    As the title says really... if you could only have one 'non essential' or 'luxury' tool in your tiling tool bag (essential being your trowel, tile cutter drills etc), what could you not live without...

    For me its my electroplated grinding disc from ATS.. It's been a god send since I started using it and I seriously wonder how I ever managed before!

    It’s really good for marking holes that pencil or pen won’t fit in as it’s a spray

    I know, looks pretty cool actually.

    I saw it a couple of years ago on facebook. It had a demo video of a guy using it to mark something but there was a 2” gap between the object and the wall which meant the marker didn’t actually line up. I ended up trolling the video for a bit as I had to mention it to them. Here Endeth my Tale.
