The Roughing Rasp
Ref: G 01 08
This is the "hog" that reduces your band saw blank to more closely resemble to the shape you want (think cabriole leg, guitar neck, gun stock, decoy duck blanks etc)
Flat and half round tapered section, grain 3. the rasp (excluding the handle) is 12" (300mm) long.
Available in left or right handed models.
The address position for holding your rasp is slightly skewed across the grain (just like you skew a plane along the grain) - so Auriou offset the cutting teeth to allow for this skew angle so the teeth cut straight. A right hander skews his rasp on the opposite side to a left hander so Auriou offset the teeth either side of straight, depending on your handedness. This is done for ergonomic, efficiency and comfort reasons. It is so much easier than trying to push the tool dead straight.
Unfortunately the right-handed version is not currently available. Please call us on 01473 784 983 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our waiting list.
Lefties are special orders and take up to 6 weeks to despatch from order.
Size of tool excluding handle 300mm x 30mm x 8mm
