got a kitchen to do coming up and today we went in and pulled out the old kitchen and skipped it. as usual not a particularly nice job. grease and general rankness everywhere.

the worktop mason mitre at first glance looked a bit on the rough side even for an old kitchen

royal oak. if your fitting say bushboard tops. do you use speedy clamps? i find them so much easier than the old style type that youve gotta use a spanner on

Do you mean Zip Bolts, Ayjay? I've been using Unika Easibolts on jobs and they are a lot easier than the old style bolts, mainly because they hold themselves in place. Available (SFX and B&Poo) and cheap, too. Have to agree - the standard ones are cr@p

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!

If that's what they want, I'll fit them all day. :lol:

I can remember two in the last ten years or so, cheapo rental fitouts.

I ain't proud, just tired.
