Unhandled 3/8" x 5" Solid High Carbon Steel Cabinet Scraper Burnisher HRC 62-64
A cabinet scraper is a simple, old-world tool that has many uses in the modern woodshop. A well-tuned cabinet scraper can remove glue, tame tearout, refining a finish, or put a glass-smooth finish on wood. Creating a proper cabinet scraper edge (referred to as a hook or burr) is an important skill to learn and requires a dedicated burnisher. Burnishers are tools with hard, polished rods that form or “draw out” the steel from the edge that is used to form the thin hook or cutting edge. Taytools unhandled burnishing rods are cost effective as no handle is included. These unhandled Taytools burnishers are available in either hardened polished high carbon steel or polished carbide. Hardened steel burnishers are perfectly capable of making good hooks, but carbide requires less pressure and effort and can turn hooks on harder scrapers. Hardened high carbon steel burnishers have a hardness of HRC 62-64. Carbide burnishers are much harder with hardness at HRC 92-94. Each rod comes with a vinyl tip. A wood handle can easily be added later. Size is 3/8 diameter by 5" long.
