Tips: The use of wood rasp
Proper selection of wood rasp has a great impact on processing quality, work efficiency and the service life of rasp.
- Coarse wood rasp
The rasp has a large tooth pitch and tooth depth, and is not easy to be blocked. It is suitable for rough sharpening (that is, large filing allowance, low precision level and low surface quality requirements) and relatively soft wood materials filing with improved efficiency
- Fine wood rasp
It is suitable for processing harder materials, and often used in fine processing to ensure the accuracy of the processed parts.
The filing direction of the rasp should be perpendicular to the wood grain or at a certain angle. The teeth of the rasp are arranged forward, that is, the rasp is in the filing (working) state when the file is pushed forward, and it is in the non-file (non-working) state when the file is returned. Therefore, when pushing the rasp, press down forcefully to complete the filing, but avoid shaking up and down, and do not use force when returning to the file to avoid dull teeth.
The correct holding gesture of the wood rasp helps to improve the quality of the sharpening. The grip method of the rasp are as follow. The palm of one hand is placed against the end of the wooden handle of the file, the thumb is placed on the handle of the rasp, and the other four fingers are bent under the handle, so as to firm grip the handle of rasp. The other hand can be used with a variety of postures according to the size of the rasp and the intensity of the force.
