    Get a new stanly blade.
    Iine the blade up square over the rubber just put it on, then give it light hit on the back blade with the handle of a screw driver.

    CHOP IT!!. cut it on a piece of wood.:)

    Or use a pair of scissors properly. one slice not multiple chops and you'll be fine.

    Seriously.

    Aslong as you chop from the back of the blade and don't screw it up you're fine.
    Using the stanley blade H Man, well, what if you line it up and decide to line up differently but you've already marked the rubber, could ruin it.
    I don't understand.lol

    All you have to do is work out where you whant to cut then hit the back of the blade.
    You then have a clean cut.

    Also if you need to just take a small piece off the squeegee rubber this would do it better, then using a pair of Scissors.

    But evey one has there way of doing things. :)
     
  4. lol, this is not rocket science guys, sit the rubber on a hard surface and slice it with a stanley blade

    Yes I agree it’s not rocket science if you already know.

    This was put up for the people that did not know or how to cut the squeegee rubber.

    It might only be squeegee rubber but you don’t want to be throwing it away because you are not cutting it in the correct way.

    Tried scissors, knives, sSwear word!er blades could never get a straight clean cut.

    Especially when you need to cut small pieces off the ends to square it up.

    With Stanley blades you can.
