    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

    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.

    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
