    Paint for concrete blocks

    I am currently building a workshop with concrete blocks. On completion I intend to paint the internal walls white to help brighten the workspace. Has anyone had success with plain old interior emulsion paint on concrete blocks? The walls are cavity block work and will be externally rendered...

    Flaky sandstone workshop wall remedy

    Mike G, It seems I have upset you for not thanking you? when infact I did. I thanked you all by name. I asked for information from those who had experience of a similar matter, hence the reason why I had "thanked" Argus on his second time of responding. Whilst the forum is a very useful site...

    Flaky sandstone workshop wall remedy

    The walls in need of stabilisation are also indoors, so my issue is virtually the same as you encountered. I haven't had the chance to speak to Thompsons yet.

    help on how to remove rustins plastic coat

    I have never used the product, so my response may, or may not be of assistance. If you are only looking to remove the coating in isolated areas I would first consider what is the base binder, I.e oil/spirit/cellulose etc. Often the product instructions will indicate which agent is used to clean...

    Stringing sizing tool?

    That would be very much appreciated. I will give it a try in the meantime based on your instruction. Have you any idea how the small clamp, tightened by the wing nut on the back comes into play?

    Stringing sizing tool?

    I bought this little tool a few weeks ago, I believe it to be a tool for the final sizing of stringing or inlay? I am thinking the tool is held in the left hand and clamped to a baton or rail for stability. The adjustable side plates/cutters are then adjusted to the desired gap, then the...

I do not use them on a daily or even on a regular basis, just wondered if people are still using them? The other day I decided to sharpen the blades on a couple. ( I have two with...
