The Veritas pullshave was designed for hollowing or recessing an area;
for example, shaping and smoothing chair seats. Our unique design is the
result of taking a convex spokeshave and reconfiguring it with a handle
and knob to make it both easier to use and better suited to rigorous work
there is no tool like it on the market. It will do the work associated
with traditional inshaves and travishers.
The 1/8" (0.125") thick, lapped blade, and carefully machined
blade bed and cap iron, all combine to produce chatter-free cutting. The
blade bed angle is 45° and the sole radius is 3-1/2". The ductile
cast iron body is fitted with a large rear handle and a front knob of
hardwood; together they provide exceptional control and comfort. The twin
adjustment thumb wheels quickly and accurately control the depth of cut.
Blades come in A2 or O1 steel; an optional PM-V11® steel blade is
Made in Canada. Patented.
For those who cannot resist the temptation to customize their tools, we
offer a kit that allows you to make a custom rear handle for a Veritas
pullshave. The kit includes a brass washer, a hanger bolt, a hex bolt,
a mandrel for lathe mounting and assembly (although handles can also be
carved or shaped with other freehand techniques), and detailed instructions
you just need to supply the wood.
