  7. I aint that far behind you gray the only time I get bored is with the flaming handbag repairs ,oh and cleaning the no nails off diy jobs that they try themselves ,as for timpsons level one exam ,if we are all honest about it how many of us would accept it as a benchmark for hiring them ,would not mind betting most of us would use it as a starting point and then change what he has been tought

  12. 396 is not something I would use after trying it ,as for a contact adhesive that sticks plastic to plastic with no problem it has been invented and used fo a number of years before being discontinued as far as I know but do not know why as it was a very good one and would only ever use it for plastic if I could still get it
