Topic tags/keywords: turning scraper new tool

I have been fortunate to have been able to try out the new Kelton scraper that will be first offered at the AAW Symposium. I have from the beginning had difficulty using scrapers without getting a catch. That has changed though. The Kelton scraper is adjustable in a variety of ways. It can be positioned for use as a negative rake scraper or one of a more neutral position. The shaft is flat on two sides and rounder on the remainder. That plus the rotational adjustment and the heft makes it a scraper for every situation. The instructions that come with the tool address all of the various ways the scraper can be positioned. Anyone who knows me is aware of my feelings about the importance of good instructions.

Sounds like a really good tool, Barbara. Lucky you! Are you going to St. Paul?
