Keeping plaster in the bucket!
I’ve been plastering quite a bit in my 100 year old house in Vermont. I mix the plaster in a 5 gallon bucket with a paddle attached to my 1/2” drill. At first, the real wet plaster was thrown out of the bucket all over the room. I now cover the bucket with a piece of Lexan with a slot cut into it big enough for the shaft of the mixer. No more mess!
Re: Keeping plaster in the bucket!
The best way to keep plaster in the bucket.
1 Fill the bucket with enough water to cover the paddle.
2 Fill the bucket with the powder
3 Squeeze the trigger intermittently (like squeeze...squeeze...ect. Till the inital powder is mostly mixed.Then add more powder or water as needed.
You'll get a feel for it after a bucket or 2. My dewalt only spins @ 450rpms anything higher is to fast in my opinion.
Then you wont need the cover anymore.
Hope this helps
