    Well mine arrived today, and a quick scout about the garage, I came up with a few buckets, Evo and Larsen ready-mixed tubs, Larsen large tubbed gear, Nanolight mixing bucket, several 10l paint tubs........

    Andrew, What was the problem - Are the buckets you have To BIG or to SMALL?
    I have a prototype adapter that should fit inside 28cm or 27cm . Would this work for you?

    Does it have to set in to the bucket? Would be just as handy to have a flat oversize base to fit anything.

    What size is the diameter of the normal bucket over there Ray what size do you recommend for Phil

    Not really a standard size. I have about 6 buckets stacked in the van and there's 3 different diameters with a fair range.

    here is my opinion.....for what its worth.......
    if it was constructed out of stainless steel.....and the bottom platter was tapered from 11"(279.4mm) to 30"(304.8mm) and approx 4" (101.6mm) deep....... and you could strip it apart for cleaning......
    it is worth £80-100 of anyone's money..........in its current form............it works!......and its priced right!.......(if you do not include shipping!)

    all the best

    It is a good idea Lee (think his wife must be near by) but the stainless steel one would scare of a lot of tilers $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    WHY?..........every trowel I buy is stainless.......but then again I work clean......so it is an investment as opposed to being DISPOSABLE!.......if you catch my drift...........

    No peter, it does not HAVE to sit on a bucket. The reason I invented it that way was covered many times in this thread already - Sponge and Water handy - Comfortable height when working on the floor.
    We will figure this part out, I just want somebody that I sent one to, to use it and take pictures and video.
