Default Re: Hand-Cut Cabinet Maker's Rasps by Auriou

That's it Ron a good rasp. The coarse side cuts quickly compared to my #49, and the fine side leaves a better finish. The only drawback is both sides are flat, so You need another (#49 or Auriou) to do curved work.
The Auriou rasps sound much nicer than Nicholson. They would be nice for making Maloof chairs, with the rasp going to a point and teeth out to the edge.
By the way, the #49 and #50 are now made in Brazil...gone are the days of made in USA
The chair I'm working on, is another Maloof chair. I've been lucky enough to have the chance to make another. I've made a few slight changes from the first two I made last year.
Cheers!

I have a T-square type of tool that will be used for quickly figuring board foot amounts, which I will be sculpting also. And another project that is still in incubater stage, not ready to be revealed.

If I get the Nicholson #49 and #50 to get me started, which one Auriou should I also get?
Sparky,

I apologize for the delay in answering. I hope that I am not too late for you but Auriou has a beautiful 10" #9 Chairmaker's Rasp. I think this might be perfect for what you are speaking about. One last thing and I know that Okami and I differ on this but I prefer having both the Nicholson #49 and #50. The #50 is just a little smoother and cleans up the #49 quite nicely. I would also suggest you might want to look at the Lie-Nielsen Cabinetmaker's floats. If you run rasp, file, float you will be very pleased. Oh, and I too like the Shinto Rasp, I just would not give up the #50.

Fred

Nice, Michael - thanks for that info. I'm gonna have to get me some of those dragon-cut rasps. They look really useful for this task (chair making). I didn't check - do they sell handles for them?

No they don't. Make a stick with a hole in it? I think you can handle that.
Seriously, although the tang looks thicker than usual at the small end
it will probably fit in an ordinary file handle. You can get handles specifically
for rasps which are usually bigger all around. Farriers have really stout rasp handles.

I like the Skroo-zon on style.

Uh oh, here we go again... They're Dragons, and probably made in China, based on the name and the price. At least in this case Auriou had abandoned the market.


Oops, I might have misunderstood you Fred. I think the rasps in the guitar shaping photo are genuine Auriou rasps, not Dragon. I don't think Dragon has a rasp with curved tip.

I like that curved tip rasp:sdrool:
I can't find Auriou anywhere here (Japan)
