About the only scraping i have done myself is babbited bearings in high speed gear units. It was only for final fitting to get full contact across the bearing, usually only to take out a slight taper after the bearing was bored.

I have seen older mechanics here hand scrape machine ways and tables during rebuilds it definately is an art.
