I'm scraping a lot of wainscoting and would like to have a blade shaped to match the bead. I've looked online and haven't found one that's even close. I know I could theoretically make one myself but I don't think I have the tools or skill to do it. Does anyone know a place to buy one or someone I could pay to make a few?

Thanks, I'll take a look at that. I did manage to make a rough version with an old paint scraper. But it didn't work well enough and was too likely to damage the wood. By the way - thanks for all your advice on paint scraping with a steamer - it was very helpful.
