A chamfer tool is a specialist tool to help with quickly forming
on a square edge or corner.
There are a few different chamfering tools available, these include:
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.
There are a few different chamfer planes out there which tend to
be antique (over 100 years) in age. The most common chamfer planes
which are seen are old wooden chamfer planes.
There is also the Stanley 72 plane which is an iron chamfer plane.
There are a few woodworking planes which have an additional attachment
for forming chamfers.
One such plane is the Veritas block plane which has the option of fitting the Veritas chamfer attachment to it.
