Curved Drawknife

Postby Stevenz » Tue May 26, 2015 8:30 am

this might take some explaining but hopefully the concept can be portrayed without to much confusion.
I saw a drawknife being used to shape spindles and form tennons which was shaped like an inverted "U" and sharpened on the inside of the radius.
is this something anybody else has experience or knowledge of.

Was is what we call a scorp over here? But the fact that you say it was being used to make spindles makes me think you are talking about a curved spokeshave. I am going out of town for a couple of weeks but will try to remember to send some images when I get back.

Google scorp then look for images.

You will see this.
