I bought an old Stanley 82 scraper some time ago, unfortunately it came, amongst other things with out a blade.

Can any one tell me what the blade looks like. If I can’t find one could one be fashioned from an old plane blade or blade cap.

Any advice or photos would be much appreciated.

Thanks

David

It’s just a flat piece of metal like a hand-scraper, the thickness of a handsawblade. It was made for scraping off labels so it has no need for anything fancy or ultra-thick. Any size you want to fit in there will work but the original was 1.5 deep x approx 3” long. Those paint-scraping blades they sell at ACE with the squarish hook shape on the end also fit.

Edit: You wanted pics – google stanley 82 scraper and hit images and there are a couple in the top row.

Found the blade you’re looking for at this site: http://www.antique-used-tools.com/stanley_parts.htm

But, at $27.96 I’m betting that’s more ham you paid for the plan. I can see blade making in your future—good luck!

Don W’s $6.00 blade from St. James Bay looks like a great alternative.

See my picture. This is the blade that came in my Stanley 82. I cannot find another anywhere. I just ordered a flat blade off Lee Valley.

I seem to recall it takes the same blade as a Stanley #80 does….

There were a couple different blade versions available for #82 produced in later years, most common is flat blade (from a #81). Have never seen replacement blade packs sold for #82, but here are photos from random auction sites with examples:

Dominic (Blackies Boy) at Tgiag tool works has some of the best card stock I have ever used. Unfortunately they have a note on the home page no orders taken in response to family health concerns. I honestly don’t know where I will turn when I need something in card stock, saw blades, and so many things.
