    Super gasket scraper

    Ok, first off, as a professional auto technician I've tried a bunch of different gasket scrapers and spining discs. Some are ok, some are good, and some I'm really not sure what they were thinking. But I've found THE best gasket scraper ever!!
    Its the Super Scraper:

    I really cuts those pesky paper gasket and sealers off quickly with a very light touch. Generally only pressure required is the weight of the tool itself. I've used it on water pump gasket, head gasket surfaces, oil pans, front covers, differential covers, and transmissions. Works well on cast iron and aluminum.
    I know it looks like it might gouge the heck out of aluminum but it doesn't (unless you really try to). It works a ton better than stupid razor blades.
    Anyone else using one of these yet?

    What are gaskets? Is that what RTV sealant makes?
    It's not how fast you can go. It's how fast you can get there.

    Looks like a nice tool, I hate using razor blades. Its tedious and it takes forever.

    Luckily the LSX engines don't have any paper gaskets to scrape, and damn near all of them are reuseable. So nice to just take things apart and put them back together without having to scrape off old gasket material

    As for other cars that still use paper gaskets...Hondas, Toyotas, ect...that looks like a perfect tool.
