Marples Irwin M2451 Cabinet Scraper 6in – good scraper

As described for looks and performance.

A sturdy product and does need a sharpen on some of the edges but you would expect that.

Excellent product, does what it is designed for. Came well in the time frame. I would recommend this seller.

  • Cabinet scraper
  • Keep the edges clean for a great fine finish
  • good scraper

Does exactly what i needed it to do.

A cabinet scraper, only has one use. . Its for scraping vanish etc off of quality wood and getting the grain back up.

  • Made from high carbon steel
  • Polished to give a smooth finish

Wxcellent product which saves many hours and sheets of sandpaper. Sharpens really well and is most comfortable to use. A must for my longbow building. Accurately described and well prices make this a must for any woodworker.

It’s so effective and easy to use.

Excellent scraper that will last a lifetime with a few sharpens.

Good value for money, excellent product.

Good scrapers, however comes blunt from the factory.

Little disappointing that it was tarnished in the packet but it does not change the edge, good scraper.

Picture shows stanley insignia but same not on item. Essentially just a piece of metal.

Very nice item very good service.

Nice bit of kit held a sharp edge well and gave me a good surface finish on a cabinet i made.

Its essentially just a sheet of steel mine came with a little bit of surface rust i wasnt too happy with but the steel seems good and with a bot of practice gives a good result.

Bit blemished on the steel but also effective.

My last scraper was only 5 inches which i find a bit small so i bought this one. It is a nice size but on arrival it was tarnished and the edge was poorly cut. Had to true up on diamond stone (a lot) before applying burnisher. It then worked okay but it was apparent my old scraper took and held a better edge. Not sure the larger size compensates for the shortcomings.

How did i ever get get a fine finish without one of these?. Takes off the same amount of material as a well tuned japanese hand plane, without the set up.

Excellent, just the job for wood & plastics.

Works and is valuable even if you already have all the others.

This certainly does what it ‘says on the tin’, made a good job of the project i wanted it for.

Having been a cabinet maker in past i like to have correct tools and this was just the tool for the job. Nicely made by a respected maker would advise anyone to buy this item.

I recommend it to anyone who needs to strip wood – it is better than any chemical on stains, lacquer, burns.
