    I am looking for to 2' blades for the old standup mastic trowel. Crain or Gunlach made them. I have a couple of handles. Need blades. I have seriously used these for ten to twelve years. Used to have a trowel notcher until it got stolen with a $400 bag of goodies. Pulled miles of PU adhesive with these trowels. About to make my own, but would pay for good blades if I can find them.

    I use to have one of those,(Crain) think I gave it to my brother. The undulations of the slab would let the adhesive act like filler due to the wide blade and not allowing force that a smaller hand trowel can make to slightly flex and remove excess.

    Got tired of notching it with the rod saw also. So I think it's in his shed if he hasn't tossed it, doubtful.
