WOODWORKERS LATHE TOOLS - CHISELS AND SCRAPERS

V. Ryan 2012

 

THE SQUARE END CHISEL
 

A square end chisel is often used after a gouge has been applied, to rough out a basic shape. If sharpened correctly, a lathe chisel should produce a more accurate and smoother finish.

 
 
THE SKEW CHISEL
 
A skew chisel can also be used to produce a smooth and accurate finish, after a gouge. The skew of the chisel allows the lathe operator to get into tight shapes / corners.
 
 
 
FULL ROUND SCRAPER
 
A full round scraper is used to cut hollow areas / internal curves. Some experienced wood turners prefer to use scrapers, ground to various shapes. If sharpened regularly, they produce a good finish.
 
SQUARE END SCRAPER
 
A flat scraper is used to produce a flat or level surface.
