    Builders warehouse currently has a DIY bathroom silicone kit with the propper edging tools available in mass quantities for about R60

    I was always scheptical about the ise of these silicone tools and having built several tanks without them, doubted their usefulness

    let me say this simply..... these tools are not "nice to have" or "lekker" they are absolutely essential .............!!!!!!!

    If you are building any tanks in the future, or considering it, go get these tools and if there is no builders in your area, get a mate to buy them for you !!!!!!!

    It kinda looks like this but instead of three tools it is a 4 sided tool with different edges on each side.

    The pic Sentari posted, has been on the market for ages (Years). Go to the tiling shops and you'll find them there

    Yip, nice tools, just chuck the black thing, supose to be able to scrape grout out between tiles with it.

    The blue blocks, very nice. And silicone do not stick to it :thumbup:

    But I still end up with silicone on everything, on table, glass cut tool, brackets, beer, cat...
