I have been asked today if I am interested in taping 4 units urgent, rush job etc. Prob no power so have to run a genny.

boarded by others, 40 miles from home so 80 miles per day.

Been asked to supply gear for the grand sum of 2.20 per M !!!!

When I enquired how much the tackers were getting so I could judge the standard of boarding, the contracts manager didn't know.


We pay more than this labour only.

They were politely told that those rates the van will not move of the drive.

Problem is there are peeps out there who will ''smash '' out these jobs & then a making good man will pick up the mess.

The next project we are waiting on has been put back a good few months, I can manage OK but I fear we may lose a few good workers if we can't keep them busy.

Tell him thanx but no thanx! Unless u r just trying 2 keep ur guys in work!! 2.20 is not very good but it can b done just skip a coat! But if ur a fiba tape man then a fast set then finish should b fine!

Tut Tut, Beermonster! Skip a coat? How very dare you!! A man of your caliber shouldn't be talking like that, have you no pride??:lmao:
Seriously though, I do agree Capt P shouldnt lower himself to do the job for those rates:nono:

They would be lucky if I fire taped it for those prices :D

As luck would have it just got the go ahead for a insurance job. A house which had a burst pipe in January, finally dried out & ready for
boarding & full re dec.
