Pimp your LN's


Recommended Posts

On my lunch break, I picked up a LN spokeshave at Highland...and I've just been holding it at my desk. 

 

Any second now I might start spokeshaving my chair rail.

 

 

So.... not because they're any better or worse than LV,

....or because of how you feel about their distribution model....

 

But just because they're so dang shiny and pretty, let's see some LN tool porn!

(I'll take a photo when I get home)

A little LV tossed in but, mostly LN

Is it a Boggs one? If so join the club :)

OK, I'll play.

 

This picture was taken this spring when the tools were brought out of the house and into the garage. :) I tend to gravitate to LN, but I buy whatever I think will work the best for me. I think I've added a couple of small items since then, but I can't remember.

Well back on track with the LN Boggs Spokeshave club of which Vinny and I are confirmed members.

 

Mine is the flat bottomed one.

This simply is the best spokeshave I've ever had. The Lee Valley and UK Clifton ones I also have are a joint close second (just a hair away from the Boggs) distantly followed by Stanley spokeshaves of which the modern versions quite frankly are not worth the metal they are cast from nowadays.

No I use a curved base Lee Valley one on concave curves. I have the Clifton concave and convex spokeshaves like yours too but haven't had chance to use them yet. They are intended for spindles on chairs and hollows on seats. I had the idea of using the concave one (the one for spindles or cutting corners off square stock) on guitar necks. I've not taken a picture of those but here is the web address http://www.flinn-garlick-saws.co.uk/acatalog/Clifton_Spokeshaves.html
