Veritas - Spokeshave - Curved Base have been designed for smooth, effective, chatter free shaping of chair spindles, panel edges, paddles and tool handles.

The 3.2mm(1/8") thick A2 steel blade, machined lever cap and blade bed achieve chatter free cutting in virtually all conditions. The ductile cast iron body is fitted with Bubinga handles, shaped for comfort and control. The toe serves as a thumb rest allowing the user to choke up on the body to attain exceptional control for fine work. Twin adjustment wheels quickly and accurately control cut depth and skew and shims let you adjust the mouth opening as needed.

The concave spokeshave is popular with chair and paddle makers, with a 45 degree bed angle and a sole radius of 33.3mm ( 1 5/16"), it is the first choice for a wide range of jobs from small spindles to large oars.

Each spokeshave weighs about 450g (12 oz) and is 267mm (10.5") long overall.

Veritas offer a kit which allows you to make custom handles for any of the three spokeshaves. The kit includes brass washers, hanger bolts, a mandrel for lathe mounting and assembly, plus detailed instructions.

    Veritas make such beautiful products. Items to be cherished but also used. This curved base spokeshave is a delight to handle. Set up is easy, adjustment is smooth and precise, cutting action is excellent.
    Thanks to Wood Workers Workshop for handling the order and their very good communications.

    Curved base spokeshave

    Once you have the blade adjusted, this is a light and easy to use spokeshave - I am getting a lot less catching and judder compared with my old Stanley!

    I had bought the curved and flat base spokeshaves together and I must say they are brilliant to use. Quick to set up with brass screw adjustment, which you can make micro adjustments just as the same with using older spokeshaves by tapping. The handle has a great feel, lovely to work with and they just look the business.
