Binding Scraper
This a 1” Red Devil paint scraper that
will function exceptionally well as a
binding scraper when properly
sharpened.
I bind my guitars with wood but I am sure this scraper will work equally as well
with plastic. Most of the time it is necessary to hold the tool at a slight angle and
also test to see if you are working with the grain.  No Chatter.
I sharpen mine using my 1” belt
sander. A file or sanding block will also
work. Work the outside edge to a 45
degree angle as straight across as
possible.
To prevent gouging the area near the
surface to be scraped it is necessary
to knock off the corners off the blade.
Last, using a fine diamond file gently
remove the burr on the inside of the
blade. The resulting cutting edge will
be razor sharp. I have found that the
working angle of the tools is very
effective. This may be the most useful
tool in my shop.
