    Those concertina ladders are terrifying

    I had a concertina one up to my loft and it was fine.

    Mixed reviews then. Your story is the kind of thing I'm concerned about, I like my fingers and cat.

    My sister bought me a lame for Christmas, but it's really blunt so I just went back to a razor blade between my fingers. Need to work on getting a bit more spring as I was getting a decent ear before, even with a score down the middle.

    Are you on a tight budget? I ended up wishing I had got someone in when I did my old lounge. Hired the proper sander but it was still a ball ache.

    Cool, maybe I'm overthinking it, telescopic / concertina would probably do the job and could probably be fixed to the wall, if not extending above the hatch and would allow for the insulated hatch. I'm going to get a quote for the whole job as was planning on doing most of the insulation/boarding, but the idea of handing it to someone does appeal!

    Folding all seem to attach to the back of the hatch, which will be a pre-made jobby w/50mm insulation, so not suitable I don't think. Concertina could work, but all look a bit crap/flimsy, and most telescopic seem to use the space behind the hatch, which I don't have. Maybe this crap diagram will explain the layout a bit better. Fixing to the wall so it extends above floor level like a normal staircase would be ideal.

    Has anyone come across a loft ladder (or just a ladder) that will fix on a wall and extend down from the loft space? I'm getting the loft hatch upgraded and its going to end up quite close to the end gable. To avoid taking up floor space and give me something to climb on right up to the loft floor level of the loft it make sense to me to hang it on the wall, but I can't find anything fitting that description.

    Android. Would a Bluetooth remote be more reliable, or cable even...?

    Used the new company Canon 6D today, all good, amazing TS-E 24mm lens. Using my phone as a remote though and I keep losing WiFi connection when I lock my phone. I think it's a problem with the phone settings rather than the camera, though I'm not sure where to look. Anyone come across this?
