The Veritas Cabinet Scraper can be used to smooth glue lines or surfaces such as panels and table tops, or where there is tricky grain, without tear out, digs or gouges. The sole is longer and the handles have been placed further back and slightly lower than the No.80 on which it is based. This allows pressure to be applied directly in line with the cutting edge and prevents the blade from catching when the scraper runs off the end of the workpiece. The 70mm(2.3/4") wide blade has both cutting edges ground at 45° to permit preparation of two edges at once. The 80mm (3.3/16") x 85mm(3.3/8") sole is surface ground for accuracy. The body is made from ductile cast iron, overall length 290mm(11.1/2") weight approximately 740g(1lb.10oz).
