Negative Rake Scraper


The plans for the 25mm (1″)

Negative Rake Scraper

These plans are for the Negative Rake Scraper seen in my You Tube video on this topic.  To make it I re-ground a straight edged scraper.  It was a tool I had and was prepared to re-shape.  I did the re-shaping on my 8″ bench grinder and took it slowly.  Don’t try to do all the grinding in one go unless you have a wet grinder.  There is too much danger of burning the steel and altering the temper (steel quality).  I re-ground mine over a couple of days giving the steel time to cool down between each session.
