Spokeshaves are used to shape and smooth wooden rods and shafts. These particular spokeshaves from IRWIN Record are reasonably well-made. The ductile cast-iron body is 250mm long with a HSS 54mm-wide blade fixed in place. It has quick and easy lateral and vertical adjustment with two soles ground to shape.
The flat sole is used for chamfering and shaping while the round sole can be used on convex and concave surfaces.
