The Torquata 25mm Negative Rake Bowl Finishing Scraper
Rake is the angle of a tool relative to its cutting surface, and most turning tools have a zero (or neutral) rake. The Torquata negative rake scraper has a negative rake, so the face of the cutting tool slopes away from the cutting edge. The geometry makes a cut less aggressive and safer. The negative rake angle virtually eliminates chatter and chipping. Use this tool to smooth all types of interior surfaces on bowls and other concave surfaces with no stress.
