    How to use a hand-stitched rasp on wood

    #17386

    Thanks Ken. I have seen this video before. He knows how to use a rasp. And this is the one I mentioned in the Auriou forum post.

    Good one Ken, I notice he was very often cutting on both the pull and push stroke, I noticed on one of the reviews for the Auriou rasps they recommended only cutting on the push stroke as cutting on the pull stroke dulled the teeth. He must have had several £000 worth of rasps on his bench. The guy as well as being a great craftsman must have been supper fit he was like a machine.

    Thanks Ken that was a great video, he sure knew how to make them “sing”. He must have had a full aresenal of files and rasps. I also thought the “push” stroke was the correct way to use a file or rasp as it dull’s the file / rasp.

    Thanks for sharing !

    Thanks guys, agreed I always thought they had to be used on the push stroke.

    Yes, it’s true most of the work is done on the push stroke but I also use a pull stroke or two at the end to press down the fibres. It burnishes the wood a little but doesn’t cut it.
