Shear Scrapers
Nov 20th, 2005 at 7:47am
 
I'm looking at buying one of the Kelton Shear Scrapers and am wondering if anyone here owns one or has used one. Any advice or comparison between this scraper and a regular round nosed scraper would be greatly appreciated. I'm going to be using it mainly for fine finishing of large bowls.

I haven't used one, but the first thing I do when I'm looking at a new tool is to see if Lyn Mangiameli has done a review of it.  Lyn has honestly reviewed a vast array of tool and does, I think, a great job.

Here's a link to his review of the Kelton Shear Scraper, in a PDF.

He seems impressed by its heft and ability.  Let us know if you get one and how you like it.

If you can wait a few weeks or so, Stuart Batty's new line of tools will be coming out, including his new negative rake scraper.  I saw the new handles last night and have seen the scraper previously, as has Keith Bundy and they are truly impressive.  You won't find a finer scraping tool on the market, or a heftier for that matter.

Chris,
  Any idea, will they have a hollowing set. I have still not gotten one, other than the two small sorby's.

Yesterday I bought the large Kelton Shear scraper.  I'll post a review on it later in the week.  Grin

Look forward to hearing about it Rosie, if you can get a pic of it in action that would be great too.
