    When i brought my first basic kit @ £70 matey only gave me 2 blades and he told me to cut one down with a hack saw, so i did. i don't really like it so i have been looking at blades and there are some out there with curly ends. My question is are they worth the extra money?

    I do understand what cutting down blades with a hacksaw means though as you can cut down any size squeegee channel to whatever size you want. Then just need to cut the squeegee rubber down with a sharp metal glass scraper blade to fit the channel ;)
