    From experience at times these jobs aren't worth it and your just being used by someone desperate

    There was a good thread on here where someone did a block or flats or something with a pole. I always liked the idea of abseiling a load of offices myself.... different clunge in every window. :thumbsup:

    Done that in Birmingham, not easy work at all but I was on £9.00 a hour and this is 20 years ago, also used the lethal bosons chair and done loads of work from cradles. Heights i have never had issues with but always respected them
