Shear scraping is a recently enhanced method of woodturning which relies on the presentation of the scraper at a shear angle. This technique offers some significant advantages over conventional scrapers :
- At the optimum angle of 45º, the slicing action is safer and produces a superior finish
- Sanding is often unnecessary
- The risk of the cutter digging-in is virtually eliminated
The internal shear scraper (826H) features a round cutter whilst the external shear scraper (827H) has a square cutter. These cutters are fully interchangeable so anyone having the internal shear scraper (826H) can fit the external cutter (827C) and vice versa.
The unique 3/4" semi-circular shank allows the cutter to be used 45º to achieve shear scraping.
