While perusing back issues of the SPSW newsletter, the Chips & Shavings, I came upon a great tutorial written by SPSW Vice-President Eric Lofstrom on the proper use of the Spear Point Scraper.
“Do your drool over fine curves? Are you sanding out ridges & transitions in your Turnings?
Many turners have difficulty blending curves together, so they resort to sandpaper to refine their form. Sanding takes care of the problem, but also creates some of its own….. When I need to finesse a curve, my spear-point scraper can help smooth the shape.”
