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 with its Stanley 65 chamfer shave

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.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
