I've used it on a bit of my hall ceiling (just a corner, and there's more to do, but overhead work is so miserable I've been procrastinating on the rest for YEARS). The corner I did feels rock-solid.Fanner wrote:Hope you don't mind a bit of a post-hijack here; Have any of you tried the "Plaster magic"? It almost looks too good to be true. . .
Googling to remember "Big Wally's" name (Rory Brennan, a preservation plasterer based in VT, I saw him at the NH old house & barn show last spring), I also came across this review with comments (which include others' experiences):

If you have back issues of OHJ, check out my Saving Irreplaceable Plaster article in the Nov.1987 issue. Instead of using the adhesives mentioned in the article use Rory Brennan's Plaster Magic products, they are formulated especially for this method of injected adhesive bonding. But remember, no products are "magic", success is in the method, not the product. Since 1982 I've used a wide range of adhesives for this method and most all of them have worked well.
