Lee Valley Cast Round Spokeshave
Founded in 1825, Edward Preston & Sons, Ltd. produced some of the finest tools of the Victorian age. Lee Valley have created a close replica of their model 1374 round-bottomed spokeshave, a tool as elegant as it is effective.
Smaller than typical spokeshaves at 6-3/4" long overall, it is designed for fine smoothing and shaping, with a tight mouth opening that helps reduce tear-out, and a 5/8" radius sole that allows you to work tight curves. Raised handles keep your hands clear of the work.
The Lee Valley version is investment-cast in stainless steel and faithfully reproduces the polished scrollwork and scalloped borders of the original.
The lapped PM-V11 blade is 1-3/8" wide and 3/32" thick with a 30° bevel, and clamped with a thumbscrew and cap iron.
Made in Canada. An excellent value, highly recommended.
