I decided to make a card scraper out of a thinner material using a handsaw from a yard sale for $1. I can tell a big difference in the flex from the handsaw blade and the table saw blade. I’ll be using both for a bit and seeing which one I like better. Click here for the video on YouTube. And please subscribe.

Edit: I can’t embed video on here at the moment, I will keep trying.

My bet is on the handsaw steel. The flex is a + when scraping.

The flex is a plus and you will enjoy the lighter weight with extended use. I have a rather large assortment of scrapers made from yard sale hand saws for all different shapes.

They actually both have their pros and cons. The thicker one can really take some material off. The thinner one is easier to direct. I’ll be using both of them I believe in my shop. Thanks for taking the extra step and going to Youtube to watch the video.

Great improvement in my opinion. Here’s a link on how to really sharpen that bad boy.
