    Thanks might give it a go as each time I buy a scraper the blade doesn't remove and soap it just leaves lines from edge of scraper if that makes sense and I brought blades for it but still same thing

    iv used these and at least one of my crew is still using one. what i found bad with that scraper was the blade carrier is made of a soft plastic, its not rock steady strong - the slide jams up easily too

    twice I've bought one of
    these and both were faulty! The plastic slot where the blade sits must've been slightly bowed as when scraping, the middle part of the blade didn't touch the glass just the ends make contact. As I said this was the case on two that I bought so won't be buying another.

    Those Stanlys do the job tench0771 :thumbsup:
