    New spokeshave and plane

    I make no secret of passionately supporting any of our local as in North American niche tool manufacturers or people producing products with some really fine craft capability.

    In that line Ron Hock is one of these people and companies.

    If you going to WIA this year then Ron will have a couple of new kits on sale.

    a block plane and new spokeshave kit. Take a look at what he will be offering.

    cheers

    Wow a full size display model

    I picked up a LV model of a do it yourself kit while back. I need to put it together, one of these days.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I have a small metal lathe and other metal working stuff. Welding, well that is just something I am not real good at. I can stick two pieces of metal better together with a magnet

    Although I also enjoy metalworking, I neither like the smell nor the dirt that gets in your hands.

    As per those kits, I think that they give a chance to many woodworkers to have a very good spokeshave in a weekend.

    I made two with hock blades ( no kit) myself and they are a joy to use.http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...keshave&page=3
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I'm not too bad at the metal lathe.

    As for welding, my stuff usually stays together, but it sure is UGLY!!
