    Well, to add more to the mix, a standard scraper with a 70 degree bevel would have included angles of 70 and 0..... So, included angles would be...

    These are always fun because you don't have to stop the lathe to empty the shavings! Nice work!! Thanks for sharing!

    Since I use scrapers, all of my scrapers are sharpened with 70 degree bevels. If you are using a gouge, your included angles are more similar to a...

    How is the knee? Would like to have you back to our club soon. We have a new VP of Programs (Brad Stave). Give me a call next time you head north. My cell is 360-813-4484.

    Do you happen to have Wally Dickerman's phone number? I hear he moved to Portland.

    Reed, I hear you're headed to the Bremerton area in a month or two to make a presentation to the Olympic Peninsula Woodturners. Looking forward to it! Call me ahead of time, 360-813-4484 and perhaps I can give your event a little extra promotion.

    Reed - I've got some 16" diameter madrone bowls that I hoped to make salad bowls from. I rough turned (10%+) and then soaked in DNA for 3 days, and wrapped them per the newspaper and plastic wrap I've seen you talk about. Then I started reading closer, and I think that I should have boiled instead of DNA. Is this correct?

    Thanks for the help, Mike Ash
