Air Scraper
« on: February 05, 2015, 03:50:33 pm »
Anyone tried to use an air scraper for debarking, like the HF unit?

I did a FF search but got no hits for this idea. Have a compressor to drive it so if it would work it would be a good cheapie.

Do you? 10 CFM at 90 psi sounds like an air hog.

Be sure to let us know how it works.

I use a spade shovel in the end of an large electric impact gun. Same concept using electric rather than air. It works great.
