Stuart Bray, owner of SB Solutions, is increasingly in demand for domestic tiling jobs around Cheshire.  Stuart decided he needed to buy a new Raimondi Pikus 130 wet saw to help him achieve a professional finish with his prestigious projects.  Stuart visited us in our Appleton warehouse and examined the various saws we offer.  He thought long and hard between the ZOE 130 and the Pikus 130 wet saw and decided the Pikus 130 was the machine for him.  Both are excellent machines which are capable of years of faithful service.  Jim Stott, our National Sales and Marketing Director offered to deliver the machine but after Jim had demonstrated the Pikus’s capabilities, Stuart was keen to start using the machines on site, so Jim helped load the machine into Stuart’s pick up!
