For more information on the #80 Scraper, see our beginner site Common Woodworking.
I posted a blog recently saying the Faithfull Bench Cabinet Scrapers were OK but discovered they are not quite OK. We discovered a serious flaw in the blade retention. Either the iron is too thin or the recess it fits into is too deep. Either way, the problem is that the blade slips upwards under pressure.
Anyway, five minutes of filing fixed the problem but I don’t think any tool should need a fix by the new owner before it can be used. Perhaps they will read this do what they should and send out thicker cutting irons to anyone that bought one. The problem is that for anyone as a novice bought this scraper they would think that the problem was them when it’s the manufacturer’s fault. I let Faithfull know of the problem and we will see if they fix it.
