Dean Reeves Posted May 21, 2009 Report Share Posted May 21, 2009 So, being that I am building my first guitar I need to fill in some gaps in my available tools. Most important on my list is a spoke shave. A good spoke shave. I wanted to buy from a local retailer so that I might be able to judge what quality level I actually needed. I don't really want a cheap stanley, but I also don't think I need a $135 LIE-NIELSEN one either. I have so far gone to Lowe's, Layman's (local) and Meeks (local) and have yet to find anyone who even knows what a spokeshave is. I know that my area is saturated with commercial construction, but how can you run a hardware store, or be the "Tool Specialist" in a joint like Lowe's, and not even KNOW what a spokeshave is?
