    Hi all,

    Just wondering how many of you actually dog end your squeegees as I keep on getting annoyed when the rubber rides up the edge of the frame and leave a big missed patch around the edges. I have tried brass ends but they seem more awkward and sometimes end up scratching the edge of the frame or glass?

    Well I use a Unger one and they have teeth that grip into the rubber holding it in place either side of the handle, but it's at the ends you have 1/8th of a inch outside your chanel, when you go up into the corners the rubber just pops over the frame then leaves this big patch along, or do I need a harder rubber as I am using soft?? I saw someone on YouTube dog ending a Chanel so it supports the rubber in the top corner on the edges and wondered if it would be a good idea?
  4. Try pulex rubbers, I get on with those far better. I have abou 2/3mm stickin out at each end and that causes me no trouble. Could also just be a technique thing too.

    Give a range of rubbers a try n let us know how you get on :)
