Nice Tool

By Marcio Costa from Brasil
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, June 11, 2012

This simple tool makes scraping worth the while, because with sharp scrapers, one can achieve faster and cleaner results than those achieved by sanding or power sanding. The only con is the price, but you're not paying for the sharpening knowledge.

Well worth the money! Works great!

Sharpening a scraper was very tricky for me at first. It took a while for me to really get the hang of it but this little tool really helped out. I've tried many different tools and methods and this burnisher is one of the fastest and easiest to use. I've tried a traditional burnisher, an adjustable burnisher, the jig, and of course this one. For large rectangular scrapers I prefer the adjustable burnisher. For curved and small scrapers this one is by far the best. All in all this tool is very portable and it can handle all types of scrapers easily so it's definitely a good investment and I highly recommend it.

I've used scrapers for forever, and have run the gamut of sharpening them with screwdrivers, burnishers, jigs....this is by far the easiest, quickest and LEAST EXPENSIVE way to go! Flawless results in no time!

This is one of my favorite luthier type gadgets. A time saver for sure and does a fine job on a good scraper.

Scraper Burnisher and mini-DVD

The scraper is great but the video is very poor, the quality is very low.

Great Item!

The burnisher is well made, and does a great job of putting an edge on the scrapers! I wouldn't want to do any scraping without it!

Surprisingly good

It looks simple, maybe you could make your own from a drill bit and scrap wood. But why bother, it's cheap and does an excellent job. Really easy to use and gives a far better edge than the screwdriver I used to ruin. The video is a bit superfluous though, the printed instruction does suffice.

For all those who start with the mystery of getting a scraper sharp! Great tool, works all the time, durable steel, worth ten times the money. Love It!!

I often question my sanity when spending money on stuff like this - after all, 'it's just a stick with a nail through it'. But after trying it I found that I like it...a LOT!

Perfect scrapers

This tool is amazing. It does exactly what it is meant to do, and it does it easily and quickly. Foolproof results -- perfect scrapers.
