Scraper Blades

Steel scrapers leave an ultra-smooth surface. Here's how to use them in your shop...

For ultra-smooth wood surfaces. The first time you use a scraper blade, you'll discover why it's a favorite tool of traditional woodworkers.

Our versatile stainless steel scrapers leave wood surfaces ultra-smooth. They're also the best tools for smoothing plastic bindings, because they don't heat, soften or scratch the material the way sandpaper can. Occasional squaring and burnishing of the edges keeps them sharp and efficient (the Scraper Burnisher makes it easy). These scrapers are available with convex, straight and concave edges, for smoothing and fine-contouring wood surfaces on practically any instrument.

Large scrapers have a variety of contours for trimming bindings, neck profiling, fingerboard surfacing, archtop contouring and graduating, wood deburring, acoustic bridge shaping, and more. Supplied unburnished.

#0654 Rectangular2-1/2" x 6" x .028"(63.50mm x 152.40mm x 0.7mm)
#0628 Curved ends2" x 6" x .028"(50.80mm x 152.40mm x 0.7mm)
#0655 French curve3-1/8" x 5-1/8" x .028"(79.38mm x 130.17mm x 0.7mm)

Mini scrapers are for smoothing smaller areas with finer control. Among their many uses, the concave/convex version is handy for acoustic guitar bridge contouring, and the oval scraper makes quick work of spot-leveling drop-fill finish repairs. The rectangular version has rounded 1/8" and 3/32" notches for fast and easy acoustic bridge saddle crowning (a bonus inspired by an idea from Freddie Cisneros). Supplied unburnished.

#0627 Rectangular1-25/32" x 63/64" x .016"(45mm x 25mm x 0.4mm)

Our scraper blade kit includes all 6 scrapers (3 large, 3 mini) in a versatile money-saving set for the guitar shop.

Great scrapers!

By Dr. Steve Griffin from Fairhope, Alabama

I recently purchased the 3 large scraper blades, burnisher & instructional DVD. The quality is excellent as is the instruction. Saves a lot of sanding time

This scraper saved me a lot of time. Here I'm using it on a Mahogany overlay (Broken Headstock Repair) Also great for trimming binding!

Just ideal for these wee tricky bits on the neck and headstock. An excellent addition to my tool kit!

Simply Awesome!

I purchased all 3 mini scrapers and they are PERFECT for smoothing/finishing my violins. They are very thin, flexible and the edge stays sharp longer than other scrapers I've used in the past. Sandpaper is now obsolete in my mind! If you want a silky smooth surface then these scrapers are a must!

I recieved my scraper blades and as always Stew Mac is right on the ball. Very impressed at the timely shipping. I am refinishing a 1950's Kay Archtop and these scraper blades made my life so much easier! They save a lot of time and in my opinion do a much better job then sandpaper. Very pleased to have these wonderful tools.

easy and fast!

Mini Scrapers

By Jim I. from Arizona
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, August 18, 2011

I use these mini scrapers for carving guitars. They are unique in the sense that they are much easier to control in tighter areas. The three unique shapes are unlimited.

great mini-scrapers!

By Michael Kolb from Sheridan, OR
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, July 13, 2011

I've usually used taped-off razor blades to level drop-fills (and still do) but these new mini-scraper blades are a great alternative, particularly in areas with curves.

The added bonus, however, is the cutout on the #0627 scraper... it's perfect for adjusting and shaping the tops of saddles.

Good Stuff

Use them all the time.
