A paint scraper is a useful tool when it comes to paint removal. The five best paint scrapers reviewed and compared.

A paint scraper is useful tool when it comes to paint removal. Using paint remover means you need some kind of hand tool to help you remove the goo that paint strippers leave behind. They're also something you can't manage without if you're using a heat gun - as you need a scraper to remove the paint as you heat it up.

They're an affordable little gadget, the ones that cost a little more are the power scrapers and if you're only a DIY'er, a standard one will do the job. Generally they have a metal blade and wooden or synthetic handle and are shaped to allow you to get into all the nooks and crannies.

The five best paint scrapers are featured below. They're good value for money, well rated and the best selling scrapers overall.

Paint scraper, heavy duty. The silent paint remover

It will able remove either paint or varnish and can be used in conjunction with a heat gun or simply to remove all the goo left after a dose of paint removal gel has been layered over the paint. The steel has been hardened to give it an additional solidity and the handle length is long enough to make it convenient to work with. Great scraper, produces great results.

Bahco North America 650 2-edge Wood/paint Scraper 2

Last on the list of the best paint scrapers is this one - a slimline scraper that's built to last and like the others featured above - can be used for a little more than simply scraping paint and varnish from a variety of surfaces.

The blade does a great job or removing paint without wrecking the surface below and the length, weight and feel are all nicely balance and comfortable. The blades can be replaced as and when necessary thought they'll last fairly well as they're carbide steel, so tough enough to last well. All round decent little tool, priced right - though if you want a top all-rounder go for the one above.
