    Hi ALL

    I am starting up and need to buy some Poles & Brushes, Traditional Window Equipment (Squeegees, Channels, T-Bars, Sleeves, Handles, Bucket etc) and also a Dragonfly system & Poles.

    With regards to the Traditional equipment, i really don't know what to buy (but would like it to include a 6" set) as there is so much choice, so any advice would be most welcome.

    Ideally, i would like to buy it all from one place and get a good deal

    Regards

    Vinny

    Good shout Mark about the Vikan, i think i will buy this as part of my toolkit and only buy the Dragnfly if i secure business that needs it. When it says use with water, is that Pure water from the system?

    Also, with regards to buying Unger from WCW, have you seen the varied selection of choice?! They don't make it easy for a newbie.... :Image6:

    As regards a platform I use a aluminium step bought from maplins £7.99. Does the job but any step up does the job.

    I do most types of conservatory roof using my ladder setup.Using a hop up like you suggested in the link would be no good for me as would not give me enough height. Simples...
