The ProPrep scraper by Spectrum Tools was designed to increase sharpening ease, while supporting a hard durable blade to deliver peak performance. Although blades are highly resistant to damage, they are not entirely damage-proof. Avoid striking nails or other protruding objects. Before any stripping project, countersink or remove all nails, screws and other metal objects protruding from the surface.
 

The below items were discontinued by the manufacturer in 2010.

This item will be available at DTEPStore soon!8/29/2013 Update:  We have finally found a suitable replacement for the Pro Prep Scraper (see right).  This NEW item is most similar to the Pro Prep Plus scraper (predecessor of the Original Pro Prep) as it has a quick release handle for changing/swapping/removal of blades (no screws required).  The handle is a bit thicker but easily gripped.  The head of the handle is angled about 12 degrees.  Currently this item is sold only as a kit which contains six double sided blades.  To learn more, make a purchase or read additional information about this similar item click here .

Excerpt from product use instructions...

Before starting your stroke, place the scraper flush with the surface and apply just enough pressure to start your stroke, then ease up slightly and pull the scraper through the paint. Allow the scraper to glide smoothly across the surface. Never apply excessive pressure to the extent where the scraper gouges the wood. Flushness and pulling in even, controlled strokes works best. Adjusting the scraping angle is necessary because thin coats of paint require less scraping angle than thick coats. A clean scraper does best. Some paints and coatings may be gummy and adhere to the blade. Frequently clean away paint residue from the blade's surface. Blade cleaning may be accomplished by using a second scraper to scrape away any paint residue. FINISH SANDING After stripping is complete, a little light sanding will give wood a smooth, professional-like finish. Use either a medium 60 or 80 grit sandpaper, or preferably a sanding sponge. Sanding sponges are easier to hold and easily conform to contoured surfaces and corners.
