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.

    Very pleased with this purchase, as I expected to be, as I have a couple of other Veritas tools and they are a very good.
    This spokeshave is a breeze to use, and even my seven year old niece enjoyed it and found it easy (she made a spatular with a bit of help).
    The build quality is excellent. The balance is good and there is enough weight. What I particularly liked was the adjustment mechanism to control the cut; very fast and precise.
    I have only owned an old Stanley spokeshave before so I don't have an opinion against other good makes, but I would certainly recommend the Veritas to anyone.

    All Veritas products I have purchased are both reasonably priced and high quality. I particularly like using the spoke shave as it lends itself to more creative shaping. Comfortable handle size and engineered for ease of use.

    Favourite bits of kit!

    I had bought the flat and curved 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.
