Hello fellows,one more time I would like to share with you a tip I use every time I need to use small scrapers for tight spots or small workpieces.

Small scrapers can be hot quickly and they are dificult to hold too.

So I develop a way to hold they using a door hinge.The leather pad doesn’t permit the scraper slip in use.The hinge improve the leverage too.

This kind of hinge works better

This knife blade can be a good scraper too

Two leather strips improve the hold power (avoid the blade slip)

Glued in place

Ready to work

The knife blade as a small scraper.

This burnisher form Lee Valley is perfect for small scrapers (any small drill bit can make the hook too).

Thanks for attention
