Re: Chair Devil/Scraper ()

MSC and other places sell "blue" 1095 spring steel which is what Paul uses. He said "blue" packaging strapping is the same thing. He cuts it with a Dremmel with cut-off wheel with the metal lubricated with wax along the cut line.

I have made scrapers from package strapping. It is not all 1095 and as a result I have had more of less success with strapping as a source. I will be buying an authentic piece of 1095.
