Reply To: Thickness of card scrapers


Sven-Olof, I know your comment is about scraping (and very helpful!), but have you tried a Bailey style plane with the cap iron pushed very, very close to the cutting edge and light shavings? Also, at those knots, try applying a quick wipe of denatured alcohol a moment before planing. Those knots may plane if approached from two directions with a sort of circular motion so that the apex of circle is tangent to that impossible to cross line where the grain reverses. Planing may very well be impossible, but sometimes those tricks make the difference for me.
