    Hi guys
    Would anyone be able to lend or hire me a wall chaser for a couple of weeks. I may be able to collect it as I travel loads for work, and I can leave a deposit if needs be. I won't need it until i've stripped the walls and worked out what's going where and have bought the cable trunking though, but it would be nice to know that I can lay my hands on one when the time comes.

    They are only good for going through the top layer of plaster though, I need one that can cut an inch or so wide section out of the brick too.

    I used an Armeg channeling chisel, you can get them in various widths and they go in a SDS drill with rotary stop. It's also best if the drill locks the chuck in position too, or the chisel is difficult to control. I cut a channel about 2.5-3cm deep for the conduit I was using but it's extremely messy and will fill the room with dust and bits of brick. I bought a pro SDS drill for £190 and the chisel was £30

    You can also get the cutting disc type which start at £100 for a Ferm one from Screwfix or you hire them from the local hire shop.

    I wouldnt bother with the ones that use cutting discs if I were you, they throw up so much dust. Hire an SDS+ Drill where you can stop the rotation and hire a chisel for it too.

    Thats what I used and I had the three channels I needed done in about an hour.
