Workshop Heaven Hand Stitched Cabinet Rasp 150mm No3 (28tcm)

29.5

Cabinet rasps are similar in section to a halfround but the profile is flatter, giving greater contact and more efficient material removal on shallow concavities.

The 150 cabinet No.3 is a great rasp for initial shaping of curved elements, taking corners off to produce a faceted version of the final form. All halfround and cabinet rasps have finely toothed edges so that they can also be used to cut sideways and extend surfaces into tight corners.

  • Shoulder to tip: 150mm
  • Overall length: 290mm approx
  • Face width: 17mm
  • Thickness: 3mm
  • Coarseness: 28 teeth per square cm (medium/coarse)
  • Fitted with a Holtzapffel pattern walnut handle.

Each Workshop Heaven hand stitched rasp begins life as a forged and annealed blank of high carbon tool steel is carefully ground and ‘fined’ to a smooth surface before being strapped to a soft anvil to have their teeth individually raised or ‘stitched’ one by one with a special punch and a curved filemakers hammer. 
 
 The handles are turned from English walnut with brass ferrules to a 200 year old Holtzappfel pattern, individually fitted and set by hand for a comfortable, elegant and secure grip.

Rasp Care
In order to keep your rasps clean and free from corrosion we recommend removing any clogging from the surface with a stiff bristled brush and applying a few drops of metalguard ultra liquid corrosion inhibitor after each use. Store your rasps in such a way that they cannot touch or rub against each other.

We bought these continental rasps as an economical alternative to our existing Auriou rasps. They really are excellent. They cut well and leave a good finish. A pleasure to use.
