    Moving to oz soon and they seem to have falls in most rooms in their houses. Just wondered how other people work out their falls and letterboxing etc. Cheers guys

    Mark, it's usually determined by the tray, they dictate where the envelope cuts need to be

    In the US and Oz they make up their own formers and falls using a dry sand cement mix. They will have their own regs that have to be complied with. In the UK some people still make their own falls but nearly all are premade formers. Envelope cuts usually from each corner of former to the nearest corners of the drain.
