Carbide Burnishing Rod

Carbide Burnishing Rod

These carbide burnishing rods are made with 3/16" diameter carbide rods which extend approximately 1-3/8" from the handle. The handle is approximately 4-1/2" long and made from locally sourced hickory.  They are made by hand so each is unique.

This tool is intended to be used to raise a burr on high speed steel wood-lathe scrapers. It can also be used to raise a burr on card scrapers. The carbide rod is extremely hard and is necessary when dressing high speed steel scrapers.
