This cabinet scraper is a very useful and versatile tool. Used in place of a much heavier belt sander, it can clean a dirty workbench top, remove dried glue and smooth a panel or tricky grain table top efficiently, leaving behind a surface free of tear-out, digs or gouges.
We have designed this tool with several improvements over what is usually known as the #80 cabinet scraper. To allow the user to apply pressure directly in line with the cutting edge and prevent the blade catching when the scraper runs off the end of the workpiece, the sole is longer and the handles have been placed further back and slightly lower than seen in other scrapers.
The blade is 2 3/4" wide with both edges ground at 45° so that the tool may have two cutting edges prepared at once, thus halving the number of sharpening sessions. The casting is shaped to protect both the upward-facing cutting edge and the user from accidental damage.
Made from ductile cast iron, the scraper will stand up to vigorous use. The sole is surface ground for accuracy. Two screws secure the blade, and the l knob is used to set blade camber.
The sole is 3 3/16" long, 3 3/8" wide. Overall length is 11 1/2". Weighs about 1 lb, 10 oz. Comes with detailed instructions.
Made in Canada.
