The tirolessa sprayer is a simple tool that makes stucco work a blast. I have used the tirolessa to quickly cover my fence, battery dome, and front gates with an inexpensive cement plaster. Spraying makes the plasters stick better due the impact effect and saves a good deal of time compared to trowling by hand. The setup is nothing more than a 60 gallon air compressor, some air hose, a wheel barrel and a tirolessa sprayer, which actually directs the plaster. The air compressor provides enough pressure to shoot heavy mortars a few feet by squeezing a trigger on the sprayer handle. Using it is similar to using a can of spray paint. A commercial shotcrete, blastcrete or gunite setup would cost tens of thousands of dollars, but this setup is perfect for the DIYer. Check out the photo gallery to see some of my tirolessa projects, and read on for more about my setup and to see a video of it in action.
Hi Robert I thank you so much for this lovely article and it has really helped me to get over doubt and understand trust. The one point that jumped out at me the most, is in one of the 101 ways you say “give them the benefit of the doubt”…… I reflected on this and it was quite strong for me. For me when saying this we are implying that there are benefits in doubting and so the brain thinks oh great its good to doubt. I realised this was what has happened with me, a belief that doubt is beneficial. Not at all, I realised there are no benefits to doubt and the energy of doubt is very disempowering compared to the energy of trust which empowers us to be strong and go further. I am is going to make sure that people start taking this sentence out of their vocabulary, as words have such a strong effect on us as children, we believe them. Therefore I will no longer give anyone the benefit of the doubt but I will trust they know what they are doing.
