Excellent, you buy it then send it to me and I'll trim mine, then return it in the post. We can do this every 6 months, Great money saving device for me! :lol:

Me.
I have taken a punt on one, though the one I initially saw was £20 but found one at £15.90. These ones are Euro12.95:cry: delivered.:lol:
As I said it is a punt will see what it is like in reality.

Will it work on the latest design of wipers though? Modern ones use a different shape to old style ones for the wiping bit of the blade IIRC.

Agree, if that is the case for my car at least it will be ok for the wife's car.

I think we need to add Danny’s little tool to the TT hire fleet and pass it round amongst the tight arsed old bikers that frequent the site

I’ve got a few wipers that could do with a trim Danny

If you think about it, wipers are usually changed before the wiping edge becomes damaged.

The hinge of rubber which allows the blade to change direction becomes w!$%ed out and produces a clonking noise as the wiper finishes its' down stroke and begins to rise. That hinge is above where the cutter could help out. Your'e still going to have that annoying repetitive noise no matter how well the wiping edge is dressed up.

A good 1/4" of the rubber more often as not splits away from the blade. No superficial dressing of the blade is going to help that out.

Modern wiper blades are buttons to buy on ebay and a 300% better than the crap we used to have on our cars 15-20 years ago.

Personally think it's a gimmick

The real good ones have twin blades so one is used to wipe each way.

Just trimmed the wipers on the wife's car and it appears to do a good job. 2 wipers out of 2.
Trimmed my car, drivers wiper complete and all is well. 3 out of 3.
Trimmed the fourth wiper and did not pay attention to something that is so easy and simple to do. f!$%ed it up.:blush:
Result dopy arse needs a new wiper blade.

Bought one of these on the strength of this thread and after using it I think it's a brilliant little gizmo!

The wife's car had really juddery wipers which left the screen streaky. Used the tool to recut the blades and gone is the awful juddery noise and they now clean the screen with no smearing.

£27 saved so far :smile:
