150 firm, I have really enjoyed having this spoke shave around. I have done a few improvements to it but mostly kept it as I found it. The handles are original, and are nice hardwood, the steel is husky sound and in good shape.
John in Eagle River by Fred Meyers 242-83two4. Joe has 1st dibs, 24 hr hold pending.
Notice the wing nuts are hammered and cut by a blacksmith! Sweet.
In workable condition or display or both, I'd use it but I have always grabbed my draw knife instead.
Because this is a flat plane , it also was used to plane board edge grain, as the hands on either side run along the board. Pulling instead of pushing.
Sometimes called a "pull edge plane".
As some spoke shaves are curved, this one flat.
