My brother inlaw and others were surprised when we didn't buy a Humber. I think now he is starting to get the idea from reading such posts....

But to keep things ballanced & fair there not the only manufacturer that we avoided because of finishing quality issues ...

Buff,
Sorry, being a bit dim. Can you explain what this is/show a photograph?
I have shortly got the job of pulling/pushing wires through an 'A' frame, so anything that will make the job easier/possible I would be very interested in

Ian,

I can do better than that...here is the link to B&Q site

http://nextday.diy.com/app/jsp/produ...roductId=67849

It was 12.99 well worth spending. I cut the large hook off the end and created a smaller one. I have managed to pull my VHF and Nav cables back through relatively easily, without having to create large holes!

I tend to find now that there is a 'tool' for most things you can think of out there somewhere . Things are so much easier with the right tool ...........
