Large Flat Sole Spoke Shave
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.
Used for fine finishing of outside curve work or profiling straight pieces of wood into ovals, rounds etc such as a spoke.
Very effective spokeshave which I now use in preference to the Veritas models for most applications.
