A Very Useful Small Scraper

I always have a few scrapers on the bench and could not imagine working without them. This little scraper is one of my favorites.

Just a few of it’s uses:

  • Cleaning up dried glue
  • Trimming binding flush with the top and sides
  • Shaping braces
  • Softening edges
  • Beveling the edges of the back reinforcement strip
  • Making pennies look big

The angled edge creates 2 small straight edges on one end of the scraper that are often perfect for getting into a tight place.  The pitch of the edge also makes beveling the edges of braces much easier.
