    The little red box contains four carbide tips.

    Hi Kryn, Guys,

    No ! I was actually rooting around in the scrap metal bin at an engineering works when I came across the yellow tube, that was when I discovered what it contained. I took it to the foreman, who said if its any use to you, keep it... So I did.

    I also got a couple of bits of square HSS, a little rust on them, but for free, I won't complain.

    Col: I haven't seen a ten bob note for a long time.
    Best Regards:
    BaronJ.

    You're lucky, a lot of places won't let you root around in their bins. Where I get my steel from, they have a bin out the back, and don't like me going in there either, something to do with liability.
    If I'm stupid enough to injure myself in their bin, I'd be pretty stuid to try to get some pay out??? All I ever see in there, is lumps of bent material or really short bits that aren't of much use.

    Hi fellas, thats a good find BaronJ. I have the same scraper. You may find the tip insert is not hss, mine are solid carbide, they're about $40 apiece.

    Hi Alby,
    Yes the scraper inserts are carbide, there are four in that little red box. Three of them are unused, the other has seemingly been used on one edge and put back in the box. I have no Idea about how much the scraper and tips are
    What I find surprising is that someone has thrown them away. Though I do sometimes come across brand new bits and pieces that have been sent to the scrapyard.

    The bits of HSS that I mentioned are a couple of lathe tools, about 3/4" square shank. They just fit into the toolpost on my Myford lathe. Of course they will need to be reground to be of any use.
    Best Regards:
    BaronJ.

    Hi Baron, I found similar pieces on Ebay, https://www.ebay.com/i/272791200415?rt=nc. $228.00 Australian, with free shipping for 5 pieces.
    Milling Tools Your handle is 66 pounds inc VAT
    Indexable Inserts The blades look like they're 38.28 pounds each.
    So it looks like a really good find around 260 pounds worth. If you find anymore, I'll have one thanks.

    Very lucky if you want to do scraping, its crazy how hard they are to find. Carbide is a lot better with cast iron I heard, HSS can work but it dulls quickly.

    I wonder what these are....

These were bored slightly under size, then scraped to a good fit using bearing blue as an indicator and the bearing scraper to remove the high spots.

    Babbitt and bronze plain bearings are still used in some industrial machines, so the scrapers are still available. I still have two, a medium sized hand forged (I think) one which belonged to my grandfather dating back to about the turn of last century, and a little Moore and Wright I bought about 1948, when the bigger one proved too unwieldy for scraping the 1 1/8 inch diameter big end bearings on twenties Austin 7 engines.

    Are they just a hardened steel scraper or do they have some carbide inserts?

    Do you mean the bearing scrapers? If so, mine are both high carbon tool steel. I presume HSS ones would have been available - don't remember hearing of carbide ones. You can see that the business end is curved upwards to make access to the bearing easy. There is a recess between the two cutting edges, which does not extend right to the tip. They are sharpened by holding the scraper flat on the sharpening stone so both cutting edges are sharpened at the same time. Mine need frequent touching up when used on anything harder than Babbitt.
