Make a Dedicated Negative-Rake Shear Scraper
By: RickTurns
July 05, 2018 · 21,791 views

I've always been a fan of shear scraping. It seems to be the only way to get rid of torn grain, which I always have. So I have made a dedicated tool for shear scraping. Never one to take the simple route, I also added a negative-rake to the shear scraper. It only takes a bar of steel, an inexpensive HSS cutter, and a couple of inexpensive tools which you may already have. As a big bonus, it's easy to do and only takes an hour or two to make. Here are some links that might be useful if you want to make your own dedicated negative-rake shear scraper: HSS cutters: https://bit.ly/2zpEfVd (Woo

An old wood turning technique commonly referred to as 'shear scraping' is a great way to finish the surface of a piece right before sanding. This video is the first in a series of videos that will focus on basic wood turning techniques and methods. Future videos may include a more in depth look at these types of wood turning techniques. I hope you will enjoy these informational videos. Thank you and stay safe at all times.

Scraping with Gouges
By: Brian Havens
April 15, 2016 · 4,910 views

Although dedicated scraping tools have plenty of uses and have a definite place in my arsenal, scraping is not limited to just 'scrapers'. Any cutting tool has the potential to be used as a scraper, and gouges stand out as the cutting tool I most often scrape with. Choosing to use a cutting tool for scraping could have several motives. Perhaps there is no scraper available that can get safely into the spot that needs scraping. Or perhaps one is on a budget an cannot afford a plethora of scrapers. Or, as is often the case, I already have the gouge in my hand and it can do the job. Woods: - Japanese Tree Lilac - Honduran Mahogany - Kamani Tools: - 1/2' 40/40 bowl gouge - 1/2' swept back (finishing) bowl gouge

Negative Rake Scraping
By: Brian Havens
November 13, 2015 · 56,131 views

Negative Rake Scrapers are low risk tools that are great for refining the final shape of your work. And although the finish they leave on the work is not quite as clean as shear scraping, it is often clean enough to start sanding with 150 or 180 grit. They are low risk because, unlike when conventional scraping, they are 'neutral' in the sense that very little energy transfers from the work to the tool, so little that they can even be used safely directly into end grain on face work! There is a downside, however, which is that the burr on a negative rake scraper is fragile and does not last long. No need to fret, though, because there are several things that we can do to mitigate this downside. Cover tool: Negative Rake Bowl Scraper (reground from an Ashley Iles scraper.) Woods: - Black Walnut - Ash (The green bowl from the Sep. President's Challenge) - Hard Maple (spindle) - Soft Maple (end-grain hollowing)

 

Shear Scraping
By: Brian Havens
October 02, 2015 · 19,076 views

See how, after trying with our best efforts with cutting tools and Conventional Scraping, Shear Scraping can discipline the most recalcitrant grain. It can leave a smooth, tear-out free finish on spalted wood, knots, and end-grain blowing out on side grain. Last but not least, it safely cleans up end grain in face work, making it ideal for refining the outside of bowl to minimize the need for sanding. Cover Tool: Two-way 'Shear' Scraper (reshaped from an Ashley Iles square end scraper) Woods: Spalted European Birch; Camphor; Honduran Mahogany; Eastern Black Walnut; Japanese Tree Lilac Apologies in advanced for some camera difficulties. Some shots are blurry and my overhead had some linseed oil in the lens case, making it look a little cloudy.

 

(Conventional) Scraping
By: Brian Havens
August 28, 2015 · 31,207 views

At one end of the spectrum, scrapers can take feather—even powder-like—shavings, making them excellent tools for refining the shape and surface of our work. On the other end of the spectrum, they can be used for heavy hollowing, especially in situations where we have reached the limit of our cutting tools. Like a relief pitcher, scrapers can pick up and finish a job where the cutting tools left off. Being able to be effective with scrapers, however, requires a clear understanding of the difference between cutting and scraping. After explaining the difference between cutting and scraping, we take a look at how to use and setup a scraper. Then we'll see how scrapers interact with the various grain orientations. Cover tool: Ashley Iles Heavy Duty Bowl Scraper Woods: Camphor; Curly Silver Maple

Lyle on Sheer Scraping with Bowl Gouge for Woodturning
By: Lyle Jamieson
October 03, 2012 · 22,419 views

Lyle Jamieson uses a bowl gouge to scrape on the steep angle on the outside of the bowl. This technique takes very fine 'angel hair' shavings and leaves the outside of the bowl so that it can be usually sanded with 320 grit sandpaper. Sheer scraping removes all tool marks and any torn out grain.

Shear scraping with the Robert Sorby Multi tip tool
By: Robert Sorby
February 15, 2008 · 44,473 views

Scarping and Shear scraping with the Robert Sorby Mulit tip tool (RS200KT). 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. Robert Sorby has two dedicated shear scrapers - one for internal work, the second for external finishing. Both feature a 3/8' square shank which sits firmly on the tool rest and presents the cutter at 45º to the workpiece when used in each direction. Each cutter can be re-positioned several times before the need for re-sharpening which is done by honing on the top face. Spare HSS cutters are available.
