off evenly and effortlessly, the competition, shredded.
As a rule my fellow passionate plasterers, I describe in simple Layman’s terms the applications and reasons for our actions so that even my dear old grandma can understand.
“Warning: I make plastering look way easier than it actually is.”
FYI, If interested in the tools we recommend visit our Amazon link at, https://www.stuccoplastering.com/tools we take the guesswork out of buying tools.
