A very useful and versatile tool, it can clean a dirty workbench top, remove dried glue, smooth a panel or a tabletop with a difficult grain, leaving behind a surface free of tear-out, digs or gouges. Veritas designed this tool with several improvements over the traditional #80 cabinet scraper in mind.
To allow the user to apply pressure directly in line with the cutting edge (preventing the blade from catching when the scraper runs off the workpiece), the sole is longer and the handles have been placed further back and slightly lower.
The blade is 2-3/4" (70mm) wide, with both edges ground at 45° so that the tool may have two cutting edges prepared at once, thus halving the amount of time you spend sharpening between uses.
Made from ductile cast iron, this scraper will stand up to robust use. The sole is surface ground for accuracy. Two screws secure the blade and the integral thumbscrew is used to set the blade camber. Dimensions - sole length: 3-3/16" (81mm), sole width: 3-3/8" (85mm), overall length: 11-1/2" (292mm). Weighs approximately 750g. Patent pending.
