Henry Eckert Hand Scrapers – France
Henry Eckert hand scrapers are made for us in France. They come in both rectangular and curved shapes. The thicknesses are from .25mm, .40mm, .60mm & .80mm catering for any scraper requirement. Timbers that tear out are common in Australia. Occurring mainly in patches, the tear out can be removed with a sharp hand scraper.
Hand scrapers are indispensable for smoothing flat wood surfaces, removing marks left by planing and routing, smoothing hollow and convex surfaces, cleaning glued joints and levelling uneven varnish coats.
Sharpened properly and burnished with an appropriate tool, they are capable of removing the finest shavings and leaving a smooth and precise surface finish. By varying the pressure, angle and curvature of the scraper, you can achieve superb results even against the grain, knotty & cross-grained wood, inlays, tear out prone timber, etc.
We also have a nice leather pouch to accommodate the scrapers. The Arno Burnisher is also a good partner for the scrapers.

Beer o’clock came early that day… More on the new tool soon. These guys have been pouring sand cast bronzes for many decades, there…
Our White Bronze Chisel/Flush Plane has been around us in various forms for around a year now. Our pattern maker is over it, too many changes! He uses Jelutong wood to do the initial shape, changes are easy if you are reducing the shape but not so easy to increase the shape. After we both…
