Veritas Round Spokeshave Review By: I.Ball

Category: Spokshaves

Manufacturer: Veritas

Tool Type: Spokshave

Model No: N/A

The Veritas Round spokeshave is a 10 1/2" long shave made from ductile cast iron, with selected brass fittings and fitted with rich wooden handles.

The comfortable handles are made from bubinga also known as African rosewood. The handles are finished with slim brass fittings which give the shave an extra look of elegance as the slender brass rings sit between the reddish wooden handles and black body.

As well as the aesthetically pleasing look, the spokeshave has been designed for comfort with constant curves throughout the shaves parts.

These curved parts result in no uncomfortable corners or edges which help ensure the tool can be used comfortably for long periods.

The Veritas Round spokeshave is fitted (usually) with a 3mm (1/8 inch) thick A2 steel cutter. There is also the option of a 01 steel cutter.

The blade is locked in place with the use of a lever cap. The blade is secured in position by placing the bottom eye of the lever cap through the securing screw and then sliding the lever cap downwards so the securing screw is positioned in the top eye of the lever cap.

Once the lever cap is in position and the blade is in the required position, the lever cap is locked in place by turning and locking the knurled locking nut located at the top of the lever cap. This process is reversed for removing / loosening the lever cap and blade.

The blade has a fine adjustment mechanism in the form or two knurled brass nuts which locate with the top of the blade on either side.

These brass nuts allow the blade depth to be accurately set when used in tandem or the skew of the blade to be set by using one of the brass nuts more than the opposite side.

Note: ensure the lever cap is loosened before making adjustments to help prevent damage.

The round Veritas spokeshave has as the name suggests, a rounded sole.

The curved sole / round bottom is suitable for a number of fine shaving and shaping applications on concave curved edges.

The spokeshave body beds the blade at a 45 degree angle.

The spokeshave is also supplied with two shims offering the option of effectively changing the mouth opening size for finer work. This is achieved by placing the shims underneath the blade. The shims consist of a purple shim (0.005") and a blue shim (0.010").

The shave also has available an optional extra hardware kit for making and fitting your own handles should you wish to.

The Veritas round spokeshave is also available in Veritas flat spokeshave and Veritas concave spokeshave versions.

These spokeshaves are made to a straight handle spokeshave design opposed to a slightly higher raised arched handle design.

The spokeshave is presented in a cardboard box (usually white) with a photo label of the tool. The box also contains a Veritas round spokeshave instruction leaflet.

This patented Veritas spokeshave is made in Canada.
