In Detail

Based on an Edward Preston tool from the 1930s, this is Lie-Nielsen's first spokeshave. Finely cast in bronze with an A-2 steel blade cryogenically treated and hardened to Rockwell 60-62. The blade is supplied with a 25° bevel and bedded at 40° to the sole bevel down. The spokeshave is designed for removing fine shavings from, and the precise shaping of, workpieces. A good analogy would be the smoothing plane of spokeshaves. A very solid feeling tool, available with either a flat sole for convex or a curved sole for concave work. 170mm(6 3/4") long with a 16mm(5/8")

Tactile little tool for fine working

As with all Lie-Neilson tools, arrived nicely packaged in a quality box. I tested it straight from the box on some Oak semi-end grain, a convex curved section for a current project. Adjusted as recommended in the instructions it produced nice even and very fine shavings, leaving a lovely finish on the wood. Due to its size it can be held in a number of ways to allow good control of fine work.

Fantastic Tool

A beautifully made and well finished tool which is a joy to use. I have had mine for over a year now and found on first use that it was clogging up so I opened the mouth by about two thousandths with a fine mill file which cured it. The blade is superb, I have only honed it a couple of times. I think it is worth the extra for such a good tool.

Spokeshave Gem

I use the flat sole and curve sole Lie-Nielsen small spokeshaves for small box making, in particular for stopped-chamfers. The tools are abolute gems and being as small as they are, give perfect feedback to the user. Setting up is easy, following Lie-Lielsen's recommended procedure. As with all L/N tools, you get what you pay for and these are no exception.
