Of some expamet thin coat angle and stop beads

Boxes of 50. 2.4m
55p+ VAT per bead on both

Quite impressed at the price especially the stops as I've never been able to get anywhere near that even for the cheaper shite.

The likes of whack and r&j are knocking angles out at 59p+
And their stops are about £1 each

Boring post but got nothing else to do today.

Love getting cheap materials lol

It's from less2fix
Free delivery is over £40 and can take up to 5 days but for that price you can't grumble.

They've actually sent Simpson beads this time but to me the Simpson ones are better than expamet certainly no worse.
Do you really rate them beads I used them a few times I think there absolutely dreadful quality

Funny how you get certain stuff like scrim beads ect and you just know if it's good or not nothing worse than getting stock in and it's crap

I only used them a few times but the beads felt like if they were made out of lead, not for weight but how they were bending and for looks. Anyway I didn't get on with them.
Luckily I had a fair few boxes of 3m beads at 60p a length last summer from a local merchant, only a handful left so must look into it where to get some

Yeah I must say I've never had any trouble with expamet simpson or catnic beads the rest like locusrite are terrible and thin as f**k.

I managed to get 2 full boxes of the catnic orange scrim last year softer a lot of searching. It's the best I've come across up to now. At £2.50 a roll including vat it was a bargain.
Problem is you can't seem to get it now more.
Had a batch of senco collated screws jewsons selling of for next to nothing that has been spot on as well

Tradepoint do the gyproc one that is extra sticky and orange but is overpriced.
The one in the link that is blue works out a lot cheaper. Should be about same quality as well. Will order a couple of boxes next week.
Tbh Dave the blue is as sticky as the orange one and it don't fray either

I find expamet one crap tbh, and every now and again there profile is wrong and ooohhhhh I get fed up even thinking about it. Catnic definitely best I've used.

Hate shitty scrim that frays. Or doesn't stick to s and c to plasterboard angles. Can raise the blood pressure some days if you're scrimping ceiling joints off Stilts and scrim keeps landing on the floor

Haha
I had to use that euro scrim other day on a joint that had some bonding floor to ceiling
Could I f**k get the f**k*r to stick
I ended up stapling the scrim to the bonding!

What's even worse is when you put it on ceiling half cover it with skim from a trowel and it all f**k**g falls off on your head
