Hi all

I've just taken down curtain rails etc. and I need to patch the wallpaper.

Can anyone recommend a fine blade and holder. My craft knife, even with a new blade, is too thick. I don't want to use a razor blade as I don't have a holder. Can anyone think of something in between?

Thanks, in advance.
Neil

Neil, razor blade, make a little holder outta MDF or something. With MDF just spilt (slightly) with a chisel and bung the blade in. Dead easy. And don't cut yourself.

Hi all

Thank you very much.

I'll have to overcome my aversion to razor blades and buy a packet. :shock:

Thanks again.

They do say a tear/rip when glued is less noticeable than a cut......but i guess the paper has to be there in the first place :oops:

I always used to do that, but I saw that when the decorator did the same thing that he made a curved cit and it was very good.

Cheers
