  1. Yes i have a formula tried and tested. One of the colleges i helped out in a few years back include it in the advanced 3 rd year coarse now
  2. Cheers mathew and that is the only one i have seen except the other 2 i have done.Where the secret is the distance between the ridge and the eaves coarse. Mine is well over a metre shorter between the top of the eyebrow bottom eaves coarse and the top ridge line.The distance from the fascia to the top ridge line on the main roof is 1.1 meters longer. How can one get the tiles to run in a straight line when you factor that in Example if to have 10 rows of tiles and and they are spaced at 300 mm gauges which would give you a 3 metre rafter length give or take, Try and get those 10 rows of tines to work at 2.5 metre rafter length in the middle of the roof then coming back to 3 metres the other end ??? in a straight line
  3. Nope look at the tile lines and see if you can spot the difference ??
