    That guy is a genius, thats what I call an invention, works perfectly, he just has to put good velcro on his pad instead of cable ties, love the no detailing, I have to sort out my channels and mod them.

    I had a quick try the other day. the pad is short to let the channel go along the edge, the ties don't bother the glass or the pad (I already use that idea). It is, I think a wash'n'wipe in one go, but you can wash only or blade only. It's difficult to get the right angle of the pad, mine wasn't quite right, but it did work. I want it to work on a Wagtail!.

    Who is Joe? :rolleyes:

    Looks a good invention to me for one pass tool. I also see he has cut his channel the opposite way to how most would do it too.

    Is this the same Jim now flogging that magic mix that leaves yer windows shiny?
