    Paterson sqeegee question-shin tool.

    Hi,

    Is the Paterson Squeegee a unique design or did anyone else copy the same sort of shape/form as the Paterson?I assume you have to get the Paterson squeegee to get the exact same shape you want?

    As far as ive seen no other squeegee looks the same.

    Thanks

    Lee

    I'm not sure if there is another...but you can find the Paterson easily, so might as well just get the real deal. Or you could sculpt it yourself. I ordered one about a month ago:

    Not too expensive, and better than a resin copy, IMO.

    Lee, you have 3 methods of obtaining that part bruv..

    Buy an original and modify, buy Bobamaker (I believe cast from original) or make your own from Alan's (WoF's) templates...

    Re: Paterson sqeegee question-shin tool.

    be aware that there re 2 versions of the Patrson
    one has metal pins, one has plastic
    you want the metal pins

    And don't forget that you have to grind off and fill the bottom most "nub" for the correct shape.

    Yea, I got one with metal pins. I haven't had a chance to start on it yet since I am currently involved in too many projects. Hopefully I'm not off topic, but does anyone know if the molded copies have the spring action? Or is it one piece?

    Bobamaker is the only one I know of who has done a "working" resin copy.
    And that was for the Jeremy Bulloch suit. Not sure if he's doing runs of them or not.

    Re: Paterson sqeegee question-shin tool.

    Well,ive got some news on this.I bought these the other day on Ebay for 15 shipped($25??)The seller stated it as a Paterson stir stick and Jessops squeegee.I was thinking that the seller made a mistake and that it was a Paterson squeegee but when i received them yesterday,it is acutally a Jessops version.However,it is indentical to a Paterson and i have already made my Sonic Beam weapon from it,aswell as the my Anti Security blade section from lower handle which was cut off.It also has the metal pins that some other guys in the thread mentioned.

    I wasnt aware that anyone else made thesebut i think i got a good deal.Ill post pics tommorow of my Shin Tools.

    jessops is an online store, but they mark the item as paterson.

    perhaps they repackage these

    Re: Paterson sqeegee question-shin tool.

    Also,there was no mention of Paterson or a Patent number on the squeegee itself
