    We used to call them Vibro knives when I was doing screens at Citroen. Think they are just called oscillating knives now.

    I had a Jeep screen changed recently and the fitter just used a sharp snap-off blade knife. I guess being a flat screen, and having the frame off the Jeep, on the bench, made it easier doing it that way.

    If I want to refit a bonded screen I remove it like this with the long snap off blades and it doesn't have to be a flat screen either, if the screen is not for refitting I use the tool rodbuilder linked as you will crack a screen with the tool
