Default Burnisher that works well

Very recently I took the leap into card scrapers, bought a couple and also a Crown Burnisher. It didn't work worth a hoot. The very next day I was watching an online video presentation about sharpening card scrapers and the presenter said that the Crown Burnishers were useless and did not work very well. He recommended the Veritas Variable Burnisher. So I ordered one on line and had a chance to try it out last night on my card scrapers and then use them on a small project. I was very impressed with the results. I am no expert on card scrapers by any stretch but they worked for me last night and now I am convinced. Alot of it had to do with the Veritas Burnisher so I would recommend this to anyone who is frustrated with their present burnisher.

A good, hard, screw driver shaft works pretty good too... and most already own one.

I don't bother with a burnisher.
Clamp a mill bastard file in a vise, and run the card edge over it.

Like George said, a screwdriver shaft works good.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
