Card Scraper Problems

Don Emmerling
I have a set of 3 card scrapers from Crown Tools (Sheffield) that I purchased recently. I have used card scrapers in the past with no problem. My problem is that I cannot raise a bur on the scraper. I lost my burnisher some time ago and am using a screw driver to raise a bur. After repeated attempts I cannot even raise the suggestion of a bur. This should be an easy task but somehow it is just not working. Any suggestions on what to use as a burnisher. I had a nice bur on these scrappers before so I know it is not the metal.
Regards,
Don
