Hand Scraper

Recommended Posts

I have used a hand scraper (flat) for many years while making furniture and other 'large' projects. They are great for long strokes, but I have found them to be rather limited for small places such as ship models. Unless the curvature of your deck (or other surfaces) are just about right for the scraper, go at it. But if you have to make several 'adjustments' as you go along, you may be asking for more work than necessary.


Keeping a nice curl on a flat one requires some filing or sanding to get a good flat edge, and then a honing iron to put that little curl on the edge. Again, to do that on a curves scraper could be a bit more difficult.
