    Default fingers or tool??!!

    was gonna set this thread up as a poll (up to you dave!!)

    wondered where we all stood on "tooling" up the silicone!!

    or do we prefer wet or soapy fancy tooling kit??

    used the soapy finger for years (once was a window fitter)
    now use the fugi, since you dont use any water with it you
    can sort any mistakes straight away
