    joynz replied to a thread R7 globes - LED in Lighting
    Thanks. It’s for a fan light so won’t be dimmed (no dimmer on the control). I think I’d prefer a 100w equivalent - would this be OK since there’s no heat?

    For back blocking, the CSR Red Book instructs that the back of the plaster back block should be covered in cement using a 6mm notched trowel - with the 6mm beads at 20mm centres. QUERY: Is a notched trowel really necessary? If so, I’ll buy one. (History: This is a follow up to a question I posted in 2021 about back blocking a celing crack that appears at the edge of an 80s extension where two plaster sheets were butt-joined - but not on a framing member....
