  • shaping a tang A2 steel

    Hi, I would like to make woodturning scrapers out of A2 steel.
    How do I shape the tang? Thanks for your help, Peter

    Tang - not just for NASA

    Over the years I've used a hacksaw, grinder and bandsaw to shape these tangs depending on what was at hand. Custom scraper profiles can save a lot of time at the lathe. Good luck.

      i just made a scraper (for metal)
      I roughed the shoulder of the tang on the mill , then heated it up with a OA torch,and drew it out into the proper traditional shape, and let it cool slowly.

      i will not be forging any more tangs, waste of time trying to fit the handle,
      next one is just getting a straight square tang, going into a hole with epoxy.
