I have been experimenting with scratch stocks and I wonder whether spring steal that is .032″ thick is adequate. I see that the blank Hock scratch stock blades are .05″. That is a pretty big difference. (I know — everyone says all you have to do is find old card scrapers or old, dead, useless saws from garbage cans behind flee markets to recover steal from. But I have already sacrificed my one extra scraper and there are very few used tools for sale where I live. The few junkers that exist in antique and junk sores are priced as if they were collectables. So I am considering buying some steal online. Advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
