    Hi Guys!
    Does anyone have any experience using the Sorbo Docket rubber trimmer, that allows you to repeatedly trim your rubber anywhere from 12 to 20 times? They go for about $320 to $350 in the US.
    Are they easy to use? Do they only work with Sorbo T style rubber, or can you use them with the normal rounded rubber? Do you have to use Sorbo's teflon coated razor blades to cut the rubber, or will ordinary blades do the trick?
    Any insight would be much appreciated.
    Cheers.

    I know the sorbo rubbers have 3-4 diffrent indents in the channel to put the rubber so the more you cut the higher you place the rubber in the channel, most other squeegees only have 1, so I would say they are only for sorbo.

    IMO they are far to over priced.

    I'm currently trying to make a cutter for rubbers, but I can't get past the cardboard and double-sided sticky tape yet. It looks good on paper!

    Anyone got a link? Are you talking about trimming the edge of the rubber off along the length?
