Bargain Poplarbox Burl Curved Sole Spoke Shave
This stunning Poplar box burl spoke shave is selling for a bargain price due to the mouth being slightly wider than normal. This can be beneficial if you are using it on green timber or would like a thicker shaving. It may let you down on hard/cranky timbers, however bear in mind that you can still reverse the blade to bevel up and use it as a scraper on difficult timbers.
This gidgee Curved Spoke Shave is 280mm long x 24 mm wide x 24 mm high. With a 75mm radius on the sole. Weighs 0.5 Kg and has a 45mm wide x 1.6mm thick x 34mm long Tool Steel (TS) blade hardened to Rc 62-64.
It has a 55 degrees blade angle for planing and by reversing the blade (bevel up) it will perform as a scraper for use of hard cranky woods.
Fine finishing of inside curves. You can also plane a combination of inside and outside curves with one pass once you have mastered this tool.
