How do you attach a razor blade to a mini paint scrapers? 

This post shows the ten steps about how to install a razor blade inside the Mini Glass Scraper. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Mini Glass Scraper, locks the blade but applying pressure within itself and the single edge razor blade.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the standard paint scraper.

Step 3: Purchase the mini glass scraper.
Step 4: Remove the scraper from its packaging.
Step 5: Fig.3 shows the single paint scraper razor blades boxes, the next step is to remove one blade, notice how each blade has a thin piece of cardboard around the blade to protect your fingers.  Remove the cardboard carefully.

Step 6: In fig.4 below, remove the single razor 
Step 7: Fig.5 shows how to install it in the mini glass scraper.
Step 8: Start the blade from the left fig.5, and keep moving the blade until it fits the mini glass scraper completely as fig.6.

Step 10: Above in fig.7 there is a little button on the top part of the paint scraper, push the button down all the way until it snaps into place. This will freeze the blade from moving and the tool is ready to be used. When the blade is dull or when the job is finished, flip the paint scraper over and click the button again to free the razor blade. Dispose of the blade carefully, it is still sharp, but not sharp enough to do the job, but sharp enough to cut your fingers.

Tip: This is not a serious post, but it was fun to write and I hope you enjoy too. The Mini Glass Scraper was purchase from Harbor Freight Tools. I have used this tool several times and I like it.
