This scraper sharpening jig works really well and will cost you a couple of bucks at most.
The burnisher is a 1/4inch HSS lathe bit from harbor freight. It’s under $5 for a set of bits and I had this one left over from making an Oland tool.
The kerfs are at 90, 85 and 80 degrees to the bit for 5 and 10 degree hooks. If I do another, I might make it wider and add one more kerf at 75 degrees, though this works just fine. Finally, I added a kerf to hold the file at 90 degrees to the face.
This jig is easy to make, quick to use, and the HSS bit costs less than even the least expensive burnishers. Make yourself one this weekend.
