Thanks Tilly, I'll bear that in mind if it turns out that no one in west mids has one to pass on. I'm just not likely to be in your neck of the woods anytime soon.

Yes Albert I know its only 3, less than 10 with postage and I could order it today and have it by Thursday but it just seems wasteful for all us builders to be buying our own to use them once. It just seemed that it might be possible for someone who already has one to pass it on to someone else not too far away who could buy it off them for the original price, use it then sell it on to the next builder.

I'm really not that bothered about saving a tenner, I can easily piss more than that up the wall on a Sunday afternoon .

Cheers Andy, that's the idea . if nobody closer to home offers one up in the next day or so I'll take you up on the offer and cover the postage . i'll have to check out the thread detailing builders locations and see if there any fairly near by.
