I like the Velcro backed puck Screwfix do...

the plush micro fibre cloths are good too

I’d seen these previously and wondered what they’re like...

Does the puck attach to any microfibre pad ?

What size is the cloth ?

I've only used the puck with the pads that came with it to apply DSW and made the job much more comfortable gripping the puck rather than the pad
I see no reason why you couldn't use it with what ever

Cloth is smaller than a Costco microfiber probably about 10" square (25cm)

I'll measure it up later

Trolley and a stool from ebay - the trolley for £19.99 and the stool for £15 with delivery. Bargains.

I could use a workshop stool like that one above so started to think what I had lying around and remembered about this...




Which promptly got chopped up into this...



If I come across a suitable piece of foam then I'll upholster the top

Currently £1 in Poundstretcher...

https://www.poundstretcher.co.uk/mr-...ow-spray-500ml

Just done my screen with it and was surprised how much muck it brought off

I'll see if it's streak-free when i'm next out in it but so far so good!
