Robert Sorby External Shear Scraper (827H)
Shear scraping is a method of woodturning which relies on the presentation of the scraper at a shear angle to peel away the wood fibers. This technique offers some significant advantages over conventional scrapers.
- At the optimum angle of 45°, 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 3/8" square shank sits firmly on the toolrest and presents the cutter precisely at 45° to the workpiece when used in either direction. This is due to the unique cutter seating position. Comes fitted with HSS square cutter. Cutters are also available in our Excelsior high performance range (Titanium Nitride coating). Comes with hard White Ash handles and solid brass ferrule.
