    A good price, Ive heard of guys paying 40+ a tub for that gear which i wouldnt pay in a million years. I dont think that stuffs any better than USG bluetop either

    OH MY GOD !! if i could sell r mixed joint cement for that price i would have my feet up on a sun lounger in the maldives for the rest of my years!
    Thats a shocking price and well over double what it should be for trade. Just replied to earlier post about USG products we will very soon have pricing available for all forum members at good rates.

    I've just checked an old invoice, i'm currently paying 13.84 for Knauf Ready Mix Lite Easy sand 17ltr Tubs & 7.42 for Knauf 20kg joint filler. Filler is still crap but the new formula of ready mix is on par with bg seems to go a little further too. Hope this helps.
