Default Sharpening Wax Scrapers

Hey guys

Could anyone suggest a efficient way to sharpen plastic wax scrapers? I am tired of buying new ones.

Cheers!

Personally, I use a metal scraper made for spreading mud on drywall. I took a grinder to the corners as to not gouge my base and it works quite well. 3.49 at Menards or Lowes.

Or just take a file and detune the metal scraper corners. Works the same as Krug does with his grinder.

lay a file on its side on your bench and then stand it up like that against the wall, put ur scraper on the bench and rub it on the file

you really should just get a metal scraper though

If you have an edge tool with a file set it on 90 degrees and run it up and down the scraper a couple times. If the scraper is in a vice it's obviously easier to work with.
