Restoring Planes: Metal and Wooden

  Quick Spokeshave Tune Up by Bob Smalser 1 of 4  



Spokeshaves cut
exactly like planes.





The critical parts are the blade support in back, the cap iron fit supporting the un-beveled blade edge, and the distance between the edge and the front sole – the opening of the mouth.

Check the blade support in the casting… this 15-dollar eBay contemporary Stanley 151’s is fine… use Prussian Blue or soot from a smoky lamp to find and flat needle files to take down any high spots.

Simply smoke or coat the blade, gently put it in place, and tighten the slotted screw to make the marks.
