Small Spokeshave
Ref: WWSS


Based on the same general design as the Medium Spokeshave, this little tool can do almost everything its larger brother can, but it excels at taking fine cuts to create accurate shapes.

The Ron Hock blade is micro-adjustable with an Allen key, and there is no need to remove the blade as in some shaves.

The tool is made with almost 1/4" of depth adjustment. This means that the nose can be planed flat many times before running out of adjustment. This should only be an occasional operation as the hard maple is very hard-wearing. Even with very hard use, the tool will last for many years.

The wood is Hard Maple, overall length, 7.5" and blade length, 1.5".

Small Spokeshave

Quantity:  



Medium Spokeshave
Ref: WWMS


While the traditional spokeshave shape is attractive, it is time consuming to make, and not particularly ergonomic. Past students will remember being encouraged not to grip the handles of their spokeshaves with their fists, but to use their fingertips to hold the tool nearer to the centre.

The new design, made at The Windsor Workshop, encourages this approach by eliminating the distinct handles, making it easier to pull and push using the fingertips. The tool has a Ron Hock (A2 steel) blade with threaded posts, which can be tightened with the knurled brass knobs on top of the tool.

For adjustment there are two grub screws which are accessible adjacent to the brass knobs, which can be adjusted in and out with an Allen key. The blade is pulled up onto the grub screw with the brass knobs.

This is a superior tool that will give just as good results on end-grain elm, as on green oak.

Shavings, as with the travisher, are expelled through a slot in the top of the tool, leaving the back entire, and comfortable for the fingers when pushing and pulling.

The tool is made with a great depth of adjustment, allowing for the nose (in front of the blade) to be planed flat (or round) many times over its life. The hard maple wears very well and you will have to adjust the nose perhaps twice a year, and that is on tools being used hard every week.

The wood is Hard Maple, overall length, 9" and blade length, 2.75".
