>>> If you get a square scraper blank with no bevel, then you need a 36 grit belt sander.

I don't know about "need", although 36 grit sounds like it would be quick.

I ground these from square Thompson scraper blanks (and one skew chisel) using the 80 grit CBN and I don't remember it being a chore.

I ground the profile first then the bevel using an angled tool rest. (Some day I'm gonna save up and buy a Robo rest.)
