      Great Rasp...going downhill?

      Pros

      • Easy to control
      • Fast cutting

      Cons

      • Poor QC from Brazil

      Best Uses

      • Selfbows
      • Team up with scraper

      Comments about Nicholson #49 & #50 Bow Building Rasps:

      Caution: use of rasp card will dull teeth; use a bristle brush.

      For self bows and all-wood laminates, I use my Nicholson 49 almost every day and love it. Alternating with a cabinet scraper, you'll achieve a smooth belly without the "washboard" effect. It's easy to control and you can hog off wood or take it easy and remove small ammounts. However, Nicholson has moved manufacturing to Brazil and the quality control isn't so great. The teeth are offset poorly. The tool still works well, but it's sad to see an American product fall this way.

            Comments about Nicholson #49 & #50 Bow Building Rasps:

            This is without a doubt an excellent tool for selfbow making. Quality is there, cuts great, well made. The only problem I had with it was when I was tapping on a file handle, carefully I will add, the tip broke off. Had it resting on a wooden work bench and was tapping on the handle, the very tip,1/2", broke off. Maybe a fluke, I don't know, but I was going to buy the #49 as well but now I'm not sure.

                These rasps will set you free. They hog away wood without a lot of effort.

                      File is advertized as "made in USA", but mine is stamped "made in Brazil". Also has a pretty good ding on the side. Not too happy I spent the $$$ on this file- quality is dubious.

                          These are really nice tools for shaping the handle and fadeouts on a selfbow.
