Scraper Blades

About This Item

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 Rectangular 2-1/2" x 6" x .028"
(63.50mm x 152.40mm x 0.7mm)
#0628 Curved ends 2" x 6" x .028"
(50.80mm x 152.40mm x 0.7mm)
#0655 French curve 3-1/8" 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.

#0625 Concave/convex 1-31/32" x 1-17/64" x .016"
(50mm x 32mm x 0.4mm)
#0626 Oval 1-25/32" x 1-3/16" x .008"
(45mm x 30mm x 0.2mm)
#0627 Rectangular 1-25/32" x 63/64" x .016"
(45mm x 25mm x 0.4mm)


SAVE when you buy the Set of 6! Includes 3 large, 3 mini size scrapers.

Sharpening scrapers for guitar work: two simple jigs

Link Van Cleave is a sharp guy! He taught tool sharpening at the 2013 Northwoods Seminar. That was a class on professional techniques, but Link also gave us this foolproof Trade Secret for making your favorite scraper super-sharp.

Scraping, not sanding, to prepare wood for finishing

Dan Erlewine shows why he uses scraper blades instead of sandpaper for the final smoothing before the finish goes on a guitar.

I have no other scraper to compare it to but so far it's been of very much help. After some instructional videos online, I was able to make a nice edge on it.

A Must-have For Binders

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This tool is indispensable if you want to do binding. Be sure to get the burnishing tool as well, or the scraper is useless. They don't come with a scraping edge.

Binding made easier

Sanding bindings is messy and cumbersome. The scrapers make a much neater,if slower, job and achieve a more consistent finish.
