No more aching thumbs No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I received this last Christmas and hadn’t used it.
As anyone who has used a scraper over an extended period of time can attest your thumbs become painful.
This morning I needed to do a very small bit of scraping but I have a calcium growth that is interfering with the muscle in my thumb making using it for even small things very painful.
I opened a drawer and my scraper holder was sitting there and even had a scraper in it ready to go.
This thing works. I won’t be doing anymore scraping without it.
If you use a scaper a lot, you won’t go wrong buying one of these.

I bought this with some Christmas money. We scraped some old oak flooring with it.. worked really well.
Fits nice in the hands, doesn’t it!

Thanks Woody…. I had been wondering about this product. I do like to use my scaper but burned aching thumbs are no fun. I’ll have to get one for sure!

I like using a hand scraper, but my thumbs suffer, too. This looks like the ticket.

Thanks for the post. I will have to consider buying this tool.

How does it handle heat build up? Given its large surface area it looks like it will dissipate heat well.

I can verify your review. I have been using it for two years or so and I still love it. I have had spinal cord damage that effects my hands, eps. my right. This holder is just what the therapist ordered. Heat is not a problem, the casing seems to act as a heat sink.

I have thought about buying one before. Maybe I will.
