Shear Scraping -Right or Left

Jake Niedling
>I was turning a small 7" dia. walnut bowl today and when I went to clean up the outside of the bowl, I noticed I would only get a clean cut surface in one direction and not the other. I have shear scraped many items and direction never seemed to matter. I use a high angle about 45 degrees with the tool rolled almost completely over. The rest of ya'll seen this or have comments?
