i popped into topps tiles to pick up a Rubi 40ltr tub bucket and free trowel for £12.
I bought the bucket to make life easier cleaning as was told it’s pretty tough.

I'll be popping into Topps in the next day or so, might just have to pick one up :)

Is there a choice of trowel size, or is the 8mm the only option?

Only if I'm cutting down one side of a 1200 repeatedly . You need to be a bit gentle on some cuts or else the tile brakes

My power line Bosch’s are a lot thinner, lighter and comfortable in hand than bulkier cordless so can’t see it replacing them.

Thought I'd give these a try.

Good blade, does the job very well but likes of @ATSDiamondTools can supply one that will match anything it does for less money.

I was using old paint or tub adhesive buckets but got fed up of them cracking so thought I’d give the Rubi bucket a go

As a DIY'er and taking inspiration from lots of forums (fora?) I decided that I really needed a spiked roller for SLC £23, the idea of a pin leveller appealed but they are silly money (£85 so I invested about 10 mins and say 50p into my DIY version! Seemed to work.

Pin levellers won’t really help you level a floor, just help smooth it as they follow the general undulations of the floor imo.

We are at risk of retailers upping their prices on Tuesdays at this rate :D

How can it be a free trowel for £12?
trowels are £14 to buy and bucket around same price, it’s just what offer they got on

So the bucket is £14 and the trowel is normally £14 too?.... jeepers, I can get those buckets for £2.45 (same type too) and the trowels are nasty and can get similar for £4.50 from Stax trade centres.

I just bought something I have wanted for years.
My wife will kill me when (if) she finds out.
...you'll have to wait until Tuesday to take the micky out of me though! ;)
