    Thought I would post this in here, as its mainly for the trad crowd.

    I always found with scrapers they rust, and trying to get blade out to replace was a pain.

    You drop them from height then they jam up etc.

    Anyway I cam across these a few years ago, I am still using the same one, i do have around 10 in stock though HA

    You get a cap, and to replace the normal scraper blade its just turning that black screw.

    It fits in a green unger bucket in a belt and the ninja one (same i know)

    PS I know it says mini, but they are roughly the same size as normal metal ones.

    Ha!

    I use something similar, I used to use a chunky metal scrapper but like you say can easly be dropped and easly rusts up(the whole thing)

    Now I use a small flourescent green plastic scrapper obvis the blade is metal but I buy a pack of 10 blades.

    Dont ever drop it, or never forget to leave at a job as its bright green

    (prev chunky metal scrappers could easly leave at a job on the sil or on the side somewhere..)

    I had the small scrapers but they take ages on large panes.. I like the 4 inch plastic scraper from unger for about £8 and 10 blades are about £8 too.. But they don't rust..

    I found a similar scraper on eBay for £2.50 odds inc postage, will try find it
