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.

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

A must-have

By J. Carter from Manchester, UK
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, July 06, 2011

I bought the large rectangle and the mini concave/convex - I wish I'd bought them all! Don't know how I did without them, especially the small one. Brilliant for getting to the small places that would be very difficult to sand, and the finish is cleaner than sanding. Great product.

tiny but mighty

I purchased the mini oval scraper in preparation for an arched top for a solidbody electric. Much smaller than I thought it would be and very thin in thickness,... more of a touch up scraper for small detailed work or for finishing binding after paint. I recommend the larger scraper for heavy duty shaving especially when working with hardwoods.

I had no idea how useful and easy a scraper was to use, and now how essential it is in the tools I use everyday. You can spend a ton of time sanding or breeze through the task with a sharp scraper!! I use one every time I make a neck!!

Used these for final shaping of a laminated pickguard for restoration. Experimented first to get the feel. Very good and there are countless uses for the 3 different blades. Easy to sharpen.
