So I'm interested in this, as sometimes, and only sometimes, I will get some marks while surfacing a board. Not always, and mostly just on the end farthest from X,0. You can't even really feel them and they sand off, but, What exactly is a "card scraper"?
Edit - the marks are more like "ripples" if I had to describe them, not really dark or burn marks, but even that isn't the best description, but it's all I come up with a the moment.
