    Any of you guys use one of these instead of a papering brush.
    There's probably an old duffer that's set in his ways around here, thats never even heard of one. :LOL:
    Brilliant little things for getting paper into corners and holding and cutting.

    You called???? :LOL:

    Been using one since about 1978..are they new 'op noooorth' then? :evil:

    These factory made ones are a bit on the small side IMO...handy tools..but you have to be careful when your..

    Using on a non vinyl...

    Using on uneven walls..

    Using on walls where they might be a risk of the odd nib..they could rip the paper.

    You also have to be careful that you dont push/pull too hard and cause the paste to squidge out from the seams..and as they are fairly thick you dont always get a tight cut along skirts and the ceiling line..

    3 quid for 30p worth of plastic though....bit steep...far easier to keep you eye out for a discarded bit of shop sign and make your own

    Tell what is good though....a longish pile roller sleeve for smoothing the paper out with...compared to a 35 quid hamiltion paper hanging brush.

    Not much good as a straight edge when cutting though :rolleyes:
