  • Scraper edge

    Can anyone tell me how to get the edge burr on a scraper. I caught the last seconds of a woodworking show just as guy was taking a hair off a table top with a scraper after it had been varnished and dryed in and you could not see where the hair had been. That would have to be handy. I have tried many times and can't make a burr. Any ideas?

    I have one of these and it works very well for wood turning scrapers . I would imagine it would work well for a small hand scraper as well. Perhaps you could check further into Lee Valley's site and see if they have a similar product dedicated to hand scrapers.

      Thanks Bill, I did find what I was looking for at that site. If anyone else wants one it is
      The price really went down when I realized I was looking at Canadian Dollars and changed it. Thanks again for your help and I got to figure out those smileys you use...

        they get the burr (which is a slight rollover of the edge of the metal) with a steel rod called a burnisher.

          Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

          I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

          I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
          They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

          The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
