Regarding scrapers. A scraper made of High Speed Steel or partical metal steel like the thompsons with a gresh burr will cut much cleaner than a carbid scraper. Thats using it flat. If you use it as a shear scraper its far superior. The carbide scrapers will shear scrape somewhat when brand new but are terrible once you wear 5he new edge off.
The cupped carbide tools cutf just a.little better than the flat.9nes but hold an edge many times as long. If you use them as bevel rubbing tools the finish can be superior to most bowl gouges.
