    I've just bought a pair of Site ones from screwfix, only started wearing them yesterday so I'll let you know how I get on with them and, more importantly, how long they last.

    Is the blade turning in the right direction, as you push the tile in to the blade sounds like it's rotating up into the tile not cutting down onto the tile....if see what I mean.

    But as they've been on for some 40 years with tubbed adhesive, I think the customer got value for money. We would often get to a site kitchen or bathroom after the painters and find the walls emulsioned! So either the Bal Tad adhesive or the emulsion had special properties.

    I'd fought with a fair few to be honest! Lath and plaster > BAL Primer > BAL Whitestar (or Grip was it back then before the new Grip came out agan?) - lethal combination. Replaced walls just to retile a splashback lol

    Ahhhh there you go then. Swear I saw them in the blue pilks packaging, and originally remembered some in white johnsons packaging. Lots and lots of dust on them. Back in the topps tiles days. Notice the colour was taken from a sample of vomit in the picture. lol

    Has it been finished long? Might just be moisture still in the floor maybe and the grout colour is quite susceptible to moisture? Just thinking out loud.

    Bit of both Dan - Johnsons Cristal made the 'chicken' textured vein range from the early 70s and Pilkingtons brought out a no pattern vein due to its success and innovative design!

    I find carrying the cutter with the measuring still attached there's every chance of scraping a wall or some paint work in the house.
