The pro is they are good tools if you can master them. The con is you will never find out if you don't try one :D

@Tuffers you are obviously using the liquidator wrong then and/or not having enough slip as I think they are a brilliant bit of kit even with the soft rubber it comes with.

 

I've tried using it with my knuckles close to the glass, knuckles far away from the glass as well. The tiny bit that's squared off seems to come out of the clip too. I'll keep on trying it, but not a fan of it yet.

Sorry guys, I've given mine a good go now but decided to retire it last week. I got it to the point where I could use it, but I still much prefer a normal straight channel, I don't even use my modded ettores any more. I really wanted to like this, but its not for me I'm afraid.

 

For those of you that are struggling with the rubber, I found that the hard rubber (unger) performs much much better. Soft just slopped about all over the place when I used it.

That's why they made them so no detailing is needed? I think if you can use a normal channel and modify it to your needs and are able to cut down on detailing, then you are skillful ;)

 

Back at ya Smurfy boy :P

Yes and a tshirt

If you don't wear the tshirt you're not allowed to use the channels

I can get it 90% of the time but then I have a mad day like today where it was shite.

Reverted back to mod channel & perfect. It's like golf to me. 90% of the time I'm crap but then I hit some good shots & think I've got it then go crap again.

What are the chances of being electrocuted by a liquidator Davey?

That’s until his bits got mangled in the photocopy scanner arm I'm thinking. I've also never tried to pull my bare arse out of a sheet of broken glass before have you? :D

the moerman channel tips bed in after about a week of solid use . by solid i mean all day and every day use .in that first week you need to use a stronger hand than what you might expect,to avoid it skipping . then the tips lose there "schtick" and by losing it the acute tip angle is reduced . this means that theres less chance of the squeegee skipping on the glass

 

more im reading about folk moaning that the moermans not working for them,more im thinking theyre giving up inside the bed-in period . after bed in is complete you can use a very light hand to get good results .

 

another sign that bed in is complete is that the channel coating turns from a solid black to a grey-silver as it wears away with constant use . if you only use the squeegee occasionally the channel will stay solid black-

 

bed in wont ever happen with occasional use

Yep that what I was trying to say @boarcity as good woman is already broken in.

 

Unless it's like throwing a banana up Oxford Street then can be a wee bit disappointing :D

I have used them fine since brand new with no "bedding in" as boarcity calls it

Unless i am doing something different i don't understand what is causing people problems
