This works in a pinch when no speed set is available.
I know exactly what you suggested with the Plaster of Paris, but it's not a suitable product to use during a tile installation, so why recommend it?

Our industry is plagued with failures because of someone's "great idea" of recommending a product that has no place in a tile industry instead of just using an appropriate product in the first place.
