    I always drag mine at a 45 degree angle, I always find the other way you risk the chance of bunching the vinyl if laying it down wet

    I actually push most of the time – with just the occasional pull! Don’t tell me after all these years I’ve been doing it wrong!!!

    Question 2 is – what to do with a felt squeegee. These produce less friction – so what methods are favoured use with these 😛

    I put the felt squeegee in the bin, tape a piece of velvet to a nylon squeegee and then I pull the squeegee across the vinyl.
    Does that answer your question Phill ?

    him and that bloody lump of velvet 😉 are you gonna show us a pic mate

    Right enough of this!, I use the felt squeegee in exactly the same way as the plastic. Only NOT on graphics with tape on, kind of defeats the purpose of the felt squeegee
