Default repairing old plaster,whats best?

I have been painting for a long time but must admit restoration is not my forte.We started a job today,removed paper from 1920s or so plaster,never been painted.The cracks are my major concern,whats best,durabond? fibertape?. Is there a patching plaster out there better than durabond? thanks very much,Rick

Here is another thread. Just read the first few posts, it goes way off topic after that!

IMO- Screws ( there are other methods, but this is the fastest and cheapest) are the most important part of plaster repair.
I have refixed countless repairs that were just done with mud and tape.

Easiest thing to use is fibatape and general drywall compound....That is the surest way to permanently stop them from cracking again...
