    ....... where joist centres are at 380mm? Would I need Noggin the Nogs with 9.5mm plasterboard?

    'No' is a good answer to save time and money.... but not if it should be 'yes'! Many thanks.

    Well it rather depends on your joist spacing; but use 12.5mm not 9.5mm; your back will get over it ;)

    I guess my back might get over it: do you know what the hire shop board lifters are like in case I can't get help? Thanks

    I rarely use 9.5mm boards. I would never use them on a ceiling and only put them on walls if the customer is supplying.

    Im looking into hiring a board lifter for a job where the ceiling needs to be done in soundblock boards.

    Ill be interested to see if they are any good too.

    I had a share in one once, and although cumbersome and a bit of a space stealer it made boarding ceilings a dream.

    You can make a "one off" board lifter specific to the job out of some 4x2 & it costs F/all; all you need at the other end is a stout yard boom! :LOL:
