Plastering Trowel small for laying and flattening final coat plaster, these cheap trowels are fine for first timers for practice but an expensive expert trowel will make plastering bigger areas easier and have a better finish because of the sharpened flexible steel prices for professional Trowels start from £30 to £60 

Plastering Hawk for carrying your plaster while laying your plaster with your Trowel, This Hawk is perfectly adequate but i prefer the metal Marshall town Hawks, from £15 - £25

Plastering Brush with long soft bristles to hold a lot of water without dripping and stroke the plaster gently where as a short stiff brush would scratch and scar your plaster finish these brush are great choices to work with

Plaster Scratch or Render key tool or scratch coat tool this tool is used in first coat render and other products, after base coat is laid and flattened but still wet, this tool will put lines in the plaster or render you have laid, we put wiggly lines in and if you angle your hand and scratch tool correctly you will create great lines for final coat to hang onto 

Mixing Drills, this is a great budget mixing drill but do not expect it to last for too many projects a professional mixing drill set up will cost from £200-£400
