What tools or materials did you carry on van or use that you don't now. Here are some of mine. Thinking back I realise how little I knew stumbling along. Gloss brushes in water pot. I stopped that early on. Terrible... Red 1-2.5 inch meteor brush from Johnstone's. Bought loads and used to gloss doors when I was 19 with them. Lovely black bristles.What! Just thought it was best brush for gloss. I also used to cut in with them as a lad and would shape bristles with scissors. Crazy. Cheap unbranded masking tape. Won't touch that now. Crown sold a stiff tang scraper that was longer than any other on market by a good 15mm. I bought many of them over a 15 year period. Don't own that type or size now. Henry vac. Owned a few of them but not now. Wooden bench to stand on. Used for years Harris brushes. Bought many over the years as the painting side of my work developed,but not now as naff. They always were though. Push fit poll cage and pole. Stupid things. Cheap yellow sleeve long plie 9 inch used for everything. Curtains and bedding as dust sheets The best ones I had were giant curtains and stamped NHS , all pretty colours bought off eBayoh God.. Bags of any powdered filler from trade centre like tetrion I hated that stuff but stuck with it as correct product. Mixing in ice-cream tub or similar as I was copying others. White spirit I don't carry or brushmate now. Own brand trade caulk that was 99p per tube as it was cheap. Green scratch 120 grade by the metre. Not used that in years. Pole sander. Thought that was the business cheep paper dust mask. Useless but that was the normal if you bothered to ware.
