Bargain Gidgee Large Flat Sole Spoke Shave
This large flat sole Spoke Shave is only a bargain due to the mouth being wider than standard. It would make an excellent roughout spoke shave and will still be an extremely capable tool.
This Flat sole Spoke Shave is 280mm long x 25 mm wide x 22 mm high. 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 OR a High Speed Steel (HSS) blade hardened to Rc 62. The HSS is ideal if you plan to reverse the blade to bevel up and use it as a scraper on hard timber.
It has a 55 degrees blade pitch for planing, and by reversing the blade to bevel up it will perform as a scraper for use of hard cranky woods. The mouth is protected by a brass sole.
