    I use a stanley fatmax. Cuts plasterboard like a knife through butter. Pretty sure I only paid a tenner for it as well :)

    padsaws are the reason dry lining boxes have a flange on them. to cover the diabolical rough edges after the saw has ragged the board.

    My boss has one and its better than the other pile of $%&* he`s got in the tote bag. I find it easy to pearce the board without it knocking a big chunk out the back......

    Tel hasn't got any pals, he kept filling their toolboxes with expandy foam.
    He now has to find other uses for the stuff.

    Only for customers who don't pay, not that I've ever had a problem. Or, for stupid and gormless chavs who cut you up on the motorway! I will happily go 100 miles out of my way just to screw up your day! :D hey hey

    Nice little rhyme that :) Maybe I could take to 'spitting bars' as they say.

    I think these chaps are probably on their third multi tool by now, unless they kept their trusty pad saw. :)

    I always use Bradley the bradawl on the corners of the marked out box on the plasterboard to help the padsaw make a start, then Stanley the Fatmax cuts it out nice and neat. :)

    When not engaged in essential PG Tips hydration or road testing Trigger's Broom my task is to excavate the boxes the plasters have so thoughtfully smoothed in. This is essential kit and doesn't ruin my delicate hands when retrieved from my kit. about four quid with a Screwfix voucher.
