    I used the Fein Supacut to help me with abrading and it was a general, it really performed well till i dropped it, lookily i had completed most of the work but it still upset me ive got to drop it into data tools tomorrow to hopefully get repaired, its only the lever that got snapped :sad:

    We do a lot of site work and we are good at it. But we do domestic as well and we are good at that as well. I'll set our guys on site against any of you in a 'race' and I can put them in the queen's bedroom and challenge you on quality. I agree with Kirk... good deccies can adapt and do both. End of.

    Some good work there Chris, well done.

    We mist and two, u/c and double gloss (acrylic) on new work. Get some surprised looks from contractors but we do the job properly and are competitive price wise. We perhaps don't win as many new build tenders as others, but those we do, we keep.

    good to see yu on here fingerpainting, hope too see more from you, for the most part you can have a decent exchange of views and debate without people getting silly and abusive

    I welcme yout comments, previous to this last stint I was on site in 04, it was new work for the mod and they had higher standards tha sitework generally, returned to sitework 3 months ago and found standards considerably higher and less time to achieve it, I also found that to be the norm from talking to others

    so those that are doing sitework, including chris on his commercial work are saying its hardwork , standards are high and you have to get a wriggle on to complete on time, its only a few domestic are saying otherwise.

    I will do sitework again but it is punishing, this time last year I had a heart attack and couldnt work for 3 months, then when I did go back to wotk it was one or two small jobs a month , end of nov I was doing 100 mph on site, ive proved something to myself and learnt a bit in the process, time to be sensible for once and accept Im knocking on and have a dickie heart, I can sell on skill, knowledge, experiance and standard of finish and I think thats what i should focus on now

    Thanks Mike and mistcoat, for your comments.
    I'll probably be as infrequent a poster as normal, but will try not to stir up any hornets nests!
    Just to clarify I wasn't trying to say one is better or worse than the other, but I think good deccies should be able to cope with both (the physical side of site work being an understandable exception in some cases as you point out Mike) given a little acclimatisation time!

    On a side note on another forum " theuksbestdecorator" notsure if he's a site man or domestic or just pi*ses on us all, but he charges £40 a day and says he's very proud 100% of his work comes from word of mouth and says we all need to up are game if were going to compete on his level....
