Cabinet Scrapers, Burnishers, Scraper Holders

Scrapers, despite the ubiquitous sandpaper, continue to be a useful means of delicately removing shavings, old layers of paint, lacquer or polish, and even ingrained dirt. Admittedly, the scraper is a tool that not everybody masters at the first attempt. It is not expensive and it is hallowed by tradition, but it does require practice and an understanding of how it works. How to sharpen scrapers?

On purchase a scraper is not usually ready for use, but simply a piece of sheet steel, which can only fulfil its task when it has been given a fine burr. If you find a burr on a scraper you buy, it is no more than an accidental byproduct of the metal-cutting process.

VERITAS Variable Burnisher

The VERITAS variable burnisher makes the process of putting a hook on a cabinet scrapers easy and perfectly repeatable. All you have to do is set the hook angle you want and burnish the clamped scraper. A precision-ground tungsten carbide rod in the brass angle setting knob is held at exactly the right angle as you burnisch. CAUTION: Because the scraper edge is extremly sharp, the body is designed to be used on the pull stroke. It is not necessary to appply great pressure on the scraper while burnishing, repeated passes will roll the edge of the scraper much more consistently and with minimal effort. Instructions

VERITAS Scraper Holder

Anyone who works with scrapers a lot will know that there is an unpleasant side-effect, burnt fingers from the heat generated by the friction. Help is to hand with this scraper grip, which means you don't touch the scraper itself. It also allows you to decide in advance how much curvature to work with. For rectangular scrapers with 150 mm side (+ - 3 mm). The Crown and Clifton scrapers are too small for this grip, we recommend to use Eberle or Two Cherries scrapers. How ist works!
