Chitin scraps are used to repair drygore weaponry, and may be obtained by using a damaged chitin on an anvil, awarding 10 Smithing experience per damaged chitin. Each damaged chitin gives 21-40 chitin scraps depending on the player's Smithing level. More than 40 scraps can be obtained if your Smithing level is boosted higher (not a virtual level) than 99 with pulse cores (and maybe other boosting methods). For example at lvl 105 you get additional 3 scraps for 43 total. Damaged chitin is obtained as a 100% drop from all exiled kalphites except exiled kalphite workers.
100 scraps repair 1% of a mainhand weapon; thus 10,000 scraps are needed to repair the weapon at 0%. 50 scraps repair 1% of an off-hand weapon; thus 5,000 scraps are needed to repair the weapon at 0%. Alternatively, drygore weapons can be repaired for coins by Bob in Lumbridge or at the armour stand of a player-owned house.
Comparing using chitin scraps to an armour stand for repairing drygore weaponry: the Smithing level at which the cost is equal is 144; thus, using chitin is cheaper for level 143 Smithing and lower, and using an armour stand is cheaper for level 145 Smithing and higher.

The number of chitin scraps you receive from damaged chitin varies with your smithing level, using the following formula:
|Enter your Smithing level||name=skillstat_Smithing_level|type=int|value=1|range=60,99|sublist=calcchitin||name=scraps|type=output|
let( sm, skillstat_Smithing_level ) let( make, floor(21 + ((sm - 60) / 2)) ) let( scraps, "At a Smithing level of " + sm + ", you will make " + make + " scraps per piece of damaged chitin." )
