    Toolbox poll

    Totally agree, no need to drop the board anymore to cut to size just scribe in place and use a cordless multi tool with a broad blade.

    I actually got excited when I seen the title toolbox’s. What a let down.

    Both not worth buying in my opinion. The only advantages place for the tape is on velux windows, but It’s over priced. Bars are pointless props smaller jobs boardlifter big jobs.

    Want a demo of a new British Plaster?

    Agree but when it’s a patch job or a small mix then it’s a no brainer.

    Newly plastered wall is bumpy.

    Think you might have went straight over light switch, I can see it slightly but that’s nit picking

    Newly plastered wall is bumpy.

    Yes it’s not the best!! Easy fix if you sand down the effected areas. Obviously sand the thick of it off first with a courser grit then finish off with a finer grit.

    Autofeed driver

    Not sure if you mean yellow feed and black feed rather than handles? But if that’s the case yellow one is first generation and black is second generation. I’ve got the first generation which had problems sticking (replaced via warranty) Still sticks every so often more with longer screws. You...

    Sometimes 125mm ain't enough - suggestions for a decent 230mm angle grinder?

    Everyone I’ve talked to that has Metabo tools has rated them highly, if I hadn’t already got as much Dewalt cordless I’d of went with them. But what’s their batteries like that’s what put me off Makita the batteries are not as good as Dewalt

    Sometimes 125mm ain't enough - suggestions for a decent 230mm angle grinder?

    I’ve bought a couple of cheaper ones in the past (Macallister etc) and they burn out/ don’t work as well as a medium - high quality ones. 90% of my power tools are Dewalt but they didn’t have a 240v 9” grinder in stock so got a Makita and I can’t fault it. It’s night and day compared to the...

    Tenant complaints could soar with Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018

    Agree that some are substandard but a lot of the tenants are lazy thick T***s that dry laundry on rads with widows closed (no ventilation) Also never clean on a regular basis.

    K-Rend damp patches after rain

    If the water is coming inside via the lintel/steels that means that a cavity tray wasn’t installed which should have been under today’s regs. Having said that a rendered wall would have prevented the driving rain from penetrating into the cavity. Without an inspection from a competent person...
