Type of basked rake used for deep water quahauging on Cape Cod. It consists of an iron framework, forming a curved bowl, the under-edge of which is set with thin steel teeth varying in length from 2 to 4 inches, though usually 2 1/2 inch teeth are preferred. Over the bowl of this rake, which is strengthened by side and cross pieces of iron, is fitted a twine net, which, like the net of a scallop dredge, drags behind the framework. An average rake has from 19 to 21 teeth and weighs from 15 to 20 pounds.
