Quote:knee pads???? only amateurs kneel

As ZSilvia says.. how do you trowel? I have some kneepads and a kneeling pad. and after 30 years. I ain't no amateur (no really )

I prefer Vulpes PPE
Are you going to start selling 'lavishly upholstered behinds' in the shop?

Ah, kneepads, the tried and tested way to hold that really sharp stone securely in place on one's kneecap :face-approve:

Not if you don't kneel.
i always squat - i find it helps a cleaner finish

spent some time in the field is all - happy to share the experience with those that havent foxy
If I mistakenly squat for more than 30 seconds they have to call an ambulance :face-crying:

-suppose some people's knees aren't designed for it
To post back on-thread.... Apparently sufferers are predisposed to get it, twas news to me! Though the type of work, or in my case injury, can bring it on early (by years). Employers probably should have a policy on exposure to vibration injury (and not just the use of pneumatic equipment, as mattocking through graveled surfaces or brick and concrete is an issue) within their risk assessment. If you suspect you have CTS go ask your Doc to book the nerve conducting test (thing). Reatively painless, and they can tell you at what state the nerve compresion is at. If you let it ride for too long it can result in permanent nerve damage and muscle wastage in your hands.

very good points to make and it is possible to accommodate the hazard in a risk assessment and therefore working practices
