    A little late, but if you have any similar corners, try cutting 90% of the way through at similar intervals - you'll hopefully get enough flex to fit the curve without having loads of individual pieces.

    Thanks - this is mega helpful, I really appreciate it. Looks like more research is needed, but it seems like the right route to go down for me at the moment.

    Aye, basically, I'm currently going from small job to small job as a technician. I'm pretty sure I don't want to do domestic, more interested in industrial, with an eye on getting a full time job and hopefully working in a team. Being a sole trader or running a business isn't for me (at the moment) but I figure if I do the course I have options at least looking forward - fitting in small jobs between my normal technician work for example.

    I know I'll probably need some experience to get a job but I figured the course was a quicker way in. I guess I just feel slightly wary about starting an apprenticeship in my 30s, especially when I'm trying to increase my earnings.

    Sparky heads, a question: how quick/easy do you reckon it’d be to get a job after doing the city and guilds 2365? Decided to just put some savings into doing the course, but need to figure out if I can afford to jump straight into it, or should I wait to start the course, expecting that getting a job afterwards may take some time. I’m based in Leeds.

    Need me some car tools.
    E sockets, big and small torque wrenches, trolley jack, axle stands.
    Cheaply as possible. I can borrow all the above currently, but moving forward it’s obviously not practical to always be borrowing.
    Second hand? Brands to go for/avoid?

    If that's the case, hit the compounds primarily, hit accessory stuff for upper body aesthetics and fun, and make sure you get some cardio in.

    Also, focus on just getting it done in the gym - try and minimise rest times and just get a good sweat on. I see lots of people spending more time sitting around than actually lifting. Dumbell complexes can be good for this - lots of different bits get hit, works up a good sweat and you'll be knackered.

    I always like the Javorek complexes (not with 25kg dumbells, mind).

    And curls, do some bloody curls. Ignore the circlejerk (looking at you reddit) about how they're pointless.

    Couple dark room prints from last night, hp5 on my Mju i, photos of the prints don’t do them justice (IMHO). Really enjoying the process.
