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)

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.

Useful I more than one way...

By
(Customer's Reviews)


While these make for very good card scrapers I also needed to repair a pick guard from a 70's Fender Musicmaster bass recently... it had done the usual cracking down by the last screw hole caused by pulling the jack out. I decided to reinforce the pick guard by routing a shallow cavity and epoxying a steel plate in place to stop it happening again in the future. I had a spare stew mac scraper lying around and it happened to be about the right size... seems to have worked great!

Only one of the 4 sides has anything resembling a burr. Be sure to understand how to sharpen and maintain a scraper before you purchase...

The mini oval came with a nice cutting edge and a fair amount of flexibility. I've been using it a lot.

I used one these to remove the lacquer and paint from one of my guitar necks. This was my first time using a scraper and it did the job quick and left the neck super smooth. I definitely recommend this.

Great quality scraper which is actually a lot stronger and sturdier than it appears in the display photos. Great for removing high spots while carving neck
