Well, I use curved bowl rests with my scrapers every time I turn a bowl.

As for nose profiles, on the big ugly, I have a ) nose. Don't think I want a half round profile, but may get one ground that way eventually. Thing with the ) nose is it can be used both inside and outside, though not as nicely as a swept back scraper, but it also works well up on edge like the fluteless gouge that Doug Thompson makes. I shot a clip on using the big ugly yesterday, may have it up tomorrow or so. I launch one in the clip...

I launched a large bowl, had a catch at the transition with a lot of overhang. I succumbed to the vortex and bought a Oneway 24" Banjo and both inside and outside bowl tool rests. Used them for the first time today. absolutely the right thing to do now I can get close support all the way into the bottom and the the transition area, now I can go back to bowl turning with confidence with scrapper a and gouges.

I turned a couple of my scrapers into negative rake scrapers,  Just to take out tool marks and bumps.  Never had a catch again. Their only for very light work, but i saves lots of sanding time.    Smiley
