I have a Nicholson half-round rasp that works fine, but I need a flat rasp, too. I can’t find a flat rasp at the usual home centers or even some of the specialty stores.
Why are inexpensive flat rasps so hard to find? (I know I can buy a fancy, hand-stitched rasp for the price of three tanks of gas, but I prefer driving to work over walking.)
Will a long surform do a decent job in place of a flat rasp (especially on end-grain)?
