    Woodturning scraping tools

    Here are some woodturning scaping tools.

    You don't see the handle, but obviously, there is one for each

    Woodturning scraping tools-raclage.jpg

    The blades are HSS made out of pieces of jointer blades.
    I cut them with the dremel with a high speed cutting disc, that goes pretty well.
    I have plenty of different shapes, the one at the top is for scaping the bottom of bowls (you need to hold the handle very strongly, they are prone to engage with the wood)

    The one at the bottom is specially shaped for making captured rings or finger rings.

    It's not clearly seen here, but as I don't know how to drill in HSS (or exactly I don't want to bother with that), the screw is not inserted in a hole, but in an open groove. The result is the same, and you don't even need to un screw completely to change the blade (for the lazy man).
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Hi, thanks,
    Look at preferably my website to see my work. (Facebook, I don't really like, it's just for necessity )
    With a mini lathe, you can enjoy doing lots of pretty things !
    One of my favourite things to make are pencils.
    I don't like to use regular pencil kits, my real challenge is to make kitless pencils, re-using standard commercial pencils, hacking the mechanisms and making a new wooden pen with it.
    Look here for some samples :
    La Belle Note - Photos - Mes tournages : Crayons

    One can sometimes see me in pen selling stores unscrewing and taking pens apart to see if I can do something with them ...

    (Ken, are pencils tools ? I'm joking ... )

    But, woodturning in the living room ..... you must have a very forgiving wife ...
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Strictly speaking, I suppose so (writing tools!). That said, why don't you post them in our Not a Tool, but Homemade subforum?

    There's no better builder "accessory" than an understanding wife. Mine has lived with airplane parts all over the house and has now sacrificed her guest room (and parts of the living and dining rooms) to car parts for the duration of my current project. She's a saint - just ask her!

    I really enjoyed this pen ... you have much patience for these small detail


    Here at home, my word is the last ..
    Yes love! I'm going to do, you're right ... lol
    Joke is that the lathe has over twenty years and never been used and I ended up putting as ornaments. (I was lucky to find him abandoned)

    This one was made from nice curly olive wood from Jerusalem (That's true, I have a certificate )
    and I liked the similarity of the figures with the ones from the paua abalone ..
    So now, you have to practice and use your lathe !
    Cheers !
