Speedskim ST Technology™ – The Advantages

- Ox Speedskim Plastering Rules Brings no moisture to the surface allowing quicker deployment of final steel trowel accelerating the overall process.
- Blade profile with specially formed ribs accelerates the distribution of plaster over a wider area, and dramatically improves levelling of uneven surfaces. In addition these unique ribs hold on to excess plaster.

- Innovative component design gives increased blade stability in wide ranging seasonal temperatures – straight blade system.
- New button release robust end caps give Speedskim® unique interchangeable blade feature – making all sizes extremely versatile and cost effective.

With no moisture on the surface, this achieves a flatter and faster finish. This allows plasterers to complete larger surface areas quickly and easily.

OX Speedskim Reviews
DIY'er Reviewer plasterer
" Great bit of kit. Really good for flattening and finishing. Really speeds the process up. The manufacturer responded to review feedback and curved the end edges which helps prevent leaving lines on your work. Highly recommended for plastering... even for beginners "
" Now plastering is not my favourite pastime, this however made the experience much better. Using a 1200 speedskim st and a 600 speedskim st the job went smoother (no pun intended) Trowel on, flatten off Using the speedskim then polish up. Great Product "
" If you plaster a fair amount this certainly speeds things up a bit. I'd say it's a must have ( to be honest I have several sizes now and it's increased my productivity by a fair amount).
Having done a lot of plastering, I thought it’s time to treat my self to a stainless steel speedskim. I think they’re brilliant especially when skimming big hits. It takes minutes to flatten off. I wouldn’t skim again without it!
Well, only had it day... delivery superb. Used it on 1 wall. As an enthusiastic diy person, I've dot dabbed walls, and used multi finish. Ceiling ok. Didn't have this tool then. But used on a wall so far. Awesome. Trowelled on 1st coat, used this to flatten. In fact, so good, i didn't did second coat! Trowelled up and sprayed water to finish. Wall imo is excellent. May one day treat myself to the handle for ceilings. So good for flattening. Glad i got the stainless 900 mm. Perfect. Oh, 4 stars cos its nearly 60 quid, but i guess ok if you're in the trade.
Recieved mine today. Really fast delievery. Must of been packaged good enough as item looks like no faults. Cant wait to test it out 2moro on skim. For anyone who wonders what these are like ive tried ones something like this. They literly take 5-10 mins to first trowel in all the upstairs of a house (every room split). Plenty of time saved to throw on alot more skim, give u plenty of time to continue troweling them or just if u want to decrease the stress on the body. Must have tool lads. Even if u dont like it u can polish the walls last trowel with them, takes about 30 seconds a wall if u were to use it for that!! No matter what you will get your use outta it for something. Anyone who gives low stars either isnt a professional to notice the benefits or cant use it
The time and effort this saves you flattening and finishing it's worth every penny. My only regret is not buying it sooner. If your unsure if it's worth the money, now I've used it, I'd pay twice the amount for one. Also, having also used an all plastic, I definitely prefer this, as I can use up till the final pass
