Edward Preston Spokeshave 1391

preston spokeshave

The Edward Preston spokeshave 1391 was a malleable iron spoke shave fitted with a best cast steel cutting iron, and direct screw and lateral wing adjustments. By means of a simple wing adjuster the cutting iron is adjusted sideways so as to set the cutting edge square with the face of the shave.

The distinctive handles were enlarged and hollow to allow the user to form a good grip.

This spokeshave was 10 inches in length with a 2 inch cutting iron and could be purchased with flat face or a round face. The 1391 spokeshave was originally available to buy either with a Japanned finish or a Nickel Plated finish. The Nickel Plated finish was the more expensive finish.
