you need a bigger size if you want to put scrim in the hoop . a ladies bracelet is the exact right size. [ATTACH=full]8693[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=full]8694[/ATTACH]

I have been using the 40mm rings for a year now and they hold a scrim fine, like you Boar i often find myself feeling blind for the scrim while up a ladder. I like the ladies bracelet idea though.

theres currently me and 3 workers ,we all travel about and work [trad] from the one berlingo van as a 4 man crew.

i started off solo for 2 yrs , then when the work was overcoming me i took on a parttimer sidekick ,then added a second partimer as work ramped up , then the 1st worker became fulltime and so on. last 3 yrs its been 3 fulltimers plus yours truly - and iv never felt better ! [ course iv been thru bad times with pees- poor employees -but its all part of the learning curve

can you pull a scrim fully thru the 40 mm ? or do you pull it a little way in till it jams,then back out the way it came in to use it ?

sounds about right you have your guys working with you all the time, not being funny you can watch them and there is no way they can pinch your graft, which is always a problem with windies thanks again

youre right there. but a part of me wishes i could trust em and "let them go" so i could sit at home [if i wanted to] cos its a real drag having to oversee it all day in day out . but i cant think of a way ,maybe i will just stay 1 van forever ,i earn enuff so why not ,especially as in the past iv been fiddled/done over countless times by [ex] employees who were right under my nose never mind out on their own - but being close by i then got rid off em immediatelythat i spotted the scam

I just pull it & it comes through nice and easy no jamming, however, I do cut my scrims in half so they are 90 x 45cm ish. but that's only because I find that size easier to work with not because i have to do that to make them fit through the rings.

BUT...this idea posted on Facebook by Maurice Richardson from Australia is the BEST TIP of 2015 for me by a mile. I get the centre of my cloth put a little bit through the ring and secure with a crocodile clip. Always at hand, cable stretches to 2.2 metres so full arm stretch is no issue...KEY-BAK Super 48 Retractable Key Chain Kevlar Cord & Leather Belt Loop Made USA
