Crown Tools Sliding Bevel Review By: I.Ball
Category: Sliding Bevels
Manufacturer: Crown Tools
Tool Type: Sliding Bevel
The Crown Tools Sliding Bevel review, also often referred to as the
Crown Sliding Bevel, covers the Sliding Bevel manufactured by Crown
Tools of Sheffield, England.
The Crown Sliding Bevel is a traditional sliding bevel made with a Walnut stock or Beech stock.
The stock has brass feet and head for the traditional decorative look and to offer extra protection to the stock.
The stock is stamped with the Crown Tools mark 'Crown Tools, Sheffield, England' along with the Crown logo.
The Crown sliding bevel has a slotted, blued steel blade which is easily released
/ locked in position with the use of either a brass lever adjuster or a wing nut.
The Crown Sliding Bevel is available with a range of different length blades: 7 1/2", 9", 10 1/2" and 12" (the 12" is listed as available with the Walnut, lever adjuster version only).
This sliding bevel is manufactured to British Standard BS3322.
The Walnut Crown Sliding Bevels used to be made with Rosewood as the Crown Rosewood Sliding Bevels up until I believe around 2020.
