Has anyone used a jewelry burnisher for their card scrapers?

You can get those for about $5, vs much more for a normal woodworking burnisher.

My guess is that it might not be hard enough since it’s designed for softer jewelry metal, but other than that guess I don’t know anything about jewelry burnishers.

You can get a Hock unhanded burnisher for $15 though and that’s not too bad. It has a nice polish on it and is very hard.

screwdriver shafts work as burnishers as well.

I tried a jewelry burnisher….put enough scratches in the burnisher to render it unusable for jewelry.
