Mid-week tool sneak peek no. 15

October 26, 2011

Benchcrafted makes more than vises and bench equipment. They also make simple tools that simply work. How many tool manufacturers can say that?

One such tool is the Skraper.

A hand held scraper is a great tool for a number of jobs. But the models on the market that first come to mind just don’t seem to cut it like they should. They’re to large to get into tight corners and the blades can dull too quickly when you need them the most. And unlike a card scraper, the leading edge of the Skraper is held at 90 degrees, greatly reducing the chance of grain tearing while removing glue.

Benchcrafted introduced their version of a scraper a few years ago, but it’s well worth taking a look at if you don’t own one.

* Solid carbide bar honed on three sides and ends.
* 8 razor sharp edges capable of taking fine shavings.
* Angled handle gives you more control in tight locations.
* Great for removing glue squeeze out, especially in corners.
* Can be used similar to a card scraper to refine small surfaces.

    Love my Skraper! I bought one at WIA in 2009 and there is not a project since that it hasn’t been used on. It excels as pulling up dried squeeze out in inside case corners. It actually makes shavings.
