Tool Type: Spokshave
Model No: Miniature
This Veritas Miniature Spokeshave discusses the Veritas Miniature Spokeshave
produced by Veritas Tools of Canada.
The Veritas Miniature Spokeshave forms part of the ever-growing Veritas miniature tool range.
The miniature tools are ideal for model makers and any work that requires intricate, detailed work.
The miniatures are also popular amongst collectors, there is something about miniatures that captures people's hearts. I have been to tool shows in the past and seen people buy these miniatures just because they have been amazed by them.
The Veritas Miniature Spokeshave is made with investment-cast stainless steel and
hardwood handles which are similar looking to Bubinga; they are advertised as hardwood
handles, the Veritas tools used to be made with Bubinga.
The spokeshave is made with a low-profile body (9/16" tall) has a 45 degree blade bed and a tight fixed mouth opening.
This small spokeshave weighs in at just under 1oz and has a diminutive length of 3 1/2" (90mm) which is 1/3 scale of the Veritas Flat Spokeshave.
The Veritas Miniature Spokeshave is fitted with a 19mm (3/4") wide, 1.6mm (1/16")
thick, A2 steel blade which is hardened to Rc60-62.
Supplied in a hard, black, embossed, fitted, leatherette case which is packaged in a Veritas cardboard box.
