Richard Lever Bar Scraper - High-Carbon Tempered Steel - Combination Tool - 10-in L is rated
Rated 5 out of
Versatile and high quality
I love this flat bar. It has so many uses on the job. As a carpenter and renovator I use this tool probably the most of all the hand tools I carry in my tool belt. Plus it's made by Richard's in Canada, and is of extraordinary quality. The one I currently own I've probably had for 6+ years and that's only because the last one I passed onto my apprentice.

Perfect for getting into tight spaces.
I've had these bars for many years. (10-15).
All of the features have been amazing at one point or another. I'm a carpenter so some of the uses are pretty awesome.
My main uses have been fitting tight sheets of ply together, either when I make a mistake of my helper does.
Sometimes breaking things apart I can get a nail bar in between two surfaces, and the glazing bar helps hold that distance as I work down the materials.
I've used it underneath sheet good panels and give it a horizontal twist to bring it up to an exact elevation.
Once in a while when raised access flooring panels are STUCK, this tool is amazing because you can send a screw through the "open" end of the bar, into the tile and use it for leverage.
Scraping form ply or misc plywood edges are another awesome use. Run the scraper side parallel to the ground of the outside veneer of plywood, vioila. Super smooth in second for rough rough.
Occasionally use them to help we hang steel doors...
This tool is one I will always carry in my bags. For what it can do, and the price, you can not go wrong.
