Alec profile scraper hack, literally.

Recommended Posts

I have used some of the profile scrapers made by Shimomura Alec, extensively.

Sometimes though, adjacent profiles will prevent access to confined areas.   




My workaround was to order a second R-V6 and separate the individual profiles with a cut off wheel mounted to my Dremel.




Each stalk can then be put in a X-Zacto handle.






For my North American compatriots, if interested, HobbyZone USA carries many of the Alec modeling tools:




Worth a look I think.
