I found this link. It shows how to sharpen it and how to use it.

I would guess you tune the plane the same way as a regular plane smooth the bottom on sandpaper and sharpen the blade.

I just happened to have gotten one last Tuesday. It had a square edge like a cabinet scraper. I put a 45% on the edge via a 4” stationary sander. Then honed it with 400 grit wet and dry sandpaper, and finally put a bur on it. Works great.

Happy – Send that scraper to me and I’ll take a look at it. They’re pretty tough tools to figure out, so it may take some time before I get back to you…

:-)

Seriously, scrapers are pushed away from the user, typically with the top of the blade angled away from the user as well. Blade is burnished / a hook is raised that does the cutting action. Lots of material out there, to include manuals for Stanley #80s that tell it all (like bigike pointed to above). When getting started, it’s best to practice on hardwoods; pine doesn’t scrape worth a crap… If you’ve got a scrap of maple, for example, play around with it; that’ll teach you more in a short amount of time than many other woods. Good luck, and Enjoy!
