Negative Rake Scraping Pictures
Aug 23rd, 2005 at 5:35pm
 
I used a negative rake scraper on a piece of Maple burl and posted pictures of front and back views to try and show how nice a surface was left. I'm not sure you can see the difference in the pictures but it does leave a very nice finish. I posted the pictures in the wrong order so all the information is with the last picture.

Thanks, Keith. The surface seems to be very smooth, and free of tearout.

Hey Keith, I take it that was with the scraper you made?  The surface looks pretty good from the photos.

Yes. Seems to work pretty good. You do have to keep it sharp, the edge doesn't last long. I had trouble getting a flat, smooth surface with the gouge, but the negative rake scraper smoothed and leveled the surface.
