    To John the Manc, every thing you state was just how it was. Cannot remember seeing a "Scaffler" with a bubble, just like you say a single frog for the Podger (GB) or Spanner. Working in Sub Stations/Pylon Cables etc. while the place still live, shimming down tubes with just a Band & Plate or Double at the bottom to stop you going to meet your maker while doing drop lifts and so on. We only ever used a single board. Still fond memories. Study this photo, takes some believing.Good Old Day's .jpg

    No, I was referring to the 'that's all I need to know' bit. You need a tape for a lot more than just measuring boards mate.

    fair enough mate but im not trying to be funny, i very rarely use a tape and neither did the guy with 40 years experience that i learned from, too many new school scaffs have tape out at every opportunity does my head in but thats the game now i suppose.
