This tool turns scrapers into cutting tools. Turners who are used to using scrapers with a grinder burr will be amazed at the difference a smooth edge-hook can make. After grinding a scraper, you just deburr the flat face and roll a hook onto the edge. The pressure you use determines the size of the hook.
Two 25.4mm long carbide burnishing rods are supplied. One is ground at 10° for burnishing scrapers with bevels of 70° or 75°. Now included is a second rod ground at 5° to burnish 75° to 80° bevel angles.
Since the burnisher (clamped in a vise or screwed to a lathe stand) lets you use your entire body for leverage, you can even put hooks on HSS scrapers, something not possible with any other burnisher.
Easy to use, includes full instructions. Designed for use with either full-size or miniature tools. Made of aluminum, steel and carbide. 127mm long by 67mm wide.
