    Reminds me of many years ago when I was in my late teens / early twenties there used to be a gorilla get in my bedroom, always on a Friday or Saturday night..? He used to sneak in while I was fast asleep, chuck all my neatly folded cloths all over the bedroom leaving a right mess...and no matter how well I hid me wallet he always managed to find it and clear me out, and sometimes I think the dirty bas!?/d was sh!/!ng in me mouth cus I used to have the foulest taste ever on a Sunday morning..???
    Still he's not bothered me for years now..?
    in fact when I think about it the last time he payed a visit was the night of my stag night...then it all just stopped, I wonder why...??? Perhaps its because I have the wife next to me now he dare'nt come in the room....!!!!!
    Just occasionally he manages to get past her...! but it is very very rare these days....!!!

    Wait till you get a van mount cnc. The first time I used it my minibore got in that much of a tangle, I just picked the whole lot up and dumped it in the back of the van. Embarrassed was not the word :rofl:

    yeh i am getting better with each day ...apart from the sunflower incident....bloody stupid tall things bound to fall over in the wind....and the trolley getting poled over..oops watch out for that pole....all went quiet well....

    did the first one complete front and thought i could sneak over and do the babys bedroom over the road without anyone knowing....yeh.....:specs:specs:specs
    cant get away with anything me....then i had to put up with mother and baby watching my every move...why me?

    actually she is very nice and i explained thats the only safe way to do that window and she said it was a good idea...

    The ones you got a tiny bit of spotting on, blitz their frames and top seals and i mean blitz em.

    Then bang your pole or use your hand and rough up the bristles to get as much water off the brush as poss, and suck up as much water off the frames with the brush.
    Then do the window as normal, but use the bristles on the brush to just touch the top seal so the drops on the seal get sucked back into the brush, then when rinsing make sure you get your brush as close as poss to the glass so no splash back and make sure the jets dont touch the top seal.

    To make rinsing easier at height, just lift one edge of the brush off the glass and use the other edge as a rest. But make the edge that is still resting on the glass the leading edge so the jet that is off the glass rinses the brush marks off the window as it goes along.
    This will save your neck and shoulders loads of grief bud

    ta keir ..i hadnt really thought about it to be honest....i mean if you see someone do it you dont really look at what they are actually doing....i will read and re read til its all absorbed...only going to do one front tomorrow all leaded and of course once dry i will have my beady eye on it. i get the wfp out to wake me up....it does warm you up...

    ..but there is a lot more to wfp than people think ...thanks again ..your a great help...i do think its a defo part of my windowcleaning future ....i kinda liken it to getting me big screen tv on the wall after watching the old box in the corner...its the future and its helping me loads..cant wait to try it on certain jobs...especially the georgian crappyist jobs i have...:D

    the more i read that the more i realise what mistakes i have made...i will use the keir technique from now on...:D

    Yep your right cnc there is more to it than people think. You will master it just keep practising keep your gear in good order, upgrade your equipment when you can afford to, and it all comes together....
    You will be fully wfp before you know it mate
