Hollow Vessel Scraper Set
These new versatile scrapers, designed specifically for hollow vessel turning, are the absolute best turning tool innovation we have seen in years.
Set includes three tools, a spear point scraper with depth stop, tight bend right hand scraper, and an adjustable point right hand scraper with a more open bend and an amazingly simple thickness gauge.
The HSS tip on the adjustable scraper allows unlimited cutting angles. How do they work? Start by boring a center hole in your work with the spear point scraper. It centers itself and, with the depth stop, drills a hole to the exact depth you require. You'll never have to guess about depth of cut or ruin a project by cutting too deep again.
Once your center is bored you can use one of the bent scrapers to begin hollowing your piece. The best feature of this kit is the revolutionary wall thickness gauge which eliminates the trial and error or guesswork process of determining wall thickness.
The gauge attaches to the ferrule of either scraper (it has a 3/4" ID). Adjust the "feeler gauge" to your desired wall thickness, then turn to this exact dimension by scraping until the gauge's finger loop is held tight against the tool handle.
Using this new thickness gauge anyone can create thin wall vessels and be confident that the wall thickness is consistent throughout the piece. Overall tool length 14", blades range from 5 to 5-1/2" in length, ash handles with 3/4" brass ferrules.
