Veritas Variable Burnisher

by Veritas

Although filing and honing a cabinet scraper is relatively easy and the Veritas Variable Burnisher makes easy work of the problem of raising a burr.

The burnisher has carbide rods fixed at an angle in a brass hub. The dial on the face allows the angle to be set anywhere between 0 degree and 15 degree. You rotate the knurled brass knob to your chosen angle and then lock it into place with the brass thumbscrew.

The body of the burnisher is slotted so the angle is constantly maintained during use and, being made of plastic, it will not damage or scratch the scraper's face. Woodworkers used to using a traditional burnishing tool will also find this useful since it can be used to put different cutting characteristics on different edges of a scraper.

Each set includes a cabinet scraper (150 x 60mm) and full instructions.

    What one expects from Veritas.

    It does the job!

    We only recently found out about how good cabinet scrapers were at producing a very good finish on wood. Far better than sandpaper and much less dust. But no amount of videos and bits of equipment gave us the sharp burrs we needed. With a little practice this device does just that and now our table tops are far better. For us, it's great. They also include a fairly tough scraper, one that is thicker and stronger than the ones we had purchased before, and this does a very good job itself. So, all in all, pretty good.

    Useful tool for standardising the burr on your card scraper, fine it most useful to get the really fine burr for finishing. The Card that comes with the tool is a unexpected bonus, thank you
