I bought a cabinet scraper a few years ago and have really enjoyed using it. I was able to make small shavings with it right out of the box, but of course it dulled after a while. I looked at various tutorials online to learn how to sharpen it and tried to use the same techniques. I didn’t have a burnisher so I tried a variety of stand-ins: screw driver, drill bit, router bit.
I was able to sharpen my scraper enough to still use it, but I could never get a good burr on it. I could only make very small shavings and most of the time it only produced saw dust.
I knew I wanted to get a real burnisher but it was never a high priority. Well, recently I put the Crown 20260 burnisher along with some other woodworking items on my Amazon wish list and wouldn’t you know some one bought it for me.
I tried it out the same day I got it and was amazed at the results. After flattening the scraper and giving it a few swipes with the burnisher, I was getting nice shavings. No more saw dust!
I am definitely glad I finally got a real burnisher and would recommend this to anyone that is having problems sharpening their cabinet scraper.
