Woodcut Irons Shear Scraper
The Woodcut Tools Irons Shear Scraper is designed to shear cut the external shapes of
bowls and hollow forms. Think of it like a cabinetmaker’s scraper for turners.
It is used to refine shapes, remove any high spots and torn grain, create smooth curves
and flowing lines. The benefit of this is a uniform surface straight from the tool that
makes sanding easier.
This tool uses a 40 mm or 1.6” steel diameter cutter with high carbon and chromium content and a hardness of approximately 62 HRC for better wear resistance and a sharp edge. Ideal for both hard and soft woods. The cutter angle can be easily adjusted while you work with the spring washer, secured with a button head screw, fixed with the hex key supplied. The cutter is three sided so that you aren't constantly having to hone a single edge, as one edge dulls another can be rotated into position. The cutter can be easily sharpened with a diamond hone.
The shaft is 5/8" dia. round and 1/2" long. Milled to support the cutter and easy to hold without a handle. Features a black oxide finish to help prevent corrosion.
Please note: This tool should not be used on the interior of bowls or vessels.
The Woodcut Irons Shear scraper has been designed in collaboration with professional woodturner Phil Irons https://www.philironswoodturning.co.uk/
