A chamfer tool is a specialist tool to help with quickly forming chamfers on a square edge or corner.

There are a few different chamfering tools available, these include:


chamfer spoke-shave

Chamfer Shaves

Chamfer shaves or chamfer spokeshaves have been produced for well over 100 years and are still available to buy new today. Edward Preston chamfer shaves were some of the earlier and more interesting of the iron shaves.

Stanley was another of the very early and long running iron chamfer spoke-shave makers.

Later came the Union 111 chamfer shave, the Record A65 chamfer shave and more recently the Kunz chamfer spokeshave.

Chamfer shaves usually have adjustable fences. The fences allow any through or stopped chamfer to be produced and repeated evenly and uniformly.

There is also the Stanley 72 1/2 plane which offers chamfering.
