Automatic and hand tools, sanders, stilts etc. What's hot and what's not.

    Isn't it just Sheetrock, as they took over the UK side of the company? If so, you can sand that by just looking at it.

    As said previously, sands very easy. Don't go near the internal angles with a new disc though! You'll be right thru to the paper

    Ask Marcus,
    As I know Knauf took over sheetrock Europe, But the buckets I still get have sheetrock on them with a little Knauf stamp on the side!
    If it's just Knauf on the buckets it could easy be their own stuff which I did like! They had blue lids I think!

    Yea light joint cement was good stuff but expensive!
    Never really trusted it for putting tapes on but I have never heard of anything going wrong that I've done!
    Great to box with and float out beads etc.
    And sanding was good as u can go a bit lower on the grit and it doesn't scratch!!!!

    Funny you should say that I have just tried the Freemans and yes its great boxed on great and internals too, havnt sanded it yet but don't see a problem with that either. Trouble is as a house basher working for a pittance I just cant afford to use it and nor do the people I work for deserve quality gear for the rates they are paying. So sorry Marcus it will have to used for private work where I can factor it into the price.

    £7.50 a box which works out at the same volume as a bucket!
    If u can buy any buckets of readymix for that price please tell me where and what kind is it?
