  • Scraper

    A friend of mine gave me a scraper. It did not come with an edge. Does anyone know how or where I can find info on preparing it. Thanks. Bob

      That's a very comprehensive and informative site, Marcel - thanks for posting it . However, Bob, if you want to cheat you could always invest in a Veritas Adjustable Burnisher. I've got one of these and it's very good.

        Hi,

        Although I'm a very big LeeValley/Veritas fan and my wife will attest to them having more than their fair share of my paychecks, I'm not so happy with this item that I own myself.
        Maybe it's the way I use it that's the problem, and not the tool itself
        The burnisher I prefer is this one: http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.a...310,41070&ap=1.
        But if you just want to try the scraper, file it square and use a drill bit shank to burnish it; just make sure it's smooth, not gouged or scratched, and use one of a size big enough that it won't bend (drill it into the end of a foam brush handle, don't pull it out, remove from chuck: instant burnisher handle )

        However lonepine, you still need to prepare the surface of the scraper before burnishing it. The surfaces need to be flatened and squared first. If you do not have sharpening stones, you could look into this item http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.a...072,43089&ap=1 It's a file jointer/edger, that one I'm happy with

            He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

            Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

            I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
