Default What is a negative scraper?

We do occasionally use the skew the way it was intended as well. [emoji16][emoji16]

I used to be into woodcarving. I went to South America and there were guys there sitting on logs in the mesquito infested jungle using tools made from who knows what. They put out work that I couldn’t dream of doing with my Henry Taylors.

I was impressed and thought well what ever works and gets the job done.

Now I do admire people that are blessed to do it the right way. I am just seldom one of them. [emoji19]
