Bargain Ringed Gidgee Curved Sole Spoke Shave
This ringed gidgee spoke shave is selling for a bargain price due to the tiny superficial defect in the brass joint seen in the third photo. This does not affect the life or fuction of the tool.
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.
