I struggle with mine.  I’ve been trying and trying to get the edge rounded over correctly.  When I try to use it, the scraper tends to really bite hard and it take a great deal strength to push it or the thing just produces sawdust.  I’m trying it on pine and am wondering if the type of wood makes any difference.

I’ve been watching Pauls DVD on sharpening these and obviously he has a very attuned skill for for sharpening these but I cannot even come close to what he does.  Every other tool he demonstrates sharpening I can get results but these scrapers, boy is it frustrating.  I’ll have to buy another blade soon due to the amount of filing I’ve done and I havent even used it on a project yet cause I can’t get the thing to work  lol.
