    3 months off work

    last year I was told I had adhesive capsulitis, got a second opinion and it wasn't that, it was shoulder impingement, ie a bone spur growing and trapping a tendon. Went in for a "straightforward" op and then got told post op that it was a little bit more than MRI had picked up. Had the spur...

    My 1st Job Tiling Virgin wants reassurance after maybe biting off more than be can chew....

    Hello, I'm relatively handy when it comes to DIY, but I have never tried tiling before and I may have come over all ambitious for my first attempt. It feels like I have read and watched a hundred tiling websites and youtube tiling videos, along with speaking to "experts" who have provided...

    Tile colour rubbing off?

    The cutting of Porcelain tiles, 16mm, with a Vitrex bridge saw, has been very successful, holding cuts of 900mm to 0.4mm. BUT All the blades I have tried, ATS, Marcrist and Rubi, have all started to cut off centre. I have dressed the blade with a Rubi cleaning block and this will improve...

    Vitrex Vitrex Ulitmate blade walks off line

    I am cutting 16mm porcelaine paving with a Vitrex bridge cutter. I fitted a Vitrex Ultimate blade to replace the standard blade. It cuts better, with less chipping but on a 600mm cut it walks off line by 3mm. The saw runs true and the standard blade cuts true but it chips like a MF. So any...
