Record A65 Chamfer Spokeshave Review By: I.Ball
Category: Old Spokeshaves
Tool Type: Chamfer Shave
Model No: A65
The Record chamfer spokeshave number A65 is a simple 10 1/2 inch long
The A65 has a round face with two adjustable fences positioned under the shave.
The fences are quickly adjusted by releasing and securing the thumb screws on top of the shave arms.
The fences allow any through or stopped 'chamfer' to be produced and repeated evenly and uniformly.
The 38mm (1 1/2 inch) wide blade on the A65 spokeshaves has to be manually placed in position by hand.
Once in place, the cutter is secured by locking the lever cap on to the blade. The lever cap is locked / released by turning the lever cap thumbscrew.
The spokeshave body and lever cap are made from malleable iron which was advertised
as 'Unbreakable' and are finished with a red japanning finish.
The handles on the A65 are advertised as 'straight handle'.
Each handle has a convenient circular hole cut in the end to allow the tool to hung from a hook in the workshop.
The Record A65 chamfer shave was the successor of the previous Edward Preston 89 chamfer shave.
The Record A65 is almost identical to the Preston 89 shave with the obvious difference being the colour. Record took over most of the Edward Preston plane and shave designs in the 1930's.
