Detailed Description

Crucible Card Scraper

Card scrapers are usually sold as rectangles or squares. What has been lost to time is that the woodworker is supposed to shape the tool to his or her needs – much like the cutting edge of a jack plane or smoothing plane, so woodworkers of the last 50 or 60 years have found ways to make a rectangular scraper work. Most of us bow the tool with our thumbs to present a curved cutting edge to the wood, much like a cambered iron of a smoothing plane. This works, but at great expense to the thumbs. Many woodworkers with arthritis have had to give up on this tool entirely.

The Crucible Tools Card Scraper is based on Welch Chairmaker John Brown's design. It is gently curved along both edges and had a second accelerated curve at the corners. The tool works brilliantly on flat and curved surfaces and you don't need to bend the tool with your thumbs. As a bonus, woodworkers with arthritis are able to use this shape with great ease.

Features:
  • It is made from 1095 spring steel that has been hardened and tempered to a Rockwell (C) hardness of 48 to 51. This hardness makes it easy to turn a hook with a standard burnisher and the hook lasts plenty long.
  • The faces are polished and blued for rust-resistance.
  • The scraper is cut to shape using waterjet for precision and to preserve the hardness of the steel. Then the tool’s edges are hand ground and polished to make the tool easy to set up and maintain.
  • The scraper comes with a magnet, which acts as a heat sink while scraping, making the tool comfortable to use for long periods.
  • The tool is supplied with a heavy paper envelope that is perfect for storing the scraper, protecting its edges while it’s sitting in your tool chest or cabinet.
