"This item was purchased to tackle some wallpaper that had had many coats of emulsion and it performed brilliantly. You have to be slightly careful as the blades are very sharp and will gouge the plaster if too much pressure is applied, but once a little time has been spent using it, it becomes less of a problem The only problem I have had has been that 1 of the screws holding the blade has partially stripped the thread, due to the soft material used for the component. (replaceable nuts would be better)."
"The picture only shows one screw but it actually has three and this proves more sturdy. Very good for the price. Got to be careful as it will not only strip the paper but if you get the wrong angle will take the plaster as well."
"What did I ever do without one? Great tool - help with even the most stubborn paper - also rips through ceiling tiles - blades are very sharp (= deep cuts!) and can dig into old / soft plaster - great for removing / flattening old filler and rawlplugs!"
"I bought this item from screwfix and when it arrived I was shocked to see that it did not contain the blue case and spare blades. Althought I have been refunded the cost, screwfix really should change the picture."
"Great if you're doing light work, but will soon break on heavy stuff. The blade retaining plate bends which in turn bends the blade creating a gouger rather than a scraper! Look for a model with 2 blade retaining screws, these tend to be better quality."
