Quiz Time - What is it?

Do you know what it is, or what it is used for? This tool was made back in the 60's by a tradie to help him in his work as to buy one it would cost him a week wages. To buy one today it would cost around $100 No its not a scraper!

We might need a clue @r23on!

 

I assume there something in the leather case that connects to the tool?

Handle of a sliding bevel?

Re: Quiz Time - What is it?

So close Brad

Its a handle to hold the blade of a spoke shave. The blade slides in the slot and the screw is tightened to support the blade. Because the blade is much shorter than a plan blade for may it is difficult to hold and maintain the angle of 25 deg's. As the blade is moved forwad many would role the blade giving the blade  a roled edge, not great for cutting.IMG_1467.JPGI use diamond plates to sharpen my bladesIMG_1469.JPGSpoke Shave and plane bladeIMG_1471.JPGThe blade disappears in my hands

The bolt put me off thinking honing gauge as I thought it would get in the way...

Looking at wet stone sharpeners, not a cheap project to do right.
