Although filing and honing a cabinet scraper is relatively easy it is the raising of a burr where problems seem to occur. The Veritas Variable Burnisher completely eliminates this problem and makes this an easy job. The burnisher has carbide rods fixed at an angle in a brass hub. The dial on the face allows the angle to be set anywhere between 0° and 15°. You rotate the knurled brass knob to your chosen angle and then lock it into place with the brass thumbscrew. The body of the burnisher is slotted so the angle is constantly maintained during use and, being made of plastic, it will not damage or scratch the scraper's face. Woodworkers used to using a traditional burnishing tool will also find this useful since it can be used to put different cutting characteristics on different edges of a scraper. This Veritas tool makes it possible for anyone to burnish a cabinet scraper to the desired angle perfectly every time. Each set includes a cabinet scraper (150 x 60mm) and full instructions.
