First produced in the late 1800s, drawknife (or drawshave) guides simply clamp onto a drawknife blade, forming a pair of depth-limiting fences that prevent the blade from diving into the workpiece.
 
Designed for cutting consistent chamfers, they are also used for quick removal of stock from a square blank in preparation for turning.
 
The guides have 45° faces for chamfers, and 30° faces for reducing square stock. The distance you set between the guides governs the width and depth of cut made. The rounded nose lets the blade pivot for the best cutting angle.
 
Designed for straight blades measuring at least 3/16" thick and between 3/4" and
1-1/4" in depth, the guides have narrow slits to trap the cutting edge, and brass thumbscrews to clamp the blade.
 
 
The back of the blade needs to have a slight forward slant in the clamping area (the part above 3/16" blade thickness), which can be readily ground if necessary.
 
The guides provide great control for a tool that can remove wood quickly.
 
Made in Canada.
