After being advised on these very helpful boards that another cactus of mine had scale, I began to worry.

When I bought this one I was told it got frost bite (the darker spots) so I assumed that's what everything on it was. Now I'm afraid that it's also scale.

Thoughts? I did try scrapping a few pieces and it did come off but there are some pretty hard ones

Hello and welcome! This doesn't look like scale at all to me.
In some Native languages the term for plants translates to "those who take care of us."
