#80 Cabinet Scraper Setup?
I added a Veritas cabinet scraper to my arsenal. Out of the box, it performed decent - but produced sawdust rather than wispy thin shavings. No problem, they all need some blade honing, right?
I went to work on my diamond stones and flattened the back of the blade. Course/fine/extra-fine, then a final polish on the leather strop. Next, I fine tuned the bevel - same process. Finally, I used a burnishing tool and created a burr. Now my scraper performs worse than it did out of the box. It's producing nice shavings, but the surface is left a bit rough rather than glass smooth.
This is my first time attempting this, so this is just SWAG (Scientific Wild-Ass Guess), but I think I have too much of a burr. It's difficult to describe, but the burr feels like it's too thick? Maybe I rounded over the edge of the bevel too far?
Looking for some guidance here.
