    Here's a very simple and effective way I've devised of cutting squeegee rubbers, that I thought might interest everybody. I've been doing it this way for a month or so, and I find that the rubbers seem to work better and last that bit longer

    Nice one rugby
    Because my channels are cut and are quick release i take the channel out of the handle put the rubber in and lay on flat surface
    Then just use scraper blade against the edge of the channel and push down to cut through rubber exactly where i want it

    Yes, I used to do that, but this way you go straight onto the rubber, which will give a better cut with less pressure. I found pressing down with the scraper caused it to retract because of the pressure, and sometimes wanted to wobble.
