I have the good fortune of living less than a mile from an end mill manufacturing company, so on the way home from work a while ago I stopped in and asked if they had any broken end mills. They looked at me a little strangely, but pulled out 3 or 4 broken carbide end mills and gave them to me for free. So I turned a few handles for card scraper burnishers. I gave one to my brother, kept on for myself, and have the third one up for grabs here. It will be free of charge, just pay shipping. However, I want this to go to someone who does not have one but that does have scrapers. The first time I used a carbide burnisher over an old HSS shank it was surprising the difference. So anyway, PM if you want it. Here is what it looks like (1/4” shank, walnut handle, copper ferrule)

You have made a very nice burnisher! I went to my local engine mechanic and he gave me some old engine valves and they work very well as a burnisher.

Very thoughtful of you Brian. Jim: never thought of valves, but, that’s a good idea

Received the other day, and tried it out last night. Brings up a beautiful burr with very little effort.
Thanks again Brian, gotta love this place.

Have your say...
