"Hi Justin Thanks so much for sending the replacement blades for my Proscraper. I’ve been working on the exterior of my Victorian recently and it’s a wonderful tool for prepping the woodwork for repainting. I’d misplaced it and had been working with my other plain steel scrapers for a while. Dealing with the old, super hard paint meant constantly sharpening the blades with a file. Collecting the chips on plastic for disposal was no joy either. The Proscraper hooked up to my vacuum took care of both problems. The products that your company carry are uniquely geared to keeping historic windows in service and appreciated by their owners. Your hardware should give a lifetime of service. Thanks for your help and expertise in the past and I wish you the best in the years ahead. Russ Powell Island Housewrights Corp. Proscraper Vacuum Scraper with Tungsten Carbide Blade"
