    My no.80 cabinet scraper after sharpening just won’t scrape, it’s very hard to push and digs into the wood. I’m suspecting I’ve created a very large burr and will redo the lot but I don’t even have the screw or knob engaged and still it’s impossible to scrape with it.

    The reason for this post is what if it happens again are the cabinet scrapers metal weaker than your normal card scraper. I go through the same process like I do with all my scrapers for some reason this one just won’t behave. All y card scrapers work just fine, I’m just wondering trying not to repeat myself if I should apply a little less pressure when turning the burr.

    i also had this problem at the beginning your turned edge/burr would want to be severely turned over for it to behave like this i find a couple of strokes at about 10 deg off 90 works well try not to overwork it and just feel for that edge .i also found it very important to load the blade correctly it must sit dead tight to the surface while tightening the retaining bar

    Strange how I missed that video well definitely some good pointers here as soon as I get a chance I will redo that burr. I’m more inclined to think when I installed the blade I didn’t press it hard against the back something I just leanred watching tha video so that could be my issue. Everything else I’ve done the same if it doesn’t fix my problem I will just re turn that burr.

    Thaks for the response guys
