Detailing Stool...

Thinking about getting one of these in a few months (also dropping hints for poss present) - seen the Slims one (as well as just a mechanics stool) and was wondering what peopleís thoughts were of them, are they help or tend to be used once or twice and then just sit there

Bear in mind, Iím not a professional and this isnít something thatís going to get used week in / week out, so itís not something thatís essential... also presently, polishing / waxing etc all done by hand - so Iím wondering if itíd be a help or a hinderance doing the car by hand sat on one.

Do they reduce in height nicely ?

Any help / advice / recommendation greatly received

Cheers
A

I think they are a hindrance for the reason you say, especially if the wheels do not lock. I occasionally use a static stool which does not move when you exert any pressure but prefer a decent kneeling pad if anything so I can work at the correct angles for tasks as I work round the car.

That's great thanks, this was what I was wondering

Edit: just looked at the spec again and the rectangle has a slightly smaller foot print than the round one...

I bought one of these Andy I got it for standing on whilst I do the roof of the Jeep however it doubles as a seat. I got it for 19.99 at the time and it was a great but as I can use it for a variety of things

Cheers - obviously I know it's due to the weather, but this is my concern, that this is where it would live most of time...

What's the padding like on the seat ?

Now, I've got one of these for decorating, but didn't think about using it as a seat for when I'm detailing - might give it a go, as at least then I can see if sitting down on the job is any easier than bending / crouching / kneeling...

And I suppose it has the added bones of not being able to move around under me

Cheers bud
