Veritas - Spokeshave - Flat Base has 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.
