Great... once you tune it up
I was getting tons of chatter and getting really frustrated... but once I took a file to the edges of the base to make them a bit smoother, it worked like a dream. Don't be afraid, just round over the edges a tiny bit with a file and this works great!
Great spokeshave!!…………… but...
Wonderful, well built tool. However, the iron (blade) is relatively sharp and contained in a small plastic bag. During shipping (apparently) the blade had cut through the plastic bag and was rattling around in the box. It has a chip in the edge that will require grinding to remove. Maybe Woodcraft will sell me a grinder.. 🙂
Not very good... especially for the price.
Blade was dinged and dull. Not a problem though. I'm pretty skilled at sharpening and made quick work of getting it razor sharp, but it's impossible to get fine shavings without chatter with this spokeshave. I own other spokeshaves without this issue. Not a fan at all.
Blade was flat, quality machining. Great fit and finish.
Good Shave for the Price
I own several premium shaves made by other manufacturers and I bought the Pinnacle to use on a job site. The tool has a comfortable heft and is easy to set up. The only issue I found was that the blade needed a good deal of flattening in order to get it sharp. After that, however, it worked well. It won't replace my premium shaves in the shop, but it is a welcome addition to my working set.
