    hey guys got a question that I want to ask , for some reason i get small wave marks in the middle of the window I'm using a 14 inch wagtail I changed the rubber I know it's prop my technique but is there a video on how to stop doing it ? Only when I fan it happens 1 every 4 windows and most of the big windows say 1200 x 1200 mm it's driving me insane

    Ok thinking that where fanning that the angle of the squeegee (handle to the squeegee channel) has is more vertical and the middle has less pressure.
    Just try squeegeeing and lift angle up see if you get small wavy marks when you do this.

    Is the squeegee rubber held in with a screw in the middle?
    If you want you could also try adjusting the angle of handle to the squeegee channel like in video below.
    Will make it easier to use.

    You will never know unless you look at them.:);)
