There’s lots of horse hair around our house. Not just in the plaster. There’s a weird void above the bread oven that has fistfuls of the stuff in it. Presumably left there by a plasterer centuries ago.
Aha, well that would be the serious grown up thing to do but it’s a lot of mess and would require us to empty the room. I had in mind a temporary fix pending later demolition, so was just wondering about those washer things.
Ah, the problem is the ceiling is already very low - my head touches it now, and a layer of plasterboard will make that worse, and probably won’t stop the plaster falling and presumably cracking the new board.
We have a sagging lath and plaster ceiling with a big split in it. It may last a few more weeks. In the longer term we are going to smash through it with a new staircase so we are looking at a short term fix. Does anyone know how feasible it is to use plaster repair washers of the sort they use in Murica, where you put 100 of them into the ceiling to lift the plaster back to the laths, and where I can find them in the UK?
Have I missed something about Kanye West’s born again news?
Alas it looks more like 36.4mm
Oh, let me run to the garage and measure the seat tube on my Klein - it has a dull black clamp at the moment that really bugs me!
Phew! Just emerged from Birtwhistle’s Mask of Orpheus at ENO. Totally bonkers and dark.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention @BernardRenault, it just appeared at the wrong time for me!
Here is one I dug up this morning
