    got to say at £15 I had low expectations, missing parts, not fitting, wobbling like hell

    But all present, painted well, no scratches, well packed and rolls as if its on glass :):)

    Bolts up rock solid and just the right height to polish the top half of the side of a car.

    A defo for those of us who are getting on a bit LOL :):)

    Actually quite comfy and a useful tray to put your polish and polisher on.
    Will it last? At £15 who cares.....

    Also bought an M14 3” backing pad to use on my grinder to polish up our granite worktops
    £1.13 delivered from china. How do they do it ... I cant even post a letter to London for that!

    Looks useful though.

    A rolling stool sounds rather uncomfortable. I suppose as we get older we have to live with things...

    They sell one in Costco, a feral child was scooting around very happily on one in Liverpool can't remember how much but if you have a nice smooth floor they help stop the wear and tear on your back whatever the age.

    That’s probably me being in N.Ireland
    Charging £6 to stick it on a boat in fair everything costs us more .
    Think I will take it to Europe court of human rights. Or maybe not with
    Brexit.

    Would this roll on block paving?

    I have a a Sealey branded one exactly the same as the OP, pretty much worn the wheels out on my tarmac drive but it is very useful

    Shame no-one has answered your earlier question - I also have a block paving driveway - and rather than a caravan step I have a small solid oak stool that came with a coffee table we bought second hand decades ago, no longer used in the house so demoted to garden hop-up use.

    I think we have a small fold up stool, not sure why I didn't use that last time.

    Know what’s good the we stool for kneeling on for weeding then you can flip it over and sit on it.
    It’s rubber padded so easy on the bum and knees.

    I’d say it depends how smooth your block paving is. I’ve rolled over backwards in a very comedy style on mine on the tarmac when the wheels jammed on a loose stone. Looked very funny on my CCTV and I lay there creasing myself in laughter. I wasn’t so happy when my pressure washer hose blew off the front of my pressure washer and hit me in the forehead - that looked great on CCTV as well though...

    You're reminding me of the time an airline crowsfoot connector came apart and hit my trainee very close to his eye. Only 120psi on the line, but the result looked so awful I was worried he would loose an eye - at the age of 21!! Ambulance trip to hospital, collected him 4 hours later, all he had was a black eye - boy was I relieved for him. Would imagine your pressure waher hose had a bit more than 120psi on it, but being liquid rather than gas the pressure dissipates much quicker.

    So - do you still have the video footage to post for our delectation??:):)
