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.

Small Scraper

By MED from Delray, FL
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, June 08, 2012

Just received the small mini scraper now offered. This is just what the doctor ordered. Great for small areas, binding work, and fingerboard cleaning. A good product.

Excellent scraper kit

By Marcio Costa from Brasil
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, May 03, 2012

Except for the little oval one, which feels light and flimsy, the kit is superb. With the proper edge (attained with the burnisher also from StewMac), you can easily and swiftly scrape (or microplane) an entire hollow body guitar. I used my kit for carving sometimes. The scrapers are well sized and balanced, except for the little oval one, which appears to be cut from a tomato soup can. Excellent for the price.

New Favorite tool

I have been using the large scraper, with curved ends to level the finish on a solid body electric...this is now my new favorite finishing tool!

These are just the right size for those picky little areas. Extremely good quality steel, sharpen in a jiffy.

Great little scrapers for tight places around the heel and for cleaning wood bindings without digging into the top or back

They are just right

By Andruski from Spain
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, March 07, 2012

I¦ve bought scrapers many different places, but these are the best. Just the right hardness etc. And they are even set up when they arrive. Just a touch with the burnisher and off you go scraping.

By DT from New-brunswick
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, February 17, 2012

the mini rectangle is good when you need to scrape off some staind on the binding, it's small and will remove any paint or staind that ran on the the surface of the binding

ideal tool
