One of our vendors has these locally and I got to hold one today.  I like it.  I think I will get a few to add in the mix.  My only gripe is they are a bit flimsy.  I doubt it would effect the print quality unless you are a newbie that can get even pressure across the squeegee.

I still think I'll get some(we don't print much manually).

I tried, he's very busy and this is the best I could do. That's why I put his website address on the post, maybe you email him to encourage him to join. I wouldn't call, that might be too imposing.

Tell me Frog, are you q printer and do you still print?

Do you give everybody a hard time or just me?

Now, you asked for a free part, and I'm happy to send it, but are you really going to use it and give an honest review?

Nah, we rarely go after folks one on one now that we have become the premier industry  forum. It's his loss.

Tell me Frog, are you printer and do you still print?

Yep. That's my day job, though after almost 30 years, I'm slowly winding down and packin' it in

Do you give everybody a hard time or just me?

Not everyone makes it as easy as you, LOL!

Now, you asked for a free part, and I'm happy to send it, but are you really going to use it and give an honest review?

Well, I was, but if you have doubts, I don't want you to feel uncomfortable about it.  I have other ways to do that!  ;D

EZ, while we encourage product promotion (in the right section) and we love folks finding us, we also hope that newbies also spend a little time here and read. That tends to answer many questions that would otherwise be asked repeatedly, and helps put a lot of things in perspective. In this case, you wouldn't need to read too many of my posts to see who I am, and how I behave. Most find it relatively pleasant and helpful.

Frog, I hope people will find me helpful and pleasant as well. Thanks for answering.

With that said, I look forward to your review. Your part will go out today USPO. 

Just for the fun of it, here is a picture of my prototype. Back then, it was just Ace Hardware and me. I put red and green tape on the support rods so I would know right from left. Like on a boat.

Maybe I should mention, I cut the top off a wood squeegee, took 2 flat brackets, bent them in a vice to the right angle, bolted them to the wood handle and covered them with bicycle hand grips.

Right away you're thinking, the rubber would be better, but not so, too much energy is absorbed into the rubber, so you have to work harder. Our plastic grip with the humpback design we added to the handgrip, fits the hand very comfortably at the same time not losing any of the force applied by the hands. 

No you know.

Veiwing the two pictures next to each other, it's easy to see, the mold maker did a good job of transferring the idea in to reality.

Hi MK162,

To answer your question about TheEZGrip's flexible, its because the part is made out of nylon, which is a plastic, which is a polymer. The process is called Plastic Injection Molding.

Nylon has you know is tough stuff and its surface repeals all types substances, both wet and dry. Therefore, it was the perfect material to use.

Nylon is flexible, but not so much so that it interferes with the holder's ability to do its job. As one prints, the part doesn't flex at all.

Additionally, if it wasn't for the flex, we would have a tough time keeping a blade in place, since blade thickness vary by 30/1000 to 40/1000, it helps for the blade slot to expand to hold thicker blades.

Yesterday I offered to give away 10 FREE TheEZGrips to the first 10 takers.

So far only 6 people have requested a part. THAT LEAVES 4 MORE FREE ONES TO GO.

Just mailed out USPO to the following cities:
Brooksville FL
Austin TX
Walnut Creek CA
Midland AL
Garfield NJ
Clovis CA

That's pretty much around the whole country except the North West. Doesn't anybody in Washington want a one?

I just ask in return you post a honest review after using it. I want people to hear first hand how well the squeegee works.

I guess I believe in TheEZGrip so much I'm staking my reputation on it.

I'd love to try one out, but being just a part time printer these days, I'll defer to the members who's livelihood depends on making use of the squeegee every day.

I'll be watching the posts and perhaps down the road I'll purchase one (or 2).

Good luck.
