The Rasping Fixture™
Great for shaping woodwork with rasps and files.
Great for saw makers and detail filers!
Protect your bench top and improve Ergonomics!
Freehand woodshaping can present a few obstacles.
The work needs held so that the shaping can be accomplished,
but a vise isn't always the right angle for the arm and wrist.
Besides, who wants to develop wrist injuries, or risk damage to their bench or vise chop?

The Rasping Fixture features a stable and spacious 7-1/4 x 14-3/4, 3/4 inch thick base.
The cleats underneath locate it over a corner of the bench,
offering a 3-1/4 inch overhang that protects your bench from errant tools.
Installation is quick and easy!
Simply clamp it to the corner of your bench with either a clamp or holdfast.
Depending on your bench, you may also clamp it with your vise.
The circular cutout allows you to rasp and file the work productively,
with total ergonomic control.
Go ahead and shape using any rasp or file, without fear of damage to your bench.
This fixture supports the work and takes all the abuse.
Shaping with a rasp is work that progresses from coarse to fine.
Working accurately when shaping, particularly in radius's of any kind
is often a compound movement that requires the tool to move
in more than one axis at the same time.
This fixture supports the workpiece with just hand pressure,
so you can reposition smoothly, fluidly and productively as you work.
This fixture allows the woodworkers's arm and wrist to function easily, flexibly and with strength
within the parameters of natural positions as it grasps and rotates the rasp and file.
It is an asset to work like shaping Cabriole Legs, compound radius work,
and many other associated tasks in Woodworking and Lutherie.
Saw building from kits are very popular, as is working with complex shapes.
Shape compound radiused and increasing / decreasing parts such as saw handles with ease.
A fixture that protects the bench from damage and facilitates tasks for ease of work all at the same time!
