Our large spokeshave provides all the utility of our regular spokeshaves – a tight mouth, simple blade-depth adjustment, and very precise machining – but in a larger, more robust package for quick yet controlled stock removal on larger scale work.
At over 18" across, it affords ample space to comfortably grip the tool without worry of scraping your knuckles against the workpiece – a common issue when using a small tool on a larger project.
The shave comes with a 2-5/8" wide, 1/8" thick A2 or O1 tool steel blade, seated at 45° to the sole. The integrated thumbwheels allow quick and repeatable blade-depth and skew adjustment, and two shims are supplied to enable mouth-opening adjustment from 0.040" (no shims) to 0.020" (with shims) to suit your work requirements.
The body is investment-cast ductile iron fitted with comfortable African rosewood handles. The combination of a thick blade with machined lever cap and blade bed produces chatterfree cutting in virtually all conditions.
Weighs 1.3 lb. Patented.
For those who cannot resist the urge to customize their tools, we offer a kit for making custom handles. The kit includes two brass washers, two hanger bolts, a hex bolt, detailed instructions, and a mandrel for lathe mounting (though handles can be carved or shaped with other freehand techniques).
