I could have bought one these old style wooden spokeshaves but decided it would be more fun to make one. I’ve never used this type before and always wanted to try one. I have a couple of Stanley 151’s, I actually prefer this new one. It’s more comfortable and works far better.
My Stanleys have terrible blades, they’re very thin, don’t hold an edge and for that reason they never get used. This week I also made a new blade for the Stanley, I didn’t make a video but it was easy to make and vastly improved. I may make a video at another time.
I also thought about making another one like this wooden spokeshave but with adjustable threaded posts and thumb screws. There isn’t any real need to make one like that as this works and adjusts perfectly well but would be an interesting build.
As always I'm happy to answer any questions.

These are the kind of videos that are so disappointing...5:45 to see you started over.....then used a bar and didn't forge from piece of spring? Stupid video

I'm very sorry I didn't live up to your standards. All I did is share my experience and in the end I showed two different methods. I still ended up with a fantastic tool. I'm sure your version of the video would've been way better. :)

Come on! Another HOMEMADE thing and who the duck has all those tools at home?? Seriously, when I read homemade , it’s like basic tools not all the ones here 😒👎🏼

Pask Makes already, well thanks, I will watch more of your videos, like I said, I like how you work, is just not easy for most of people to get done the kind of things you do, but yes I am interested on learning how to work that things you showed here. Thanks for taking the time to explain what you did....

I showed in a past video how to make a can forge. It's very cheap and easy to make, it's not amazing but can get you by and then if you get interested enough you can build a better one later on. That's how I work, if I don't have a tool I either manage, make it or buy cheap. :)

Pask Makes the oven, or whatever the name of that where you put the metal incandescent, and all those tools, aren’t like DIY easy tools for everyone to have, It is a good video and everything you did was great job, but definitely I don’t have not even half of all the tools you showed in your video ... so I couldn’t make any of that ...

I made it in my shed at home that makes it homemade. Also most of my tools are either budget tools or homemade (made at home in my shed). Just because I've built my collection of tools up doesn't make my projects less homemade! :)

I used vegetable oil for the quench. The first blade was made from an old car spring and the second one was 1075 steel. :)

That makes no sense, how is it useless? Fair enough you personally may not have a use for it but that's just you. A spokeshave is a supremely useful tool and this one out performs my Stanley 151's hands down! :)

Sorry to have to say this, but the German translations are very bad. I don't understand most of that.

I suspected that would be the case! They're automated through software but it's the best I can do. It actually takes me around a couple of hours to do the subtitles but I thought it would be worth it. You are very welcome to improve the subtitles through this link if you have the time ruvid.net/u-timedtext_cs_panel?tab=2&c=UCNyGbxoEo6CQvaRVEvItxkA :)

I have a question: Did you want to make traditional? Coz nut and bolt would've worked.. No?
Pask Makes
Pask Makes Month ago
There's a few different ways to make one but I like this style. I may make another with bolts to adjust the depth. I don't actually need to do that as this one adjusts very easy, but it would be fun to make! :)

Iwould consider your style as part of a normal learning process. “ not a mistake”. I enjoyed your technique and I try to learn as you move forward. I try to watch each of sessions.

sometimes you happen upon a vid and in the first few seconds wonder why your watching it. but then it starts to grow on you and by the end you realise it was thoroughly worth while and totally enjoyable. adding to my enjoyment was seeing you perservere and make best of your mistakes. an excellent effort to be honest.

Beautifully made and adding the mistakes just adds to the story. What are the advantages of using the tangs rather than just two holes in the blade that you can screw down?

Nice demo on the spoke shave, but wtf is it with people and their throwing shit in the oven for two hours? By playing the flame of the MAPP gas torch across the spine, or even by holding the blade's flat at the front of the still hot forge interior, the entire thing could have been done in less than two minutes with the exact same results; without adding another 3,200 kW to the utility bill. Any single edge knife can be tempered in the same way. After all, how do you think it was done before electric ovens were invented!
Pask Makes

Tempering in the oven is easy though, it's foolproof and I'm not in a rush. While it's tempering I don't just sit around waiting, I get on with something else. I've tempered many thing with a flame but normally that's when the tool only has a tip to temper. :)

Meu pai, carpinteiro, utilizava SPOKESHAVE em alguns trabalhos, mas a ferramenta desapareceu do mercado e das oficinas. Era a década de 1930-1940 do século XX. Fiquei muito impressionado com o belo trabalho que você mostrou. Parabéns. 👍

Really? You'd have ran screaming if you saw me flux core MIG welding in a short sleeved top and no gloves when I was back in Job Corps. I got the shop name of "flash" for good reason. It was stupid, I know, but I was young and "tough" back then.
