Card Scraper Honing Jig

By: Logan Wittmer
This Jig Helps you get your Card Scraper perfectly Square.

08 13 01 Getting a 90° edge on a card scraper has always given me a problem. So, I decided to build a jig to help me create a square edge.

Diamond Plate Holder. The jig incorporates a plywood base that cradles a diamond lapping plate. A pair of cleats keep the plate from sliding. To hold the scraper square, I attached a fence that’s covered with laminate. To hold the card scraper, I built a clamp using plywood and a couple of bolts and knobs. And a handle provides a secure grip. 08 13 04 In Use. Using the jig is straightforward. I place a card scraper into the clamp and tighten down the knob to secure it. Then, I can hold the clamp against the fence as I hone the edge using back and forth movements. The laminate reduces friction and wear. After a few swipes, the scraper is ready for burnishing.
