Record Spokeshave

I was walking through an outdoor "antique" market last weekend and found an old Record A64 spokeshave. The blade iron is also stamped Record - Made in England. The iron is nicked a bit but should sharpen up nicely with a little elbow grease. The body appears to be cast iron. Its a little smaller but heavier than my other spokeshaves. Don't know much about this particular tool, but it will be fun to get it tuned up and ready to take on some maple or mahogany necks. It'll be interesting to see how it feels comparied to my more modern spokeshaves. Paid 10 Euros - about $13US.

Good for you. I like looking for tools in antique stores myself. It is a great way to find nice tools, and sometimes you find an old custom tool someone built that really rocks. I found a funky circle cutter type tool(with a nice cutting blade) put together by some clever person. It is a real handy tool. You can find great planes and carving tools also.

Peace,Rich
