  • the stone riffler #2, 8″, grain # 10
  • the stone riffler #6, 8″, grain # 10

Need some advice to choose ? Want a special shape of rasp ? Please feel free to ask me, I’ll do my best to help you.

 

1. Stitching grains

Grains are numbered from # 1 (the coarsest) to # 15 (the finest).

By coarse, we mean that in a given area there will be fewer but higher teeth than that for a finer grain.

So the first numbers are used for roughing, one pass of the tool removing much material. The high numbers are used for finishing work, to achieve a flawless surface.

 

 

Warning ! During the stitching operation of the teeth, we direct them to optimize the work of aright-handed user.

On request (and without no additional cost because it’s no more difficult to stitch for us), all these models are stitched specialy for left-handers.

3. The 2 ranges

All these models are produced in two ranges: Traditional & Sapphire.The Traditional range is the standard choice, used at all times.In addition, we have developed a new technical range that highly improves the efficiency of hand-stitched tools.

The Sapphire range is the « ultimate » solution ! More efficient for all materials, this range is especially recommended for hard materials (hardwoods such old oak, hard plastic type Altuglas Ertalon, etc..).
