At first I thought it was just another paint scraper even though it said razor scraper because it comes packaged with the blunt end of the razor exposed. There are no instructions so I just scrapped away until it broke and then when I pulled it out to replace it found the razor on the other side making scrapping a breeze. I felt like an idot but who knew. Now you know if you are like me.
Purchased this product because I needed to remove cutback adhesive from my concrete slab in order to install new tile and was very satisfied with the end result. Just poured scalding hot water over the adhesive and with a little elbow grease it took the cutback right off exposing the bare concrete.
Just remember to buy extra blade for those larger jobs.
this was really great for removing carpet glue from the concrete floor. it also removed any carpet pad that was left. the floor was still stained, but smooth as the rest of the concrete. I would definitely recommend it. I did the border of half of my living room in about 15 minutes. it's really easy to use. just be sure to unscrew it and flip the blade before and after using it, bc from the store, it comes with the blade side against the tool handle, so it needs to be flipped. hold it and an angle and use small scraping movements to get the glue up.
I bought this scraper to scrape my subfloors after removing tile in our entry way. I purchased this one because it was the cheapest and the area I needed to scrape was only 4x4. The quality of this scraper really disappointed me. The piece that holds the blade in place is plastic. Pressure is put on it when you scrape and the plastic breaks. I actually had to take one back because it was no longer usable. I only had about a 1x3 area left to do so I just grabbed another. I was able to finish the job, but the second scraper had cracks in it when I was done. Long story short, i would not recommend this scraper for scraping subfloors. Save yourself some heartache and buy the $30 one. Maybe this one would be OK for wallpaper?
We needed to scrape the exterior paint of our house. Our previous scraper just wasn't cutting it. I looked online for an affordable yet quality product and I found it. This makes the tedious task of scraping a lot easier!
Worked well - sharper than I expected. I would have preferred having a photo of the head on the package so I would know precisely what it looked like. (The protective wrap keeps you from seeing the business end of the tool)
Yes, these blades did a great job as I removed the old sheet vinyl flooring. Just scrape and turn your blade, scrape again, keep doing this and it helps to sharpen your blade or allows the blade to last a bit longer.
