>Our turning club has tapes we can check out and I noticed all the "big boys" use scrapers to get a clean surface. I had to have a lathe like Raffan uses in his shop so I got one of his scrapers also. I have had more than one bowl come flying out of the chuck with a catch near the rim. Thinking I was presenting too much edge to the work I got a much thinner scraper which leaves ridges in the work. I now use a sandpaper scraper run with a right angle drill turning CCW and have not lost a bowl to date.
