I just goet a heck of a deal on a sweetheart #80, $8. The only thing is that it has no blade. I have a number of scrapers, one that I have is pretty thick and I don’t like using it because it is too hard to flex so I figured I would use that unless anyone has any other ideas. What angle do you guys and gals bevel yours to?? I was planning on starting at about a 45 degree angle, and tuning just like any other scraper and going from there, any suggestions would be great. I have been using scrapers confidently for a long time but never like this. Thanks a bunch and look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for the link Jim! I’ve got a #80 that I’ve never bothered to master…this should help!

Were you able to find a blade?

I took a regular scraper that I had and cut it down, beveled it toa 45 degree angle and rolled a nice burr on it, but I have a lot of chatter. When I tuned the #80 itself I made sure that the surface that the scraper sits against is perfectly smooth and not being hung up on a casting ridge or anything, I wonder if the scraper I am using is just too thin?? I had a few and one of them was too thick to use and comfortably flex by hand so I thought it would be perfect for in the #80. Any suggestions would be great.
Thanks again
Nate

Sounds like the cut is too deep to me. I have a #80 also and it does the same thing if I have too deep of a cut. HTH.

I was just going to provide a couple of sources for replacement blades.

I would check with Brian Havens for advise if you do not get past it.
