I have a good supply of dedicated scrapers, but when I need to remove dried glue from glued up panels, I have a black plastic handled paint scraper that I normally use. If you don’t have one, I’m sure you seen them in the paint aisle at Lowes or HD, the scraper has a replaceable 4 edge cutter head. You use them till dull and then remove the screw and rotate the blade to a new edge. Well, it occurred to me one day than rather than rotate the cutter head, maybe I should just sharpen the dull edge. I had a flat file at hand, so I did. It worked great, and was far superior to the standard edge. It actually functions quite well as a real wood scraper. I haven’t rotated the cutter edge for a year or two. I just refile and slightly roll the edge with the file.
