Axminster Rider Rasps

The Axminster Rider brand now includes a range of round, half round and flat rasps.

For any woodworking or furniture making that involves shaping curved or carved surfaces, a quality rasp is invaluable. When it comes to producing a complex curve such as cabriole leg or similar, a rasp is a must. It allows you to achieve the desired shape quickly, with great control and can leave a surface requiring a minimum of finishing.

The blades of the Axminster Rider rasps are made of high quality tool steel. A CNC machine cuts the teeth (referred to as stitching the teeth). The CNC method ensures precise height and even distribution of the teeth. The result is a rasp that performs in a steady and predictable way, and leaves an even surface finish. After stitching the teeth, the blades undergo controlled hardening to HRC 45, ensuring every rasp has a long working life.

All handles are hornbeam with a stainless steel ferrule.
