    Default Diy razor scraper

    well i have decided to make a magfloat style razor scraper

    what i am doing is i have some extra acrylic laying around so i cut it and made a triangle out of 3 pieces cut a slot in one edge then drilled and tapped for 2 adjustment screws to adjust the blade

    I cut the magnets out of a magfloat 125g and glued inside the scraper

    I then glued some felt to the bottom and 2 more pices of acrylic to the sides to trap air in so it will float

    yes the magnet will be glued inside of the triangel and ends caped on final version

    the blade is just slid into a slot cut through the acrylic and the screw is to adjust how much preasure is applied to the blade from top down

    I will show better pics with the final version I have also added another magnet to keep the blade from falling out if conection through the glass is lost
