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.

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

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.

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

This may be the first negative review I have ever written about a S M product. These scraper blades are way too thin to even get an edge on. I was expecting the same thick type scraper that I purchased from SM in the 70's, When the only shape available was the 3"X5" rectangular one.It was so impressive that I cut pieces of it off to reshape in to shapes for the scraping that I was doing at the time. The concept of this set of blades is good (different shapes for all applications) but inferior material is used. I wound up cutting a curved piece of glass to suffice. Don't waste your money on these cheap scrapers.

Still getting my head around how to sharpen these properly but with practice I am sure I will get it. Perfect for scraping bindings when properly sharpened.
