Plastering Bargain Bucket Tools set
Skim plastering, on both walls and ceilings, is one of the most popular home improvement projects undertaken by DIY Doctor users and we have put together a selection of plastering tools that we would be happy to use ourselves to complete this rewarding job. Use our list as a checklist of the tools that you need and hopefully it will be easy to get the ones that you don't have - before you start and find out that you need them!
Our mixing bucket allows plenty of room for larger and larger mixes as you get more confident and our carpet protector ensures a clean room afterwards while keeping you safe on its non-slip surface. The safety goggles, mask and gloves protect you from lime splashes while mixing and a lightweight, but incredibly durable hawk allows you to plaster all day without your arms dropping off! Finally the mixer paddle, set into your own electric drill, takes the effort out of mixing the plaster and the scoop allows you to keep the plaster mixes to the same consistency every time. These tools are not the cheapest you can buy in the short term, but you will still be using them when all of their cheaper counterparts have fallen apart and the owner is having to buy them again!

We also offer a express delivery service when available giving a next working day service if ordered before 1 pm. Confirmation of delivery will be made on receipt of the order.
We will always try to exceed our stated delivery times where possible or dispatch orders for delivery on the next working day after our cut-off whenever possible.
Our returns policy allows you to return any item if it is not what you require within 14 days of receipt. This is as long as it has not been used and is returned in its original undamaged packaging.
Full details are in our Delivery and Returns page.
Where products have been quoted as having free delivery or delivery included, this will not apply for Northern Ireland and the Highlands and Islands due to the excess delivery charges incurred reaching these locations. Delivery costs can be seen by entering your postcode into the basket.
Why do we charge delivery?
A great many of our customers purchase multiple products, so if we build the delivery charges into each item we will in effect be charging delivery on every product in their basket. We think it is fairer to charge a single delivery cost for the contents of the whole basket once. Some products do have delivery included; this is typically because they are dispatched from another location, generally direct from the manufacturer, as there are restrictions to how they can be delivered due to their size, or if they are liquids, for example.
