bluesy Posted July 27, 2008 Report Share Posted July 27, 2008 I just wanted to comment after using a spokeshave for the first time. I purchased a small, fairly cheap, Kunz spokeshave. It works fine, but is hard to set up as it has no micro-adjustments for the blade. I just finished my first neck, which I mostly shaped using this spokeshave. After shaving off two 45 degree chamfers down each side, from that point I was able to just whittle away at it until it felt right. I developed a technique for myself where I sat in a chair with the neck heel on the ground and the pegboard in my left hand. Using the spokeshave set for a shallow cut, and holding it with my right hand only, I found I could whittle away at the neck, slowly turning it using my left hand, and achieve a very smooth round surface. A great tool! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
