[B][SIZE=“2”]So you find yourself on a job and you need a 0-degree handle, you can’t leave the job to go purchase one. Your doing a house with 20 sky lights.
It’s a 0-degree or you ladder it on the inside…what can you do ? Laddering will be much harder and and time consuming…Plus working around many obstacles inside with your ladder. You need a 0-degree squeegee handle…
Now if you have a basic brass or stainless squeegee handle, whether it be Ettore, Steccone, Unger, Pulex, you can reconfigure the handle to a 0-degree with a little in the field adjustment !
[SIZE=“2”]These first 3 photos are a basic squeegee handle that can be used ![/SIZE]
[SIZE=“2”]This is a standard Ettore squeegee with a 45 degree angle…[/SIZE]
[SIZE=“2”]These next four pictures show all you need to do to flatten your basic handle into a 0-degree. You can do it on the pavement but having a small perch like the wood I’m using helps to flatten the handle ![/SIZE]
[SIZE=“2”]Now you want to work it and not do it in one push…That way you won’t go to far and you’ll be able to manage the flattening. So push then check it, then push and check it again and keep up the process until you reach the perfect 0-degree configuration ! [/SIZE]
[SIZE=“2”]Your finished the 0-degree handle…Now sometime you can use a pair of pliers to help in the reconfiguration at this point if needed ! By making adjustment and to help adjust the separate brass plate that holds the channel on ! [/SIZE]
[SIZE=“2”]These next 3 photos are a comparison between the original 45 degree handle and the handle reconfigured/flatten from 45-degree to now a 0-degree ![/SIZE]
[SIZE=“2”]So this is the way you can have a 0-degree handle in the field if you need one. Now if your able to buy one, the Unger 0-degree works great and it has a adjustable swivel handle ! Now buying one is a better process. If though your stuck in the field and you need one…It can be had with a little jury-rigging ![/SIZE]
