I have bought the #49 and #50 rasp package. I would like to know if there is a special way to use them so they won't clog? I'm in the proccess of building a hickory bow with a red oak handle. For the life of me, it doesn't matter which angle they're used or how much pressure is applied or which side I use, they just plug solid. Are they supposed to be prepped with alcohol or chalk powder? I'm baffled and frustrated since they aren't cheap rasps!
