Figure 119.  Rasp

Archie Waiters said he used a rasp to trim mules’ hooves, but it is really a tool for shaping and smoothing wood.  Ruska Gregg used a rasp like this one, only larger, when he made a breadboard.  A rasp is like a file but it has separate little cutting points that look like very tiny half-cups with sharp rims.  (Photo 1984)
