Works like a simple scraper tool except it cuts necessary toothing grooves to give glue something to grab.
Works excellent on all, wood to wood, bamboo to wood and even glass to wood combinations that require something extra for the glue to grab. Hardwood does not allow glue into the fibers because they are so dense making a weak glue joint. The solution is easy just use a toothing tool to cut grooves lengthwise in the wood or bamboo surfaces to be glued. Using the toothing tool, you will be sure to give the glue something to really GRAB hold of. The PERFECT tool for applying toothing grooves on hickory backing strips, belly cores, bamboo backing strips as well as inner core laminations and anything made of wood or bamboo. You probably will not find a tool at this price that will give you good toothing grooves like you need. This simple little toothing tool gets the job done without the heavy cost. Tough and lasts forever, easy to sharpen with a sanding block with dull 220 grit or a fine file.
Not only will this allow you to make sure you have seriously strong glue joints on wood to wood or bamboo to wood it can also be used on the wood inner core lams of a glass laminated style of bow. Just apply the grooves to the center core, not the glass and you will have a much stronger glue joint on glass bows as well.
