At the 2 minute mark in this video the guy uses some kind of scrapper thing- what is it and where does one get one?

Its a card scraper. Come in square blanks, can make custom profiles. Amazon, rockler, woodcraft sell for not much money. I suggest a burnisher as well to form the hook needed to “scrape”.

Add the above:
Single cut mill file, diamond stone or ceramic.
They work where other methods fail. Wouldn’t be without ‘em.

To add to that, I have never bought one. I make my own from those cheap Asian made hand saws you find at Dollar store or Flea Markets.
Cut the metal out to any shape you want. I can get quite a few different shapes and sizes as needed.

To add even more, I’d recommend a scraper holder. I got mine for around $10-$15 at Woodcraft, and it’s completely worth it. If you have a lot of scraping to do, your thumbs get tired real quick…well, at least mine did.

the holder makes it worth it, the scraper gets hot too, and your thumbs get tired.

Dallas, How do you cut the blanks from a saw blade. The blade is too hard for a hacksaw or metal snips. I know a plasma cutter would work.

Have your say...
