In the catalog, heavy 3/8" scrapers cost $75 each. I need a straight one and a curved one at least.
I thought I could make my own using 3/8 x 1" carbon steel bar stock. Heat treat to harden and of course sharpen more often than HSS. Is this viable? Or shoud I just bit the bullet and shell out the money for the factory made scrapers. Any success stories out there with home made scrapers?
