make scraper

I saw on a show once, a guy made cabinet scrapers from old hand saw's. I have a few old saw's that I want to try it on. I'm having a hard time ruining the old saw's. Has anyone ever tried it?

I did end up making these from an old very pitted hand saw.

Bigredc - those look great.
I made a scraper from one of those paint edgers. Works great as it already has a plastic handle to hold on to.

Does anyone know of any uses for old worn out 7-1/4" circular saw blades? I have a bunch I've been saving, because I figured the steel would be good for something, but I haven't found a use yet. Has anyone else?

hmm, somewhere in here (another thread) i believe Daren mentioned using them for scrapers or plane blades. they also make great shop decor when you hang them on the wall

Planer and jointer knives make excellent scrapers. These work well and can do large areas. They can be fitted to a saw kerf in a strip of wood on edge as a handle.

I didn't think of using old table saw for anything. They do seem to be the right thickness for a plane knife. I just threw out 2 or 3 that came with a saw I bought. I've been wanting to make a wooden plane like Daren does but I didn't want to have to buy the iron for it. Darn. I was proud of myself for actually throwing something out.

For those who use scrapers regularly, what do you need to put the edge / hook on it?

The catalogs seem to want to make it more complicated than what I suspect it is...to sell expensive tools.

I see these triangular burnishers that they say are the thing to use...but then again Lee Valley or Veritas or Lie-Nielsen or whoever want to charge $$$$$ for what amounts to a piece of HSS...please help. I hate paying big bucks for a tool I could find in the landfill...

I don't know what makes those things so
special that lee nelson sells. You can use the shaft of a big screw driver. You could make something like this out of wood and use a drill bit

You could always take those old sawblades, get some clockworks at a hobby shop, and make some shop clocks out of them.
