Rob Cosman's Card Scraper Set
Card scrapers are the tool of choice when working with tear-out prone wood that will not respond well to a plane or when smoothing a finish between coats. While not typically an item used everyday, it is a tool that when you need it, nothing else will do. Our Card Scraper Set comes with two scraper blades (1 x thin blade and 1 x thick blade) and a storage pouch.
We make our scraper blades from the same high carbon tool steel we use for our saw blades. Our Thin Card Scraper is 6 inches (152mm) x 2-1/2 inches (63mm). The blade is .020 inches (5mm) thick, making for a very supple scraper. Our Thick Card Scraper is 6 inches (152mm) x 2-1/2 inches (63mm). The blade is .035 inches (.9mm) thick, making for a stiff scraper. The blades have been milled flat (better than +/- .001) and square on both of their long edges, and are ready for you to polish and turn a burr.
