    Default Best Scaffolders that you've worked with...?

    Best Scaffolders you've ever worked with?

    Do you have a mental list in your head of top scaffs from years ago, or still actually work with/know them?


    Heres a few i have worked with:

    Eddie Hanson (from Middlesboro) - Excellent Scaffolder and a real honest gentleman.
    Darryl Venn (originally from Bristol, now lives in Essex) - Lightning fast, very good knowledge, overall one of the best ive worked with.
    Vic Schneider (from London) An old time Benchmark Scaffolder, almost unmatched in scaffolding knowledge, real nice fella.
    Neil Williams (from Nottingham) - Top scaff and nice overall bloke.
    Ray Dwolitka (from Manchester) - Fast, agile was one of Trad's top scaffs back in the late 90's/early 00's.

    Some of the spellings might be wrong, lol.
    Just a few that ive worked with over the years, what about you guys?
    Any stick in your head?
