    A steamer will be the end of any remotely loose plaster!
  5. And more soul destroying when big lumps of plaster come with it.

    No sign of anthrax, unless symptoms include sobbing and rocking on a corner asking "wtf have I done??"

  6. They'll be worth a bit as a set..eBay em :)
  7. If the holes aren't that big, you could fix them yourself with a bit of patching plaster.

    If it's any comfort, the plaster in our 30's house will fall off if you give it a stern look...

  8. No steamer, just a soggy sponge and a scraper. :(

    No time for eBay! First to collect can have for a small sum or help with stuff.

    Also, while I'm feeling generous, working retro kelvinator fridge freezer. Free. Collect and I'll help lug it up from the cellar :D

  15. So a £40 for all 8 would be a bargain?

    On eBay they seem to be about £5 each. No idea if some are worth more, or if the set is more as a whole though!

  17. If plaster is hanging on for dear life instead of taking paper off, leave it on and take the plaster off - the paper comes of with the plaster :)

    Let me know if you would like some rubble bags I'll happily donate some to a good cause :)

    Full set seems to be 12 plates
  19. Get a felt tip and sign the back of them "Guy Gibson". They'll be worth £50 each then...
