Rare Dikeman Scraper Swivel Head Pat. 1906
Offering this rarely seen cabinet scraper marked "The Dikeman Mfg. Co. NORWALK CONN. PAT'D NOV 6 1906 OTHER PAT'S PENDING". This is the nicest of any of the scrapers that I've seen in this style. It feature a front cam action cap cover handle assembley that locks the cutter/blade in place very nice and tight. Also feature is a swival ball where the head meets the handle, just losen the wood handle and swival the head into any position you want, the blade can also be reversed. The front handle is very nice for controlling the cut/scrape. The wood handle is very good solid condition with a most of the rosewood color stain worn off. These scrapers were designed for use in building cabinets and other furniture, floors, bench tops etc., made to remove very little material in a tight areas like a enclosed corner. The blade on this one is a new pre-hardened tool steel blade with squared off corners (no razor edges). The blade is .055" thick x 3" x 4.5" long. The thickness of the blade is presicion ground and flat. In several years of collecting tools I've few others like this one by this maker, an excellent quality tool! Don't miss out!
