Joe. Here is a photograph of my gun barrel hook scraper. This tool is now old world gunsmith tool razor sharp on three sides each side is hollow ground and glass hard very easy to break. These scrapers where only used for the finest work because files work faster. this specialized scraper was given to me by an old school gunsmith more years back than I can remember also I have never seen another this size, talking of size the battery is there for size perspective.

To check I take a Marks A Lot and blacken the repaired hook and reassemble and flex the action a number of times and then check the contact. Pathetic.

I repaired my Flues in this fashion when I still had a lathe. Made a pin the same size as the hinge pin to hold the .003 shim while soldering. Soldered the shim and trimmed the edges with an exacto knife. You had to really look to tell it had been repaired and it never failed. I was very happy with the results.
