At one time the mainstay of the turner's armoury, especially during the 'dark ages' of the turning craft between the thirties an d the seventies, these largely unsophisticated tools still perform a vital role in the finishing of a wide range of faceplate turning projects. There are scrapers for bowls and scrapers for boxes; scrapers for platters and scrapers for shearing. But you'll find there are no scrapers for spindles: that just isn't the way of it!

Round Nose Scrapers: If you're turning bowls, then you certainly need to be looking in this section.

In the lighter scrapers, up to 1-1/4', the Taylor designs have a fuller curve, approaching a half-round (see, above) whilst the Sorby are radiused but far from semi-circular in plan (see, above). The heavy duty scrapers, or as Sorby term them 'extra-heavy duty scrapers' show further disparities: the Taylor HS15 is a full semicircular profile (as their HS16 is more correctly termed 'domed' which is also the shape of the Sorby 8004LH.

Straight-Edged Scrapers: This large group includes both square scrapers and skew scrapers, the difference being that a square scraper is cut square across at 90 degrees to the tool axis whilst a skew scraper has its edge ground to make an angle of around 20 degrees to the tool axis.
All of the standard weight models have straight across grinds but in the Heavy Duty table, all are skew ground except the Taylor HS14. These tools are especially useful when finishing the surface of platters, trays and tabletops, but do need a degree of care in use to avoid leaving grooves behind. In this respect the skew designs are easier to handle than the straight grinds. The Taylor HS14 is ground square across.
