    Default Introduction to the masses


    HI T&J World

    I've been involved in all aspects of dry construction all my working life,
    Started at the very bottom of the ladder labouring bumping boards til my blisters burst and bled ,then went through all the aspects of work tacking ,sticking,metal fixing,then started doing bits of making good which led be to become a Jointer ,hand first then onto machine through to dabbling in continuous flow machines and spray jointing.
    I'm currently working all over the south of England and things are looking very prosperous at the moment I have lots of work on going and numerous contacts offering work if anyone needs a helping hand pointing them in the right direction give me a shout I'd be happy to help fellow Jointers out & any other drylining trades.
    Cheers all the best Happy Sunday ppl

    Another nice intro. Welcome to the site.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.

    Glad to hear it, BM. I'm sure we will be busy this year too, it's just slow in starting, a few sites yet to get out the ground etc.
    Had 3 days at home last week then busy this week. Dunno what next week will bring.....

    Welcome new myself. Just wondering how did you get on with the spray jointing, I done a few jobs 2/3 years back through USG pro-spray they called it. There don't seem to be much call for it Bedfordshire way. Shame really thought it was pretty good

    Hi scrimman,

    i found the sprayjointing good but the outlay for the tools/machine is expensive and there just doesn't seem to be enough sites with the m2 required to justify running it.
    just need miles of clean metrage to come our way ;-)
    hows things your way ? Found any work ?
