**NEW** AB2 - Accu-Burr™ Burnisher - With Handles

$141.00 AUD

This price is for the Accu-Burr™ rod with handles.
The Accu-Burr™ rod (patent pending) was designed and manufactured by Blackburn Tools and Union Manufacturing Company. The handles are designed and manufactured by HNT Gordon & Co. to fit the rod.

Specifications of the Accu-Burr™ rod from the manufacturer:
Never struggle to turn a burr on a card scraper again. The ACCU-BURR™ is simple, easy and repeatable. The heart of the patent pending AB2  is a 1/4" diameter rod, 4" long. With wider grooves, this is the model to use on thick scraper plane blades. It works on scrapers from 0.010" to 0.156" (5/32") thick, and on concave curved edges as small as 1/8" radius.  Because quality and precision matter greatly for the function of this tool, we use a premium American-made grade of carbide, sourced from and ground by Lakeshore Carbide, a leading carbide tooling manufacturer.

Easy to Use
Pick a groove and run it over the scraper. We have tested on HSS scrapers with a rockwell hardness of 65, on widths from 0.010" up to 0.156", on all kinds of crazy shapes. Just pick it up and go.

Pick the right burr for the Job
The three grooves machined into the carbide rod allow you to select a 5, 10 or 15 degree burr. So you can be confident that you get the burr you expect. You can select a coarse burr and use your scraper as a shaping tool, or a fine burr for finishing marquetry.

Any Scraper, Any Shape
Traditional burnishers require the scraper to be held low in a vice to provide stability and rigidity as the burr is turned. The ACCU-BURR™ is self centering allowing the scraper to sit high in the vice. This makes shaped scrapers like gooseneck scrapers as easy to turn a burr on as any other. Even very small scrapers that would be a challenge with other burnishers are simple to use with the The ACCU-BURR™ .

Half the work, Double the Burrs
The The ACCU-BURR™ turns a burr on both sides of your scraper at the same time. Just don't forget to prep both sides!

Handle Specifications: 
The length of one handle is 90mm, with a 1/4" hole that allows the Accu-Burr™ rod to accurately fit. We sell the handles as a pair to fit onto either side of the rod.
The ferrule is 11mm brass, and the wooden handle has a 14-16mm diameter.
They fit comfortably in your hand and the raised section fits nicely between your first and second finger. You can glue the Accu-Burr™ in with a few drops of super glue,  or the hole is a nice fit 20mm deep into the brass so you can just hold them on when being used.

Great accessory

This tool makes creating burrs on scrapers easy and consistent - provided the normal preparation is done (as it should be) a few quick strokes and the job is done. For me, the main benefit is getting a reproducible burr every time (plus it's quicker doing both sides at once). I'm fairly comfortable sharpening scrapers, so not sure it produces a significantly superior burr, but consistency and speed are the key. It particularly shines on curved scrapers. The handles are beautifully made and fit the carbide rod perfectly. A great addition to the workshop, highly recommended.
