Some time ago I posted how I made a small spokeshave from a LV piece that I had. At that time I also had a bigger blade from Ron Hock and I thought it was time to make the big brother.
I've skipped some pics to make it shorter.
Here there is the piece of wood with the blade recess made and the brass plate to be adjusted.
Then I made a series of cuts in angle to make the throat, chopped them away and smoothed it with a rasp first and after with a file.
Then I drilled the brass plate and drilled and tapped the holes for the adjusting screws.
Then I put the blade in and marked where the edge would sit on the plate.
Screwed on and glued with epoxy.
Filed in at angle,and fit the blade. In cases like this is when a big mouth vise comes handy.
