    I need to put up some plasterboard when i have take off render and wish to dot and dab it but i am not too sure how to 'hold it' whilst it is going off?

    All of the D&B bits i have seen have been from the floor up, this bit is about 5 foot in the air

    Anyone know how to do this? Does it just stay there and go off without moving or would it need to be held in somehow

    How thick/thin does the batten have to be for this?

    I don't have a great deal of space to put in a batten. Is it possible to D&D and then screw into the cured mix?
