I have one of those large heavy scrapers... 1 1/2" I think... I remember using it once quite a while ago and loved the way it cleaned up the transition area of the bowl I was working on and made it very easy to get a nice curve there... Normally I do the whole bowl with a 1/2" bowl gouge with a fingernail grind. Anyway, I was working on a Sweetgum green (sorta) bowl yesterday and thought "that scraper would work great on this transition curve" and sharpened it up.... .... and all it wanted to do was catch... and catch... and catch... changed the tool rest height, tried changing the angle of attack... catch, catch, catch.... had the Oneway curved tool rest very close to the wood... more catches.... Went back the bowl gouge laid over on it's side and finished scraping/light cutting that area and finished the bowl... So... what was up with that? The last time I used that heavy gouge I had beautiful ribbons coming off of it, almost no effort at all as it glided across the surface... now I can't get it to work at all. Any help?
