How to Sharpen a Card Scraper

Duration: 4:43

George Vondriska gives you a brief overview on the easy woodworking process for how to sharpen a card scraper. Over time and after repeated use, the card scraper will no longer be straight. This is a problem that you can quickly fix by jointing the edges with a file and then reforming these edges with a metal burnishing tool that is slightly harder than the scraper.

    I have one of the Ulmia Brand tools for burnishing scrapers which seems to work pretty well. I suppose it was developed, as so may tools are, to make it less necessary to develop the hand skills that come with long practice. If you are familiar with ths tool do you have any comment on the results achived, one vs. the other?

      Thanks for the question. Sorry, but I have no experience with this tool, so I’m not able to offer you any guidance.

    Nice little tip round over the sharp edges, falls into the category “why didn’t I think of that”.
