Polishing seat

Post by Alpina Jim » Sat Jun 03, 2017 9:38 pm

Does anyone know of a small low level stool on wheels that could be used when polishing the lower parts of a car? I am thinking on the lines of the type fishermen use or similar but on castors. As I am now reaching the age of dodgy knees I am trying to find an easier way of maintaining my polishing regime with a bit less discomfort than sitting or kneeling on the floor.
If not then maybe I will have to have a go at building one.

Thanks in advance.
Jim

There are a fair few around, but for a fairly small outlay perhaps

Thanks for the replies gents. Luckily I have got a large professional kneeling pad for the do or die extra low bits.

I like the look of the mechanics type stools on wheels that Perry has posted and there is a Machine Mart not too far from me so I will go and take a look. I think the best bit about them is the tray underneath which has plenty of room for a tin of elbow grease and a can of beer or two. :)

Thanks again.
