    I bought the round rasp a couple of months ago and I find it to be very useful! I used it to smooth out the body contours on both my templates and body blank. I'm sure I'll use it for other jobs as well!
    I think it's a definate must on the list of tools to own.

    I use the flat one more than the round. The drill press ones don't cut the mustard for me though....T

    Man, I bought some of those last time I went to Woodcraft. I snapped both of em within minutes of trying to carve some really hard jujube wood.!! I'm sticking with my trusty yellow handled one i bought from Orchard Supply. I remember they were nice and sharp for the few minutes they did last though. Wish I could sharpen my yellow-handled one.
