    Well, we think so :) ...Did an about-turn back to the yard to collect it!
    Anyone else time their mixes? Or just us being OCD?

    100.
    We’ve got a stop clock on our mixer but that’s a great idea. Must have replaced our timer a million times lol

    Nice to know guys!
    We've used digital kitchen timers, wind-up's, and even 'sticky fingered' our mobiles!
    For less than a fiver on eBay this fella does the business!

    Good to see that's the general opinion here... but, not everyone does!
    We've used loads of subbies for bigger jobs, some with years of experience, who have never bothered timing.

    ...They do when they work for us though!

    Can be mega costly. Silver is a nightmare for colour change if not timed

    There's loads on ebay :)
    Ours are about 5" high and chunky enough to take a few knocks.
    Sound investment for £4.80!!
