    i popped into topps tiles to pick up a Rubi 40ltr tub bucket and free trowel for £12.
    I bought the bucket to make life easier cleaning as was told it’s pretty tough.

    I'll be popping into Topps in the next day or so, might just have to pick one up :)

    Is there a choice of trowel size, or is the 8mm the only option?

    Only if I'm cutting down one side of a 1200 repeatedly . You need to be a bit gentle on some cuts or else the tile brakes

    My power line Bosch’s are a lot thinner, lighter and comfortable in hand than bulkier cordless so can’t see it replacing them.

    Good blade, does the job very well but likes of @ATSDiamondTools@ATSDiamondTools can supply one that will match anything it does for less money.
